It just made me sad
Comments about Amaco Marblex Gray Clay:
I've worked with air dry clay before and I have never had this bad of an experience. i bought the big pack (I think 5 pounds) because I thought it was a good deal. First of all, this clay was sticking to everything- too moist? Maybe. It was hard to form anything out of it. When i finally got my project formed, I left it to dry at room temperature. Haven't touched it at all for over 24 hours. It seemed to be hardening just fine. 2 days later, all I had was a crumbled mess, everything fell apart into pieces. I was hoping to use this clay for a project but nope, never again. I'd request a refund but I used up half of it already. Stick to the more expensive but reliable clays.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I used this to make clay necklaces and it worked very well. Clay held shape and size and I was able to rework imperfections before drying. I was a little disappointed that this gray clay wasn't as gray as I thought it would be. It's just slightly darker than the white clay. Not too much of a difference. I had hoped for it to be darker.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I would purchase again

Good for fun! NOT for durability!...
It is a fun clay to build with! Still use it once and a while. But if you want to make something with clay to set on a shelf i recomend gluing it down! It is fairly brittle and easy to break after it dries. Example: Sculpted solid full size hand, fell about 4 feet onto carpet and broke into 4 pieces.THIS PRODUCT CAN NOT BE WRAPPED AROUND A WIRE OR RIGID FRAME. IT SHRINKS TOO MUCH AND CRACKS ALL APART WHILE DRYING!, as box states!

Exactly what I was looking for!
from Greencastle, IN
I needed a product to fabricate a gag gift to be marketed on the internet - didn't know what to use. I found this company and the support staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They realized immediately that I am not artistic in the least and they took the additional time needed to make sure my needs were recognized and met. The product was exactly what I needed and the service was exellent. Thank you!!

Air dry Clay
from Grants Pass, Oregon
A great price and enough clay for approx. 60 children to have a sizeable piece to play with.
