Love this stuff!
from Jacksonville, FL
I've tried a number of different clays and this is the best for sculpting my art dolls. It's smoothness is perfect for creating small detail. It dries without cracking or shrinking but can be kept workable by using a fine mist spray bottle or a damp paint brush. I never remove the wrapper. I open one end and fold the wrapper back over the unused portion at the end of a work session. Once opened, the entire package is kept in a ziplock bag with a damp paper towel in it. I belong to a group of amateur doll artists and have shared my clay with them. All have switched to Polyclay ModelAir

Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with this clay. As with the majority of air-dry clays, the Model Air will absorb moisture if not properly sealed. If you ever have questions about the relative water-resistance of clay bodies or how to seal them, we hope you'll let us help. Just call 1-800-933-2542 (8am-5:30pm CST M-F) or email email@example.com to work with a Product Specialist.

air dry clay
for my needs this clay is not a good fit. I was hoping for something I could work and rework until I got it just right.. This clay is very soft and dries out quickly. It would be good for younger children to work with as it is soft and pliable.I need something that has a little more body tok it and is able to be reworked alot.

Best Air Dry Clay
from Port Townsend, WA
Air dries to a hard, non cracking, non-shrinking perfection. Can be carved and sanded. More wet clay can be added to dry without a problem. Easy to use and easy soap and water clean up. A great clay!

This product dries really well and holds form. Only downside is it starts to dry quickly! So be sure to package the clay you aren't using into an air tight container before working with the clay.

I am a lifelong artist and have used quite a bit of sculpture materials and clays. This product is fantatsic! it is reasonably priced, will dry far more durable than imagined and is easily sanded and painted. It takes detail well and models like traditional modeling clay. It also has a long working time, even in hot dry southern Arizona here. I am quite impressed and highly recommend this to anyone who doesn't want to deal with an oven. Keep any unused clay in an airtight container ... zip lock bags work well. Keep a working piece in a zip lock bag with a wet paper towel.
