Shift from Cold Porcelain to Air Dry Clay

I have started shifting from cold porcelain to air dry clay. The reason? It's less hassle. Although it costs a bit more, I find it easier to use. Here are the things I've experienced using air dry clay:

Pros:

  • It doesn't smell.
  • It dries quickly.
  • It doesn't shrink.
  • It is easier to manipulate.
  • It lasts longer.

Cons:

  • It's more expensive compared to the homemade cold porcelain.
  • You can purchase it online. 

Am I going to stick with air dry clay? Yes, especially that I'm planning to try creating bigger projects. Here are some of my creations using air dry clay:

For the Love of Agnes (Chapter 1)

 


“RISE
and shine, my Sweetie. It’s almost eight o’clock so you better get your sexy ass off of bed or I’ll go there and do it myself!”

“How I wish you could,” halos pabulong na tugon ni Agnes sabay pindot sa kanyang itim na clip-on mobile ear cuff o MEC device na nagsisilbing hikaw sa kanyang kanang tainga. She used to love his low baritone voice every time he wakes her up in the morning but after a couple of years, it’s starting to irritate her. Pero alam niyang hindi naman ang boses na iyon ang ikinaiirita niya tuwing umaga, kundi ang katotohanan na halos isang dekada na siyang gumigising nang mag-isa.

Tinalukbong niya ang makapal na blanket, pilit idinilat ang mga mata at dahan-dahang minasahe ang sintido. Ano’ng oras na ba siya nakauwi mula sa company party na dinaluhan kagabi? Sa totoo lang ay hindi na niya maalala. Ni hindi na nga niya maalala kung paano siya nakauwi at kung paano siya nakapagpalit ng damit.

Bigla niyang tinanggal ang blanket na nakatalukbong sa kanyang ulo para ilibot ang paningin sa paligid. Champagne pink wallpaper, check. Ivory colored satin curtain, check. Opaque sliding glass door, check. Nakahinga siya nang maluwag nang malaman niya na naroon nga siya sa loob ng kanyang kuwarto at nakahiga sa sarili niyang kama.

“You have a new message, Sweetie. Do you want me to read it for you?” narinig niyang sabi ng kanyang ever-reliable voice assistant na si Blake sa kanyang MEC.

“Yes, please.” Tumayo siya at wala sa sariling tumangu-tango.

“Alright then, opening message…It is from your friend, Eve…kadarating lang raw niya sa lobby. May client meeting raw kayo at nine o’clock this morning.”

“Oh, shit!”

For the Love of Agnes (Teaser)


Set in the far future where romance is a thing of the past, Agnes is still hoping to experience real love. But in the year 2090, men are almost wiped out and meeting someone to fall in love with is like getting blood out of a stone.

So when she meets Amiel, a dashing young lad who’s got everything that any woman could ever want, she grabs the chance and make him hers. Trouble is, Amiel is not the man she thinks he is. He may have the looks, a body to die for and the charismatic appeal, Amiel has a secret - something that even Agnes can’t wrap her head around.

How can she achieve her dream of having her own family in the new world of virtual beaus if Ezra keeps on telling her that Amiel is not the one for her? Well, why will she believe Ezra anyway? He’s a nobody who just pops out of thin air, claiming to be the one for her.

Between the two, Agnes can’t deny that she’s drawn to Amiel more than Ezra. She wants Amiel and Amiel alone. But why on earth does she feel helpless every time Ezra stares into her eyes as if he knows her every secret and every fiber of her being, as if she can do whatever he tells her, as if he has power over her?
