okay for the price, but the fumes are awful!
on January 17, 2017
As a whole, this product is okay. It's a decent polymer clay for a decent price. A little harder than more commonly used clays, but a little mineral oil softened it enough for my liking. The colors blended well and I found that I liked the more solid consistency, since I'm still a novice and the sturdy texture meant I could abuse unfinished pieces with clumsy hands and they wouldn't get bent out of shape.
HOWEVER the fumes are quite unbearable!! The smell is not unlike inflatable pool toys fresh out of the package. It's not so strong that you can smell an open package across a room, but when you are working with it so close to your face for an extended period of time it can become quite nauseating. I am sensitive to chemical fumes as it is, so after only an hour or so of mixing and conditioning, I had a pounding headache. Placing a fan nearby to circulate the air helped a little bit, but not much. This brand also cooks at a different temperature and time than the majority of other brands, so it can be difficult to mix with an existing collection.
Overall, if you are on a budget and have a high tolerance for chemical fumes, then this may be the clay for you. But personally I feel that the quality and fumes are NOT WORTH saving a few dollars.
