Hi, sorry to ask questions that you may have been asked like a milloin times.

The Roma Plastlina, is it the non-sulfer, what hardness do you like to work with?

What is the water based clay your using to make the key or what ever ya call it?

I haven't really sculpted since highschool adn am starting to get back into it. I purchased some Chavant NSP clay, but it's not the easiest stuff to work with since you have to keep it warm to work with it. I'm trying to figure out what would be best for me to work with for making masks and stuff like this. I would appreciate any tips you have for me. =D

Here are the things I'm currently working on:

I'm about to embark on a similar mold making project, but as i live in the UK i can't get hold of ultracal 30. I've been suggested to use 'Crystacal R' as it is supposed to have similar properties. but i'm wondering if you know if this is true, or have any other suggestions for a cement to use that i can get hold of?
