New Trend: DIY Clay Doljabi Sets

I've been noticing a new trend lately...doljabi sets made out of clay! I'm not very crafty but if you are, I'm sure you can make these. I would suggest Crayola Model Magic dough since they dry nice and firm. We would love to see someone's attempt at making them. Actually, the first 2 people to send us a photo of their work will receive our Little Seouls Korean alphabet poster! Just email us at Good luck!
