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, but 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 Easy, fun, cheap! Never tried using clay before so wanted to buy something cheap and easy to have a play around with... this ticks all the boxes! Under £3.50 for the kilo, easy to mould and shape, and dried good and solid! Easy to store in an airtight container so great to revisit another day. Would definitely buy again! Saw they do an even better value tub of 5kg so if you're looking for more, that's the one! On a side note, post-lockdown opening distancing and organisation is probably one of the best in any store I've been to. Proficient and well executed. Staff also adhering to rules unlike many other shops where complacency seems to overrule. Felt more than comfortable visiting my local Hobbycraft store during this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new product for a new project Recently bought hobbycrafts air drying clay because I was starting a new project of modelling a Marionette. I was unsure which material to use but with the help of a very knowledgeable salesman person I settled for this product. I found it very easy to use, it dries quite quickly, takes paint well and best of all the price is very good. I have used another branded air drying clay before but this easily out performs the others. Thanks hobbycraft for giving me endless hours of enjoyment.
