Amaco No. 20 Versa Clay is an extremely versatile, de-aired moist clay with a variety of uses for the ceramicist and potter.
Versa Clay can be reworked and shaped much longer than other clays. Even paper-thin, hand-formed ceramic flowers can be shaped without cracking. This clay can also be press-molded.
Bisque fire to Cone 04 (1971°F, 1077°C). The glaze firing range is Cone 06–5 (1855°F–2205°F), with a recommended glaze firing of Cone 05 (1911°F). At Cone 04, expect 6.4% shrinkage, 14.6% absorption, and a bright white bisque. At Cone 02, pieces have a 6.1% shrinkage, 13.6% absorption, and the bisque is cream buff. This clay is not talc-free, but it is ACMI-approved for talc content.
A 50 lb carton consists of two 25 lb bricks, each in a poly storage bag, so any amount can be used as required and the rest stored for future use.
Note — This clay is AP non-toxic when moist.
Note — Any combination of clay, plaster, sand, and molding material totaling 50 lbs or more does not qualify for our free shipping offer.

my favorite clay

This is my favorite clay to use with elementary. It is smooth on hands, easy to handle and fires to a bright white. I love to use it with the stroke and coat glazes afterwards.

I loved the product. The delivery of the clay was however frustrating. I waited nearly 2 weeks to receive the clay, which meant my students were waiting a good week to get started on projects. It was stressful waiting.

Versa Clay No.20 is a wonderful clay for high school students without breaking the budget! It is very pliable, fires to a bright white at cone 05, and is easy to work with! I highly recommend this product for ceramics/pottery courses or if you want to do a mini clay project in your classes!

This is a very nice firing clay. The feature I probably appreciate most about this product is its smoothness. Some more sandy clays will leave holes in a piece you are working on if you try to sand away imperfections, but this clay is great. One downfall worth mentioning is that it's not quite as solid as other clays unless you let it dry for a while. But if you learn to work with it then you'll get the hang of it and that won't really be a problem. Good stuff.
