Hey guys! I am not dead… yet. I’ve been busy up to my neck with crafting, as you all know I’ll be selling stuff at a local doll convention.
But let us go on to an entirely different topic: my Modena paste review.
Some of you requested this review, and pointers on how to use it, so here it is. It’s going to be short, and droning, so have a Coke or coffee while you go through this, okay?
Modena paste, for the uninformed, is a jar of liquid Modena clay.
At first glance, it looks like it’s the same as Elmer’s glue (white PVA glue), or liquid Sukerukun, but this stuff is much better. Not only because it dries translucent (as does PVA glue and liquid Sukerukun), it’s much thicker than the other two I’ve mentioned.
Some of Modena paste’s uses inlude:
- as a glue to stick two pieces of clay together
- as a deco sauce for cakes and sweets
- coating clay to make chocolate
- mixing with clay to get whipped cream
You can add any kind of paint to it, but to retain its translucency, I recommend using glue paint, glass paint, or oil paint.
What do I do with Modena paste? Basically, creating chocolate pieces. Scoop out an appropriate amount of Modena paste into a plastic cup or bowl, add dark brown acrylic paint, and dip balls of clay to make chocolate truffles.
I also use it for:
Nothing really complicated, just grab a mold (I use chocolate cups I got from Daiso), pour some brown Modena paste into it, and then let it dry completely for a few days. This is undoubtedly the easiest chocolate you’ll ever make, and the most realistic too
See, I told you it would be really short.
Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
