Very Wet and Sticky
from Finger Lakes NY
Comments about Amaco Self Hardening Clays:
This was very wet clay for my use. I am not an art teacher, but use it in an outreach multi-disciplinary science program. We do a very brief clay activity and time is short and clean up facilities limited. The increased mess with this clay as compared to the Claystone I purchased several years ago was an issue. I wouldn't say this is a flaw in the clay--if you are going to use it over the course of weeks in an art classroom you may want it very wet--but for me it was a problem. If you don't want wet clay be sure to allow for time to wedge it or give it some time before working.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

By Chris the art teacher
from Atoka, TN
We have been using this product for 1st-5th grades making coil pots and then carving. This dries very well and hardens to a solid. We have covered this and used a second time 7 days later with no problem. Great hand molding clay. We have used this for two years and love it.

I can't thank you enough for your help and quick delivery of the clay. 76 first through 4th grade students made pinch pots to emulate American Indian art and learned a lot. the clay was perfect and we will use Blick again in the future,
A good self-hardening clay for basic slab, coil, pinch pot applications when kiln firing is not available. When painted with acrylic it is quite durable - smaller projects < 6-8".
first time user ,so far so good
real handleable.easy to work with

Amaco Self Hardening Clay ~
from Dearborn, MI
We use this product to create objects of art that are meant to last ~ forever ~ or at least a very long time!!! Since it is air dry clay, which makes it more fragile, the art piece is most durable if no part of the art piece is thinner than a 'finger' width. The air dry clay construction process is the same as ceramic clay construction where you have to 'score and slip' to attach pieces. Students love working with clay! Thank You!!!

TRUE WHITE is GREAT
Can't say enough about the white its really white and the grey can dry a bit dark. see tips for usage on the terra cotta version same applies but this stuff is great I use it for facilitating youth retreats and the kids love it. Make sure you use plenty of lotion afterwards because it will dry out your skin a bit and avoid adding water when possible. I tried adding a few images so you could see how youth used all 3 colors together but was unable to upload on the site...
