We have been using a mystery plasticine to line our dissecting dishes for embryo
surgery. The stuff we use works just fine, but we have run out of it, have no
idea what it was, and how to find more of the same stuff. I have a tried a
couple of other locally available clays/plasticines, but haven't found anything
that maintains its integrity when immersed in holtfretter's for several hours.
In looking through various references, mention is often made of American Art
Clay, from Indianapolis. Unfortunately, I've been unable to track this brand
down in the San Diego area. Does anyone have the name of a similar brand of
plasticine clay that is available locally, or know how I might get a hold of
some American Art clay?
