By C. Finney on December 5, 2012
I work with "real" earthen clay that I fire in a kiln. This product does contain some clay and because of this it acts the same for joining pieces and drying. When joining smally pieces together you need to roughen up both surfaces, add just a bit of water and really get them attached. If you just stick something to something else (like an antenna, ears or tail) without REALLY digging it in, it will fall off. When drying it will shrink. If you have it molded onto something it will shrink to that shape and crack because of the shrinking. It is better to mold it to something that is pliable or will absorb moisture (paper bowl or towel etc). Hopefully this is helpful!

I have just started working with clay and decided to try different kinds and see how they compare, so I purchased the Crayola air dry.

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!!

My daughter bought this with her own money. She love to create and her favorite art project is pottery. A kiln is out of the question for home, so this was just the right solution. She created many little pots and dishes and painted them for her family and friends. A great craft idea, little mess, lots of imagination.

my family loves this clay. it is such a breeze to dry, only taking a day or two, depending on the amount used. it is harder to work with than play dough though, requiring a bit of clay skill. my 6 year old, who does not care for having to roll with lots of pressure to shape it, thought it to be too much work. but i think it was a touch of being lazy :- ) .....i would not purchase for a first clay for kids, but rather let them use an easier dough, and then graduate to this after some practice on the softer varieties.
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!

My 6-year-old asked me to write this review. She loves this clay because it is easy to make things and they dry easily as well. She wants 10 pounds of the clay for her birthday.

This is a lot of clay for a little money. So far, we've made two handprint "plates" for family and friends, but there is plenty left over to make figurines, too. It took about 4 days for the handprints to fully dry. I had expected this to be the lightweight "air" clay, but that's not what it is-- it's heavy, and you need to add water to it to make it really moldable, but it works well and dries well, and you can paint it afterwards. Good for creative little ones.

I bought this mainly for customization of small figures and dolls as it's supposed to dry to a hard firm substance. It certainly dries, only into a mess of cracks and dust. No sooner did I hardly poke it when it crumbled apart. Good news is, since it's so cracked and breaks apart rather easily, I think I can salvage the toy I was trying to customize. Honestly, even if you're using this for your children to play with I don't think it'd be a good idea, I have a feeling they'd be upset when they found their sculpture falling to pieces.

Crayola has been a trusted brand in our house for many years. We are really enjoying the Air Dry Clay! It comes in an airtight container so you can save some for later. Nice quantity so that you can make several small ornaments or crafts. The Crayola Air Dry Clay is hard to work with, but it's great for strengthening little hands! Roll some out and use a cookie cutter to make an ornament. Roll into balls and make a snowman. The only limit is your imagination. Drying time varies. The snowflake pictured took a day to dry. The snowman is on day three and isn't quite there yet! I have added pictures for your review!
