Do you have any tips for using Modelling Clay?
We always recommend that you read the manufacturer's care instructions thoroughly before you begin, and to cover your surfaces and clothes to protect them. Kneading and massaging the clay will soften it and make it easier to work with. The warmth of your hands will spread to the clay and make it more malleable. If using paper-based clay, you can add a small amount of water to soften the clay or to remove any imperfections. Use your hands and tools like knives, spoons, or even spinning wheels to form and shape the clay as you desire.
Crafting tools can be handy for creating more complex projects, as you can be much more exact with them. Dry your clay on a clean, smooth, nonporous surface where your clay can dry for 24 hours. Put your clay down and do not disturb or move the clay while it dries. You'll need to be patient to make sure that you don't ruin your project. With some of our products, you can use the oven to speed up drying time, turn the oven on to its lowest setting and bake for a couple of hours. A cool, dry area (one with low humidity) is best and mild air circulation is also helpful. These products are not suitable for children under the age of three years old and you should always ensure adult supervision for those that are slightly older as they may pose a choking hazard.
