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?
Great! <br>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. <br>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! :)
This looks amazing! Great instructable :D!
Thanks a million!
