Our 5kg bag of air-drying clay is Australian made and is the perfect choice when a kiln is not accessible to fire normal clay. This revolutionary new clay has all the properties of clay yet it air dries. You’ll experience little shrinkage when drying so it can go over armatures such as newspaper balls, wire and foil to construct larger forms without using a large quantity of clay. Add water if clay is too hard or cracking while modelling.
Store clay in a cool place wrapped in plastic when not in use. Leave models to dry in open air. When dry apply acrylic paint.
Working with Oz Clay
Small amounts of water will improve the clay’s plasticity if it is too hard or cracks while modelling. Untouched clay should be stored in a cool place in an airtight container. Left over clay should be stored in an airtight container separate from untouched clay to prevent contamination.
Allow models to dry slowly by partially covering with a plastic bag and slowly removing the bag more and more over a few days.
