Modelling Clay & Plaster
There are lots of options when it comes to our range of non-toxic modelling clay and plaster. This is a very versatile medium, allowing you do to so much without the need for a kiln or pottery wheel. You can make sculptures, tiles, figures, pots and so much more. On top of that, air drying clay is also great to use to fix cracks in pre-existing items. Take a look through our collection and you will see that we have supplies here for beginners all the way up to experts.
Fun, Tactile Craft
To use your modelling clay, simply knead it to make it more pliable, using a small amount of water if necessary, then you will be able to start making your shapes and patterns. Make sure you have something down on your work surface to avoid getting the clay stuck onto your table. Once you are happy with your shape, leave it to dry and harden for around 24-72 hours - it will say on your chosen clay how much time it takes to dry. Then you can paint your clay, though this may not be necessary if you have some coloured clay.
Colourful Air Drying Clay
For the little ones, there are some wonderful packs available that feature a wide range of modelling doughs in all sorts of vibrant colours. These modelling doughs have been dermatologically tested, so that you can be sure that they are safe. Plus, although very colourful, they will not stain clothes! Colourful clay modelling is not just for the kids, though. You will also find sets comprising of up to 24 colours which will be just as fun for adults. These clays can be used for air dry or bake in the oven modelling. On top of that, there are even special glow in the dark colours, as well as translucent colours for marbling effects!
Modelling Plaster & Mod Roc
Plaster of Paris can also be a fun method of modelling. You will first have to mix it, but be sure not to do this with your hands. Then you can pour it into a mould. Or, for free form designs, you can pour it into a balloon, wait till it become gummy, and then shape it from the outside. Or you can also opt for plaster coated bandages (Mod Roc) which you dip in water and wrap around your chosen item, often a wire structure. As well as the clays and plaster, you can also buy spatula sets to help you work patterns and textures into your creation.
