Della Robbia Oven Bake Clay has a deep rich brown color. It should be kept moist and pliable with water.
Dry objects for several days before baking. Place the object to be baked in a cold oven, leaving the door open two inches, and bake at 250°F (121°C) for one hour. Armatures must be removed before baking to prevent cracking.

Dries too fast

Comments about Della Robbia Oven Bake Clay:
In the past I had always used Crayola air-dry clay with my students. I bought this clay because it was labeled "oven bake" and I thought it would be mroe realistic to professional kiln-dry clay. However, when we started using it we found that it dried out faster than my 7th grade students could work with it. They spent the first lesson struggling to keep the clay from breaking when they made it in to coils and tried wrapping it. The lesson was designed to last more than one 45 minute class period, so we wrapped up the pots in damp towels and covered them with wax paper like we had always done with the air-dry clay. When we came back the next morning, the clay was completely dried out and the towels were stuck to the clay. We ended up going back to the air-dry clay and starting over.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not a substitute for the real deal
from Carbondale, IL
I enjoy working with clay and am always looking for alternative materials. This product caught my interest because of how it can be fired in a traditional oven. I also liked how it would dry over time unlike polymer clay. Unfortunately, when I try to work with this product, my hands get caked with dust really fast. It usually only takes a few minutes of handling time for it to become annoying. I will still use this clay, but not for making any sculptures. If you want to make small and simple things, this clay will work great. If you want to make something complicated and won't fit in the palm of your hand, I'd suggest buying something else.

This product is perfect if you don't have access to a kiln and want to work with clay. I used it to make several small sculptures, a coil pot, and a pinch vase and they all turned out great. After baking, there was minimal shrinking and they seem to be very durable. Will be purchasing again.

Easy Ceramics Without a Studio
from Winston-Salem, NC
I bought this clay as a means to making some clay ornaments for some friends and some small sculptures for an exhibit I'm thinking of putting on, but since I have no studio I need oven baking clay and honestly I find that this material works and looks almost as if it came out of a low fire kiln. This makes me extremely happy and I'll be buying more!

The Best I have found
By Tirchian Reckinger
from Hazel Park, MI
I sculpt masks from my home studio and have used different types of clay for this. Della Robbia is the most durable of clays for my sculpting needs and will use it in other sculptures in the future.

It worked great!
from Green Lake, WI
I run a camp for children and youth. We don't have a potter's wheel or kiln, but we wanted to have the campers make pots. This product worked very well! Our group made almost 60 pots - and every one of them turned out perfect!
