Comments about Prang Das Modeling Clay:
It worked for what I need it for. It was a pain to use though. It is heavy. I almost thought it was oven bake clay. By the way the packaging is in a lot of European languages, except English. I had to look it up online to see how to use it. The fact that it was takes about a whole day to dry is annoying too. If I wanted my beads to be heavy oven bake clay would have been better for me since it would dry much faster. Cracks are visible but nothing a layer of paint couldn't fix. Basically if you are stuck with it, it will do but I would never recommend it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Cracks despite best efforts
At first, I thought this was the clay to use. The in no time, it started cracking despite my best efforts... despite my going back over it in what felt like a hundred times. And the parts that were cracking were not thin.. no reason for it to do that. It also has a bad chemical smell which made me wonder what it was made of and whether it was safe for my son to even smell it. The packaging didn't give me any insight into that, as it is made from Italy. To me, if they're going to sell in the US, then give US customers better insight to it. Either way, it would not even make a simple bowl like structure without cracking in many places. I finally gave up because I was tired of going back over it with water.

Not up to my expectations.....
from Naperville, IL
I bought this product to make my own ball jointed doll. It was my first time using air-dry clay before, and while I have used polymer clay, I found this clay difficult to work with. I was hard to apply to things or to put together without adding a little bit of water to it (found out after sometime of frustration) and it could break easier than I thought. I guess the only really good thing I can say about this product was that for the most part it was durable and it came out in a very nice white when it was dry.
I purchased this in hopes of loving it as much as I do love using paperclay since this product is cheaper and there is more of it. However this product in the white is much stiffer and harder to mold and has a very strong gasoline like smell, it also shrinks more and exposes more cracks , I find that the creative paperclay bonds better to itself. Anyway I was hoping for more, or at least the same ease of use and pliability but instead I wish I hadn't purchased this product.
Love this clay
I use this clay to embellish terra cotta pots and then paint them - it's smooth and easy to use
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best air-dry clay ever!
I use this product to create my art dolls. Out of the many clays I've used, I have found this to be the best. It's pliable, smooth and easy to sculpt. I use an armature and find that, upon drying, the clay does not crack around the armature when it shrinks. It drys to an extremely hard finish and can be easily sanded and painted. Layers can be applied after the initial sculpting without chipping off latter or exposing weak joints. This stuff is awesome!

I use this product for my art dolls. It is so easy to use and I know when the clay dries it's super hard. I also use it to make jewelry.

By Painting it Personal
I'm using this clay to create pendants for necklaces to hand paint using acrylic paint. I was very happy with how strong the material is once dry (I threw it against cement to test it) and how easy it was to shape and smooth down. A great product that holds the paint well!

This is the very best air-drying clay I have found. I do a lot of Santa faces; and have found this product to be easy to sculpt; and it can be smoothed with a wet finger or sculpting tool while still moist...or, if the clay has hardened, you can sand it to any degree of smoothness you wish.
