a question for you all!!  
Hey everyone, it's time for a dumb question from a beginner!!

I have 3 of those Mousse-chan paper clay kits, but I'm somewhat unsure how to use them. I know I need to put some sort of mold release or veggie oil in the molds before hand, but what then? Do they just dry with exposure to air? Does the oil interfere with the drying process at all?

Sorry for bothering you all, but I really want to make my own sweets but I can't bring myself to just dive in a start trying things without a little more prior knowledge lol.

Thanks for your time~!!

Hello !
I've used the paper clay and molds without using oil and got a mint result !
But it's a bit difficult take the piece off without damaging it a bit, then let it dry.

I never tried it before, but you can try to let the clay dry into the mold and then take it off.

I hope it helps :)

I just like to let the paperclay dry in the mold until its hard enough to take out without damaging it. That seems to work well enough!
