New flexible clay about to hit the market.

I tested a sample of the new flexible clay Cosclay last weekend while at the Pittsburgh guild retreat. I made a variety of samples and baked them at 275 and 300 to test if they were as flexible as advertised. I was pretty happy with the results at 275 and while it was a bit less flexible than the videos imply I think that was because I was using a different oven so I’m thinking it was a bit hotter than I thought. They are about to do a kickstarter campaign, check it out.
