when properly rolled and manipulated (no cracks) it dries quite sturdy. my little one was not pleased at how hers fell apart and mine stayed together when dried, but that was not fault of the product, but lack of experience on my kid's part.
a great buy!
The clay comes in a resealable plastic tub that keeps it moist. If it does happen to dry out a little, you can just add some water. I read the posts about the clay cracking when it dries so I was cautious and started small. My first project was a jar that I covered with the clay and them imprinted with an embossing sheet. Sure enough, when it dried there were splits in the clay. I didn't mind for this project because I was going for the look of old cracked pottery so I painted it and went on with life.
For the next project I had a little bit of cracking and fixed it by adding a little water and smoothing it over. I haven't yet tried drying it in a plastic bag, but most people have said that the cracking occurs because the clay dries too fast. It also seems to me like it cracks more on thinner things.
I tried making some coasters and rolled them out to about 1/4" to 3/8" thick (see second photo below -- the two on the right are air dry clay). These did not crack at all and turned out great. I painted them, added some bling, and glued cork on the backs. So I think the key to not having cracks is making things thicker.
On the moonshine bottle I used the clay to make the studs around the top. Again, no cracking. I did glue them on with E-6000, just to make sure they stuck, and then lightly painted them with brown paint. Loads of fun.
All in all, especially when considering the price, the air dry clay is a good deal and a lot of fun for adult crafters as well as children. Let your imagination run wild!
Get some and try it out!!
Even when molded on a more elastic surface, it cracks easily without even touching it.
I would recommend this product only for fun molding but DEFINITELY NOT for actual crating because of its fragility.

This clay is easy to use. It takes one day to dry. Then you can paint the clay. It does leave a mess on the surface you use it on.Published 5 days ago by TMarsh
