love this stuff
I use this clay for youth retreats and each student sculpts something meaningful to them, the best part is that they then have something to take home with them for a lasting memory. be careful with the darker colors adding water to smooth edges can cause some discoloring over time. But if used straight out of the box in more of a carved method rather than molded you won't have any such problem.
great product - use it all the time
from Tulsa, OK
This is the one clay that works for us at our museum where we have no ceramic equipment or facility. The air dry clay makes it possible to teach visitors about Native American pottery through the experience of making it and have the clay harder at home.
Self drying pottery clay
from Tucson, Az
The clay is being used for a school project. It dries a nice terracotta color, so you really don't need to paint it. If you do not get it to thin it will not crack and is strong. It dries on its own.I can't think of anything that is not good about this clay.

Great Air-Dry Clay
We've used this clay for a Girl Scout activity for years. It's easy to work with, cuts with a wire, leftover can be kept in refrigerator or even frozen until you need it and it dries nicely. If you are making a flat object, you will need to keep an eye on it as it dries as the edges will curl up slightly.

Ideal for a clay retreat
from Fort Collins CO
I used air drying clay for the first time. The product was ideal for the circumstances. I taught a clay weekend retreat in the mountains for ten people. The results were amazing and everyone was ready to do more. As an art teacher, the outcome was as good as it could be.

Mexican Pottery Clay
from La Quinta
As I start spinning pottery again after 30+ years, I find the clay to be very usable. I like the fact that it is self hardening since I do not have the availablity of a kiln. It would be nice if each box had an informational sheet, explaining what can and can not be done with the clay.....e.g. baked in an oven, the specific glazes that would work with the clay, etc. Not a big deal however.

It's really easy to work with, but the package could use some improvement, since is a humid product, if air gets in, the clay could get a little mold, you can scrape it off and it's all good tho.
