Oz Clay is the most ‘clay like’ material available when a kiln is not accessible. It is an Australian made air drying clay that has all the properties of normal clay and requires the same skills for modelling with clay yet it air dries.
Similar to real clay.
Air dries with very little shrinkage so it can go over armatures such as newspaper balls, wire and foil to construct larger forms without using a large quantity of clay.
Small amounts of water will improve the clay’s plasticity if it is too hard or cracks while modelling.
Untouched clay should be stored in a cool place in an airtight container.
Left over clay should be stored in an airtight container separate from untouched clay to prevent contamination.
Allow models to dry slowly by partially covering with a plastic bag and slowly removing the bag more and more over a few days. This will help prevent cracking.
Paint with acrylic paint or Langridge Decorative Finishes.
