Welcome to dickblick
Sculpt-It is ideal for freehand modeling and creating realistic sculptures. No kiln or heat baking is required. It is non-toxic, ideal for children who are old enough to work with modeling or polymer clays.
It dries to an almost ceramic hard surface with minimal shrinkage, and can be moistened while pliable for piece-to-piece adhesion, smoothing, and blending to avoid cracking. Paint the finished piece when it is dry, or leave it unpainted for that natural look.

STOP NOW! Don't waste your money.
By Megan the Art Teacher
from Washington, MO
I have used this with ages k-6 with horrible results. The clay OFTEN is totally dry when I open the container. I complained to Sargent about this and they were happy to send me replacements, which were also dry! The kids get frustrated by how quickly the clay drys. It doesn't stick well, even when we use a bit of water. My suggestion...DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We are sorry to hear that this clay did not perform as expected. A member of our Customer Care team will be contacting you for further assistance.

Ok but not that great.
from mitchellville, MD
I thought the difficulty with this stemmed from my own inexperience. But as it turns out, teachers apparently also had a problem with this too. It's false advertising on the bucket to say it doesn't shrink after drying. It does and it cracks too. People also say thick things take days to weeks to dry and even then may not. What I do is set it out in one position for 24 hours then the next day flip it over exposing the other side to air and it dries in 2 days time. I thought it was a great bargain at first but now idk if I'm going to buy this again or not.

Best product for art!!!
from Chicago, IL
This product is not really hard to use, in order for this clay to do not dry out is to use/mix with a little bit o lotion, do not use water!!!, the clay can be mix with paint before use, but only use acrylic paint, do not use oil. let is sit one day for better dry, if you have any left over, you can put in a plastic zip bag, so you can use it again, if you paint it and want to reuse, it will dry after 2 weeks, so use it before 2 weeks for a better result.

Not as bad as it seems
from Pharr, Texas
I bought a 2lbs container of this product last year and have done over 100 phone charms and earrings with it. Only had about 2 pieces get cracks but that was because I didn't mold it enough or add enough water when blending it. I used Tempera paints to paint it and then added sculpey satin glaze for a shinny effect. I would recommend it to anyone but would Also recommend reading instructions and tutorials on using this product. Don't add too much water and don't let it dry up if you aren't done. When finished it takes a day to fully dry depending on the size. I turn mine over every few hours to allow even drying or hang them. The only thing I would do different with this is buy a paint sealer to apply before adding glaze some people don't take care of them and end up peeling some of the color off. My own collections are in perfect condition and over a year old. For small projects its perfect.
not as advertised
from little rock,ar.
I wish I had read these reviews before I used this stuff. I am doing a wood carving of a life size heron. I made the legs from 1/2" steel rod and the toes from 1/4" rod. I started out using bondo to coat the legs before rasping and sanding to finish. Cannot apply and form bondo with hands so I found this product at local art store(hobby lobby). The label on bucket reads will not shrink or crack. I did not apply more than 1/4" thick but 2 weeks later and its still cracking. I filled the cracks with more sculpit and it also has cracked. Now I'm filling the cracks with wood filler and if this does not work I will have to grind all of this stuff off and start all over. Bondo is hard to work with but can be filed and sanded after a few hours. I have been over 2 weeks working with this stuff. They should offer a full refund for false advertising. I was forced to give it one star.

Don't get one drop of liquid on it!
from Toronto, On
I haven't found that many flaws about this product. It's like every other clay, you have to keep adding water or else it hardens because you're hand takes away the moisture. I found a couple cracks after it dried but it was at places where I most likely left in a few air bubbles. I managed to make a bobble head from this product! My only negative review about this is that on the packaging it says "no bake" so I figured it means it'll stay forever hard after it dries. Once I put a dab of water on it, the surface gets soo slimy, I'm afraid to paint it. So I think I'm going to have to bake it. That isn't much of a concern, I'm just really upset the packaging lies to you.
Not worth the effort
from Sherwood, AR
I would never recommend this product to anyone. I first bought Sculpt-It clay because of the convenient class pack and the good price, but was sorely disappointed in the end.The first problem I faced was how quickly it dried and crumbled in the hands of my inexperienced students. A few short minutes of kneading and rolling and all the moisture of the clay is gone. This lead to appendages failing to stick to the central figure and falling off to be later glued back on with a hot glue gun. Some students' clay just began crumbling, becoming nothing more than a pile of useless pebbles. The next problem I faced was the slow drying time. Even after a whole week, many pieces were not completely dry! Lastly, was the problem with paint. The clay did not take paint well at all. I tried both watercolor and tempera, both of which were easily wiped or accidentally rubbed off. Even if a piece was successfully painted, I would come back to find cracks had formed on almost every piece.
