    Are you trying to make a model of a house with clay?  What kind of home and what will it be used for? What exactly are you trying to do?

    I am making a clay model. I understand air dry clay will crack fast and try to make my own oil base clay to make the model head. Can you tell me how to mix my own oil base clay as I cannot find in stores.

    20 lbs microcrystalline wax
    1 1/4 gal. #10wt oil
    7 lbs plain automotive grease
    50 lbs gritless dry clay powder
    (Such as Kentucky ball clay, or Gordon clay)

    Melt wax, oil, and grease together in an electric
    frying kettle; stir clay in slowly once melted.
    Pour into shallow microwave-safe plastic
    containers,or into a wet plaster mold.
