Product description

The versatile British 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 and tub 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.

Blossoming young artists can 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!

Professionals can take advantage of this clay by creating sculptures straight from the get-go. Use wires and polystyrene shapes to help you structure and pose yourcreations, 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!

If there’s any clay left, simply pop it back into the bag to preserve the clay’s moisture.

Rated 4 out of 5 by This was just what we needed -a large tub We are making Hedgehogs at the Cub meeting so needed a large quantity. We will paint them later, thought about the coloured clay but too fiddly in smaller packs 06 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very easy to use Good value, Enough to do 2xprojects and lots over Made Greek plate& volcano with grandchildren easy to wash off of hands and "Table" 27 January 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Overpriced. Having been caught short at the last minute for a craft club I run... I had to purchase clay from hobbycraft instead of my normal supplier. The price for the same 5kilo amount was THREE TIMES more expensive. Also the clay didn't adhere to itself at all well whilst the children were model making with it. Lots of water was required as it began hardening whilst still being used. Sorry hobbycraft but you need to lower your price for this!! 17 January 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not brilliant! The bucket split as soon as I tried to lift it out of the delivery box. Not helpful at all! Also the clay has now dried but still quite grey. Not white as specified. 06 December 2015
