I’ve had a packet of Efaplast Light for some time, too, and I was really looking forward to using it. I don’t know why – there was something about the lightness of it that was inviting.
Upon opening the packet, however, my enthusiasm dropped off a little. It feels very foam-like, and really quite plasticy. I found it quite hard to shape it without it cracking open. I found it was possible to get it to do what I wanted it to do, but it didn’t feel very natural.
I find it quite amusing that, despite having so little experience of clay, some clays feel ‘natural’ and some don’t.
I left this drying for a day or two and I’m impressed that it hasn’t cracked further. I made another little object from it tonight, so we’ll see how this goes over the next couple of days.
