Another Word for Plasticine?
I found a wonderful book on mosaics and was immediately stumped by the use of the word, "plasticine," by its author (a Brit). A Google search brought up mostly references to the Beatles (those of you old enough probably can figure out why!), but a search of "mosaics," came up with you lively bunch of folks. Must confess I have been spending (surely, not wasting) undue amounts of time while AT WORK reading through your sweet, funny, informative posts. Please, please, can one of you enlighten me? What is plasticine and is there an American equivalent?
Thank you ever so,
