Working with Crafter’s Clay

  • Prevent clay from drying out while you work by placing clay on a damp paper towel and covering with another damp paper towel. When finished, store in an airtight plastic bag with a damp paper towel.
  • Mix colors by pulling, like taffy. When mixing multiple colors into white, mix the colors together first, then mix the blended color into the white just until the color is even throughout.
  • Clay may be shaped and molded several times, but will dry out if over-worked.
  • Wash your hands before handling a different color to keep clay colors pure.
  • Allow molded embellishments to dry before gluing clay to project. Items will dry within 24 hours, but may be handled sooner if done with care.

Molding Tips

  • Always press a smooth surface into the mold. Any crease in the clay will appear on the final molded object.
  • Push clay in from the outer edge of the mold for a clean finish.
  • After unmolding, use detailing tool to smooth any rough edges
