Q: so this does not require the oven??

submitted by S Hernandez - 5 years ago
  • A: Nope! You just leave it out to dry over night and you’re good to go!

    submitted byNik - 5 years ago
  • A: That is correct! Air Dry Clay should never be placed in an oven or kiln. Most pieces will be safe to handle carefully within a day, but should be allowed to dry at least 24-48 hours before painting or sealing. Actual time to completely dry may take several weeks, and the clay becomes stronger with time. Hope this helps!

Q: Does the clay crack over time? Looking for something long-lasting to capture my dogs paw print.

submitted by NP - 4 years ago
  • A: Thanks for your question! Crayola Air-Dry Clay is a natural earth clay which air-dries to a hard solid. Shrinkage should be minimal during the drying process, so using this clay for a paw-print project should work out great. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-Crayola. Best wishes for a colorful future!

  • A: I actually just looked at a paw print I made about 6 years ago. It is still an entire piece, but there are cracks all over the top. I'm currently looking into a sealant I can use to keep it from getting any worse.

Q: What paint should be used on this when dry?

submitted by Clark - 6 years ago
  • A: honestly any type of paint. i prefer acrylic paint , not crayola. but obviously it’s your preference. i just think acrylic paint works best!

    submitted byamandah - 5 years ago
  • A: Awesome question, Clark! Thoroughly dry pieces may be painted with tempera, acrylic or watercolor. Hope this helps!

Q: When molding a sculpture with the clay, will it stick to your hands?

submitted by Sophie - 2 months ago
  • A: Hi Sophie, Thanks for reaching out! While the Crayola Air-Dry Clay might leave a bit of residue on your hands, it is easily cleaned up by washing your hands with warm water and soap. If any residue remains, use baby wipes, baby oil or make-up remover. Hope this helps!

Q: I would like to use this to make a candle stick holder. Would that be safe? Will this clay be flammable?

submitted by Dod - 1 year ago
  • A: That's a great question! Although not considered flammable, we do not recommend using Crayola Air-Dry Clay, wet or dry, near an open flame, in an oven, microwave or kiln. Exposure to high heat sources may cause drying out, cracking and browning. Hope this helps!

Q: Can this be used to fill in a crack on a decorative vase (no water will be going in the vase)?

submitted by nope - 1 year ago
  • A: Great question! While Crayola Air-Dry Clay can be used to fill in cracks on sculptures made with the clay, we can't say for sure if it will work with other types of clay. We'd suggest testing in an inconspicuous area to make sure you are happy with the results.

Definitely dries fast so I kept having to add water but it worked for what I was trying to sculpt. My only thing is that after it’s completely dry, you don’t want to get it wet again. So I wouldn’t recommend using this clay to make a vase or something, unless you use some sort of coating over it after it dries.

Terrible, if I had the option to give a minus for the rating I would have! I was so excited to do my daughter’s hand and footprint and gave a lot of time and effort to do it but then after few days when I left it to dry, it cracked into so many pieces leaving me very disappointed and all that effort working with my child to get those prints were gone to waste!!!

Was able to make quite a nice sculpt out of this. Has yet to be seen what paint does. Used a bit of white glue to help bond pieces and reinforce structures, so far has worked like a charm; able to bind dried pieces to one another with no problems.

lol i bought it out of stock today but it’s good but it kind of starts to crack a little while it drying, it’s very smooth and easy to work with

We are tickled pink to hear how easy it was to create your masterpiece with Crayola Air-Dry Clay. If you need to repair any of those cracks that formed, try placing a few drops of water on the areas that are cracking to smooth them out, or place a pinch of wet clay and squish it in the cracks and smooth with your finger. Hope this helps get your artwork in perfect display condition. Happy sculpting! - Chris, Colorful Care Team

McKenna - 11 months ago, Verified purchaser
I really loved this product I won’t lie and while I was working with it, it was very easy to mold and make as I soon finished the line on a piece I was very proud of and I let it cure in a 48 hour period it crumbled during that time which made me really upset especially since it was a gift I was making for my little sister. It worked on other smaller projects maybe this could have been my mistake but I made the layers thick to result in non cracking but still very displeased.

This tub of clay gives you enough working material for a decent sized project. In our case, we needed to make a full bowl of mock macaroni and only used about half of the clay in the tub. Easily moldable and dried right on schedule.

Loved sculpting with this, doesn’t dry too fast. I left my small sculptures to cure for a month and when I went to paint them using Golden acrylics (great quality paint) it would easily chip/peel off. I did 3 coats, waiting for them to dry each time, and then tried varnishing them and… they still peel/chip at the lightest touch.
1 reply from Colorful Care Team team - 1 year ago
While we're thrilled to hear sculpting with Crayola Air-Dry Clay was was positive experience, your disappointment after painting your works of art is understandable. Once dry, color can be added to the clay using tempera, acrylic or watercolor paints. We're sorry your paint didn't adhere. We'll pass along this feedback to our Creative Tools Team, and would like to help you further. Please contact our Consumer Care Team at Crayola.com/support. Hope to get you back to sculpting soon! - Chris, Colorful Care Team

GamingMama - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This clay is very nice and fun! Depending on the thickness it can dry fairly quickly than what it says. Cleanup is very easy as well! I helped my child knead the clay pieces so that it can stay together better while it dried. Made holiday ornaments and may keep using this to make other ornaments for other holidays that are coming up! Definitely worth the price to have fun. Just FYI one tub is actually a decent size. Don’t make the mistake of buying 4 at once like I did!!

i love this clay!! it feels so nice and is super easy to mold. i love making coasters with it! i highly recommend covering any clay you’re not using in a damp paper towel and having a cup of water nearby. once i form whatever i’m making, i dip my finger in water and use it to smooth out any textures or finger prints! it’s messy, but so worth it. i let my pieces dry for about 2 weeks before handling (i went out of town after making them) and i haven’t had any breakage! i painted them, waited another week or so, and then covered them in uv resin and cured! i’m obsessed with how they turned out! i made incense and palo santo holders, coasters, and a jewelry holder.
