Welcome to dickblick
Soft and pliable, Crayola Air-Dry modeling clay allows children to create solid, durable arts and crafts without the need for an oven or kiln.
Smoother, finer, and less sticky than traditional clay, Air-Dry Clay softens easily with water and quickly cleans from hands and surfaces. It’s ideal for traditional techniques such as pinch, coil, slab, and score-and-weld, and for making stamped impressions, beads, and embedding found objects. When dry, pieces can be decorated with markers, acrylic paints, tempera, or watercolors.
Crayola Air-Dry Clay is available in two colors and in 2½ lb and 5 lb reusable plastic buckets, or an economical 25 lb value pack.
Variety Pack, Bright Colors
This pack contains five 0.25 lb foil packs of Crayola Air-Dry Clay, including one each of Coral, Emerald, and Violet, and two White.
Variety Pack, Neutral Colors
This pack contains five 0.25 lb foil packs of Crayola Air-Dry Clay, including one each of Charcoal, Terra Cotta, and Sunglow, and two White.
Note — Any combination of clay, plaster, sand, and molding material totaling 50 lbs or more does not qualify for our free shipping offer.

No Kiln? Use Crayola Air Dry Clay
By Mrs. McCurdy K-5 Art
from Lincoln, NE
We've used the air dry clay for sculpting and hand building. It performs best in uniform thickness and when properly hydrated can be sculpted or formed with ease. Dries very hard in 3-5 days. We paint it with Blick Acrylic and the results are great!

I have been using this for my kids' classes at a local art center, and find it convenient with the perfect consistency. Its air-drying quality makes it easy to use....

I did find the clay to be a bit on the dry side. However, a little bit of patience got it to a working consistency without too much trouble.I used it to make a handle for a crochet hook. I did need to take extra care that there were no cracks (the clay did crack while I worked it, so I smoothed out all of the cracks carefully). I did not find that 24 hours was enough time for this thicker piece to dry - you need at least 48 hours for a hefty piece, perhaps more. The handle is working fine and while it is a bit heavy, it has held together quite well.

We had to make vases for a Social Studies project. We made 4 vases and they all cracked and fell apart. Tried to make another but made it thicker, thinking that would help, and it cracked and fell apart too. I would never buy this again. It was expensive and did not even stay together. Horrible!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Don't use it
By Art teacher
from Jacksonville, Fl
I use the 25 lbs. crayola air dry clay in my class room, it is great to work with and mold, however when it dries it falls apart. My students create AMAZING pieces of art work, and when they touch them or try to paint them, they crumble or break. I WILL NOT be buying any more of this product.

crayola air dry clay
this product might work well if you are teaching a kindergarden class to make pinch pots, but I was teaching middle schoolers to make figurines & I will never use it for that again. It was not very bendable & it craked. I tried to keep it moist by spritzing it often, but it still was hard to work with.
