Q: so this does not require the oven??

submitted by S Hernandez - 6 years ago
  • A: Nope! You just leave it out to dry over night and you’re good to go!

    submitted byNik - 6 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: Is this safe to make a small oven for cooking?

submitted by Charlotte - 1 year ago
  • A: Hi Charlotte, Crayola Air Dry Clay should be kept away from open flames. Do not put in oven, microwave or kiln. There is no need to bake your Air-Dry Clay creations. Doing so will cause adverse effects to your sculpture. Hope this helps!

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

submitted by NP - 6 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 - 7 years ago
  • A: Awesome question, Clark! Thoroughly dry pieces may be painted with tempera, acrylic or watercolor. Hope this helps!

  • 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!

Q: Can you make plates, cups and bowls with this clay?

Since our art materials are not food grade and not meant to be exposed to liquid, we do not recommend using the clay to make functional tableware.

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

submitted by Sophie - 2 years 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 - 2 years 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 - 3 years 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.

Love this! Perfect for a 4 year old. My son did an art class recently and wanted to do clay. It dries fast enough that he could put it in his room the next day and for the price you can’t beat it! We’ve done 3 projects and barely put a dent in it.

It breaks really easy very hard to make a vase out of the clay
1 reply from Crayola team - 5 months ago
It is disappointing when a project does not work out. We are sorry to learn your experience with Crayola Air-Dry Clay was a frustrating one. We have some pro tips that may prevent this from happening in the future! To ensure your sculpture is durable, Air-Dry Clay pieces should be at least 1/4 inch in thickness. Less is best! Water can be added to air dry clay to soften or join pieces. However, too much water may result in breakage as the clay dries. Our Consumer Care Team would like to learn more about this issue and assist you further. Please contact us at 1-800-CRAYOLA. Our team looks forward to hearing from you and getting you back to sculpting! - Chris, Colorful Care Team

LP - 6 months ago, Verified purchaser
It's a good clay, I kept it in a bag and it stayed moist for a few weeks. Just note: If you add water, I found that this made it crack easier. If you are shaping over other parts and get too thin, it will crack. Any thin parts are probably really susceptible to cracking. I had the most success making thick chunky parts, like a pawprint ornament roughly 0.3" thick.

This product was soft and easy to work with right out of the package, but didn’t hold impressions well. I tried to use it to make molds of my children’s hands and feet for Christmas ornaments and out of 6 attempts 1 impression was there enough to guess the rest of the shape and fill in.

This is the second time I have purchased this clay. It works so well and is lots of fun for hours. My daughter will create many things and it goes a long way! We have made pumpkins for Halloween and even ornament name tags with letter stamps. Such fun projects can be made with this. Just make sure to dry it well before painting. As long as it isn't too thin the finished pieces hold up really well. I have used some decorations for over three years and they are still solid without any cracks.

This is a clay mix for crafts with kids and such. I am sure it can be used for many crafts around the house. It can be left to air dry. The time needed to dry will depend on how big the sculpture is, or how much of it is exposed to air. Since there is no baking, you can't really leave the sculpture outside, as it will dissolve in the rain.
