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 Really easy to work with This was my first time working with air dry terracotta, and I found these blocks excellent to work with. It stayed malleable for 12+ hours outside the packet for me - though I was making quite thick tealight holders. Excellent value for money, and I'd definitely buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saw this when I was buying another item Bought this as I said on a previous visit. Love your store. It did what I wanted it to splendidly, although I used less than a quarter of it. Wrapped it securely in case I need it again. Lovely stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fim & Fantastic! Great texture, does exactly what I've always wanted from clay. Colour after drying is fantastic too. Lots of fun to do with friends- we made a little family of clay men then left them in the sun for hours & hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff. An excellent product easy to work and capable of producing all kinds of pots, vases and sculptures. The terracotta is much, much better than the white version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terracotta clay I usually use the branded clay that hobby craft sell I believe it’s called das, I found it was quite dry and crumbly and it had an odd texture. One day I decided to get hobby crafts own brand terracotta air drying clay as I do not have access to a kiln. I also bought this as a cheeper option to the dad clay and I actually thought it was better quality. It doesn’t dry out too quickly and if you want to keep it wet it is possible to maintain it. I really enjoyed working with this clay because it feels like crgular clay especially after you fire it, it is very strong so you can use it to build, I used it to make a pot that looks like a Moroccan lantern and I feel it was a great purchase. For future if you ever want clay go for the hobby craft branded one as it’s so easy to use and is affordable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and great results The Hobbycraft brand of air drying clay is superb for model making It is moist and flexible once removed from the packet allowing you to create intricate shapes . When it is dry 24 hours later the clay is firm and strong without cracks I would buy this product again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product! This is my favourite air dry clay, I much prefer it to other brands. It has a more natural feel and look to others and dries with minimal cracking. Highly recommended!
