How do I make lavendar or lavender oil paste?

A full pot of PMC paste will take around 25-30 drops of lavendar/lavender oil to make a strong paste. It needs to be pure essential oil, not oil diluted with other things. You can buy this at a health food shop or shop online.

If you make your own paste you'll need to estimate how much oil to add and it may be a bit of trial and error.

Art Clay have a product called Oil Paste which does the same job.

It has been found that any pure essential oil has the same effect when mixed into slip so if you don't like the smell of lavendar, try another type of oil.
