Your gnomes are too cute! I've used Paperclay before and I loved it. Light, durable, paintable, super. I tried to get some from the AC Moore the other day but they didn't have any- I was sad. Maybe someday I'll try Michaels (I worked there in high school and I'm still avoiding it after all these years
). I wish I had this famous "Hobby Lobby" in my neck of the woods, it sounds cool.
