Air Dry, Clay, Modeling, Moulding, Dough, is easy to work with.

Simple shapes can be formed, sculpted, or made with molds.

It is a popular medium for young and old.

Children find Clay particularly easy because Clay can be re-shaped again and again and again before drying.

Some Tools to Use When Working with Clay:
  • Your fingers
  • Rolling pins and canvas
  • Popsicle sticks and toothpicks
  • Cookie cutters
  • Plastic bags
  • A clay cutter (wire)
  • Sponges
  • Straws
  • Various carving tools, nuts and bolts, old toothbrushes and anything else you can get your hands on that will create texture.

    Prepare Your Clay Correctly
Preparing your clay is an important part of the sculpting process. Once you’ve taken the clay out of its packaging, knead it to make it smooth and soft, a pat of handlotion (any) or a splash of water, makes this job easier. This is referred to as ‘conditioning’. The process combines all of the tiny platelets in the clay to spread them evenly and make it softer, and more workable.

Create an Armature for Extra Support

This is one of our lesser known air drying clay tips, but can save you a lot of frustration. Although air drying clay is strong, like all clays it is also quite heavy. In some cases, you may need an armature to support your sculpture. An armature can be thought of like a skeleton for your sculpture. It can be constructed from wire, booker rod, or sealed timber and should be fastened to the base board. Your sculpture will need this extra support if it is thin in certain areas or top heavy.

Preserve Sculptures Properly for Multiple Sessions

Sometimes you won’t have enough time to finish an intricate sculpture in one session. To keep your piece workable for the next session, wrap it in a damp tea towel and then wrap it in cling film to make it airtight to prevent drying. If you use this method properly, the clay will stay in a workable state for up to four days.

Store Clay in an Airtight Container

If you’ve finished a project and have clay left over (gather all pieces), wrap it in cling film, put it in an airtight container, and store it in a cool dark place. This air drying clay tip will save you a lot of wastage if you don’t use all your clay at once.

Minimise Cracking with a Wet Mix

Like all clays, air drying clay shrinks as the moisture evaporates during the drying process. Sometimes the shrinking causes cracks. To fix cracking, let the clay dry out completely. Once it has dried, create a wet mix of clay (use the same clay you’re working with) and fill the cracks, smoothing, seams and ridges with fingers dipped in water. When the reapirs are done, let the clay dry again. It shouldn’t crack after this and you will be surprised at how unnoticeable the repair work is.

Most of all, let your piece of art, dry properly!

Air, slow, drying is best and causes the least cracks.

Drying time depends on the item you created.

We recommend, 3-5 days drying time, before you paint, varnish, or embellish your creation.

While crafting with Clay is easy, crafting with an experienced Crafter,

will give you the best results.
