Studio has enough animation clay for just one more film after the manufacturers of its favourite material closed down
Stop-motion animation studio Aardman is running out of clay, it has emerged. According to a report in the Daily Telegraph, Aardman has been left with enough animation clay for one more feature film after the manufacturers of its favourite material closed down earlier this year.
Newclay Products ceased trading in March, meaning that specialist animation clay Lewis Newplast is no longer available. The company was originally established by the Lewis family, art teachers who operated out of a garden shed in Chislehurst (and after whom Lewis Newplast is named), and was until recently run by Paul and Valerie Dearing.
