  2. Julie asked on
    What kind of paint do you use for this clay?
    1. Kate replied on
      Not sure sorry Julie ,we didnt paint it.We pressed coloured beads into the clay Haven't done this make but used air drying clay before with poster paint which was ok & if you wanted it to be long lasting once its dry varnish it ( something I'd not let youngsters do )This makes it more durable too.
      All the best ,
  3. Fey asked on
    Can one make a volcano for a y4 science project?
    1. Deborah replied on
      Yes I'm sure that's possible
  4. Aisling asked on
    Can you put this clay in the oven to speed up drying?
    1. sarah replied on
      No it doesn't say you can on instructions, you would ideally need to leave it for 48hours to ensure fully dry- from previous experience
  5. margaret asked on
    can you put models in the oven to speed up drying and does this make them dry to a more permanent finish?
    1. Ruth replied on
      Hi, I've not tried to oven dry this. I've oven baked salt dough before and even at a really low temperature it can distort the shape and sometimes crack the item. I find the finish and drying time perfectly suited to my little ones needs and I like that they don't have to go near the hot oven!!
  6. Donna asked on
    What colour is this clay? Is it whit, grey or brown please?
    1. Ruth replied on
      Hi, the clay is light grey and dries to an off white colour. I hope this helps!!
  7. Ann asked on
    Hi can any one tell me how long this clay takes to dry.
    1. Ruth replied on
      It really depends on the size of the object made. We made a model using 1third of the clay and this took about 5-6 days to dry out. We also made a few golf ball size models which took about 2 days to dry out full. It also depends on temp of the house aswell, I'd say it was on the cool side for the ones we made. I hope this helps!!
