Welcome to dickblick
A combination of several different clays, Activa Blackjack Low Fire Clay is mined directly from the earth in East Texas. This extraordinary clay is never dried or processed into a powdered form, so its natural character and pliability (also known as plasticity) remain locked inside. The process of blending and wet screening results in a very plastic, silky-smooth, air-dry clay.
Use Blackjack Low Fire Clay for craft projects such as hand-building, wheel-throwing, sculpture, and modeling. This non-toxic, white modeling clay is excellent for children's arts and crafts projects, for introductory ceramics projects, and for artists at all skill levels, from beginners to professionals.
Pieces made from Blackjack Low Fire Clay must be fired to become permanent.
Note — Any combination of clay, plaster, sand, and molding material totaling 50 lbs or more does not qualify for our free shipping offer.

Great for hand shaping
By H Hubbell
from Fredericksburg VA
Comments about Activa Blackjack Low Fire Clay:
This clay does well with hand shaping techniques including pinch and coil methods. In the leather stage it burnishes very well to a nice high shin. This clay performs well in pre-puebloan open fire pit firing methods with reduced cracking when burnished.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I Love this clay!!
from Eugene, OR
As my title says, I love this clay!! Just getting back into working with clay and I wanted a low fire clay that would be easy to use. I have a small kiln and am doing smallish hand built projects, bowls, cups, plaques for my shop. It is perfect. I love the white color it fires to. It can be left as is or add glazes. The clay is pliable and very easy to use. I highly recommend for first time clay users. This is a great clay.
