UPDATE:  I moved this Mario into a clear jar so I could see him better, I still feel a Recycled jar would be fine, but for the subject matter in this 'able I feel the clear jar is better.

Are there any other molds that can be used for the models inside the jar?
This also works with aquasoft plasticine (from Staedler/Eberhard Faber). It doesn't harden, but once in the jar that doesn't matter. Obviously it resists water. Simple shapes can be shaken without problems.
It can be used by younger children than Sculpey (But it's not Play-doh!).

Hey cool idea! Now, if you use oil I wonder if it will eventually melt the clay....clearly I now have to try! :)
