This cute bear was made with Delight air-dry clay following a tutorial from the makers of Creative Paperclay.
Delight clay is one of my favorites. It is extremely soft and easy to shape or mold. It holds its form while shaping and then air hardens to create an extraordinarily lightweight (about ½ the weight of Creative Paperclay) finished piece.
Water base paint can be kneaded into Delight to make an infinite range of colors with which to work. Of course, it can be colored with any kind of paint after it's dried. Note: When you add acrylic craft paint to tint the uncured clay, it will dry to a slightly lighter color.
This teddy bear tutorial is suitable for beginners....modeled with basic shapes, mostly teardrops!
