Welcome to dickblick
Amaco No. 25 White Art Clay is an all-purpose, low-fire, de-aired moist clay that is gray-white in the raw state and more intensely white when fired. Suitable for hand-building, modeling, and wheel throwing, its extreme plasticity makes even very large pieces easier to throw.
This clay's unusual resistance to crazing makes it ideal for the classroom and all types of ceramic work.
Bisque fire to Cone 04 (1971°F, 1077°C). The recommended glaze firing is Cone 05 (1911°F), but this clay can be fired as high as Cone 3 (2138°F) without distortion. At Cone 04, shrinkage is 6.3% and absorption is 13.7%.
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.
This clay is talc-free.
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.

Perfect Clay for the Classroom!
from Whitehall, MI
I have been using this clay in the classroom for a few years now. I find it to be the best clay for creating all different types of projects, including clay mask making, pinch pots animals, and coil pots. It is easily malleable and soft in consistency, and most importantly easy for the students to mold.

This clay is great!
from Newport News, VA
I don't exactly work with clay on a regular basis, but I'm taking a college course that requires it and my gosh this stuff is so soft and fun to work with! My teacher said clay would get messy, but I honestly don't think this stuff is THAT messy. Like yeah you're gonna get clay stuck to your hands and whatever it touches, but as long as you keep it in a secure area it's really manageable. I also love that it is a light color. My class recommended a clay called "Soldate 60" and I don't know how exactly that one compares as I never bought it, but any pictures I saw online looked a bit too dark and my class required a light colored clay. This Amaco white clay is actually perfect! I find it easy to make very smooth surfaces even without using any tools and the clay does not dry out super-fast. I dunno how fast other clays usually dry, but I had this stuff sitting out for HOURS and it was still moldable. I spritzed it with a little water before putting it back in the bucket just to be safe though. If anyone's looking for a fairly inexpensive clay to use for class, or even just for fun, I highly recommend this stuff.

great basic clay!
I really like the elasticity and quality of this basic clay. I've always gotten great results with little problems. Good for classroom use as well.

Clay not exactly plastic
Not a real plastic type clay and is what is considered short, will tear or crack and not maintain moisture if out for a short while. A positive is that it has a pretty short set up time for reclaiming, good breakdown in the water bucket in a overnight, and reclaiming for air dry takes about 2 days on a plaster slab which tells you that this clay is not enough ball clay & bentonite and possibly too much feldspar. Been reclaiming and mixing this with other clays to use give this clay some plasticity. This white color of this clay leaves noticeable dust and tracks everywhere. Alas, all dried clay leaves dust and residue, yet I ordered red clay for my classroom to reduce the obvious clay film on everything.Maybe I am wrong and this is what a true clay body is for artistic endeavor is supposed to be. Good for classroom use I guess as I have seen it before, but I inherited this clay and am using up to finish off this old stuff. I would not use it for my own personal work.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

"loving the classic clay"
I use this in my pottery class for begginers of course this stuff is awesome! It's easy to work with fun and simple enough for everyone to use. Over all it's cool but the componets could be altered a little for consistency.
