ha ha ha
this clay has 2 dough material inside the clay and hardener
use 1:1 ratio then mix it well

the pink one is a clay and grey one is it hardener


now for inner surface

since it' hard to whole dough stick to inner paper first thing you need is to clean the inner surface and spray some water
this step is to make the dough easy to stick on the paper surface

alright see you next update i got great journey wahahaha:lol::lol::lol:

a week after i'm home i got the way around my papercraft helmet since it's hard with complex surface i got idea how to deal with the dough
here the step by step

first make the clay dough like before

then take some dough, not much, make it ball

use pipe to roll the dough until it thin enough and not break apart

i let it dry first, because this part of paper got wet so it danger to stick more dough
