Clay For Animation

Last week I received a call from Don Carlson asking about a clay that wouldn't melt under hot studio lights yet can be softened and manipulated for his animation work. We had a long discussion of possibilities and a series of emails followed. I wound up sending him a sample clay kit by Chavant which might fit the bill. But as we continued our correspondence I learned that Don's questions weren't coming from a man with just casual knowledge of clay. He in fact had studied clays and their components and had actually written a book on the subject.
