Lightweight Clay

So I'm needing some lightweight white air dry clay that I can use to cover up some seams on some foam. I've looked up a product called Cloud Clay does anyone know exactly how well it works, or would you suggest something else?

Thanks! ^_^

I'm not sure how well it would work on foam, but Paperclay works well for me. It is air dry and it is naturally coloured, I believe (which is just an off-white). With some water, it should apply easily. Final product should be lightweight.

I have to agree with PaperClay. I use that for all of my clay needs and it hasn't failed me yet. It's lightweight and air dries, but it's dries pretty darn strong. I've made helmets from it, and molds for things.

The one problem I have had with it is that if you're applying it to a smooth area, like plastic, you'll see it when you paint it because it will have a rough texture. I've just spread glue over it which solves that problem. But if you're just putting it on foam that shouldn't be much of a problem. I would put a little glue (Elmer's works fine) on the seams before putting the clay on just to make sure it holds extra well-- but it should even without glue.
