I love this stuff! It air dries and you can sand it and paint it with watercolors (which I love)
a few things to watch out for: it's not good for very delicate details. also it dries out quickly once you open it, so you have to keep it in a airtight container. I made these guys with it:

Those little gnomes are too cute!  I've never worked with paperclay before, but now I want to give it a try!

I didn't realize your gnomes were paperclay! I love it, personally, but I'm not a good judge because I'm not a big clay person. I love the easy cleanup and lightness of the final product, though. Plus, it's so easy to color....

WOW, my mom is a gnome freak so we have like 100 of'em around the yard.  I bet she'd love these.

I am the luckiest.

I remember using this stuff when I was little but I called it self hardening clay.  I don't remember what I made out of it but distinctly remember the feel of it and the little fibers in the clay.   I love you gnomes.  Way too cute.
