Clay and Paint
So we got some sculpy brand clay at Joann's the other day for about $2.50. Also bought some metallic acrylic paints for about $2 a bottle. We were able to mold and model about 20 gears out of the block of clay, and painted them after they baked. The paints we bought were by Deco art, and the copper color (worn penny) was awesome. The gold and silver were thin and took 3 or 4 coats. I dug out another bottle of silver I had from a different project, but it was just as thin. All together, though, it just took some extra patience. I think spray paint will be the way to go once we use up the acrylics that I bought.
