Product description

Air Drying Clay is the perfect essential for beginner and expert artisans who want a high-quality finish without firing up an expensive kiln.

The airtight plastic bag ensures that the non-toxic clay retains all of its moisture, right until you open it up. Shape your clay by kneading it first – to smooth the rougher edges, ensure that you always have a bowl of water with you.

The perfect medium for fixings, ceramics and sculpture, the clay takes at least four to five days to dry out, depending on the size of your finished work.

Discover the uniqueness of this clay by popping them into moulds and cutting out chunks by using old cookie cutters. Once the clay dries out, they can paint straight over the top by using poster paints and acrylics! You can also take advantage of this clay by creating sculptures, with wires and polystyrene shapes to help you structure and pose your creations, smoothing it out with water as you go.

Once dry, decorate this clay by using an assortment of mediums and paints, ranging from acrylic paints to glossy varnish. Don’t forget to use sealer if you want your clay project to be waterproof!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from handyb size pack ready to use Our Brownies used the clay to make tree spirits and attach them to tree trunks. Enviromentally friendly as will just fall off tree and "dissolve" in the earth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than the white alternative After successfully sculpting with terracotta clay previously I decided to try the white alternative which I do not recommend. The terracotta clay is much easier to work with and actually sculpt with, whereas the white clay sinks and is much harder to shape, although it is easier to adhere to itself and dries very smooth and much quicker, so would work better for simpler projects. But overall and more specifically for sculpting, the terracotta clay wins, although thats only between these two options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is so easily to use What is better than using something that is what it says on the pack We used it to do a school project and my 8 year was able to work with it on his own while I looked on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The clay dries out and ready to paint. What a super pass time for granddaughter and myself. The clay was very plyable and easy to use on little fingers. We made little flower pots and once the clay dries out it's ready to paint.
