Hi!  I am new to using Art Clay.  What is the best way to save the clay left in the syringe tips?  Should I wrap it with a damp cloth and plastic? Thanks!

I have a small storage container that I keep filled with water. I just drop the tips in there, when I am not using them.  Some clay collects in the bottom of the container and every once in a while I distill that off and use it for recycled paste.
Sometimes I  buy several syringes at once and just keep a different size tip on each one.  This way you can rest all 3 in a jar of water and each size is ready when you need it. I keep a bit of plastic wrap over the top to slow evaporation and they last on my bench for months.

The syringe work works great on top of the cork clay to make filigree style beads or objects.  You will want to use 2 or 3 layers of the syringe work to make your filigree strong enough. You can also strengthen it with paste layering after you have laid out the lines. The finest tip may be too small to make strong enough lines.
