It has been some time that I wanted to do something about the missing hair of my Yotsuba toy. One of the solutions was to redo the missing part with clay. I saw some soft clay on sale at Daiso in one of my shopping trip and I was way over my head when they have clay that matches Yotsuba's hair color. I thought to myself this could be God sent!
I do have some experiences in molding Play-Doh and plasticine but I was not so sure about with clay. What is this Soft clay? I started reading the package prints for answers.
It also come with printed instruction of how to use it.
It look easy and so I started to mold...
Taking reference of the right hair to make the missing left hair. I tried hard to get it to fit on the hair but the clay was too soft. And when I try to leave it there for it to be hard, it started to crack. It's like I can never to get anything done.
After close to an hour and a half of struggling and wasting much clay, I threw in the towel. :(
After cleaning up, my options are:
1. Contact revoltech for another spare part...(but how? Do they read English? Anyone tried before?)
2. Get another Yotsuba owner to lend me the left hair to do cast and remold it (Need the owner to lend and someone who is experience to do the remoulding).
3. Get another Yotsuba (not economical and worst rob another person their chance to get a Yotsuba).
So anyone can help my Yotsuba?
