Clay Tag DIY | creating with air-dry clay | by maritzagarcia.website 


Hello friend. Over here it seems I can't stop making stuff with my air-dry clay.

Normally air-dry clay takes 1-3 days to completely dry and no matter how careful. You still get shriveling due to moisture loss along the way. Especially around the edges, and not to mention. A little curling here and there too. I've found that placing a separate cardboard sheet on top of my clay with a little weight from a stack of magazines helps the clay dry flat(er). However, the wrinkly cracks are unavoidable with Crayola Air-Dry Clay.

Well, even with all that said. I can honestly tell you. It's still my first choice of clay to date. *In my defense. I haven't got around to experimenting with other clay brand. So I can't compare it to any other out there. However, when or if I ever do change brands. I'll make sure to keep you informed.

Here you have a peek at the way my clay creations look in their all natural state. I had a friend tell me she liked the way the clay looks in it's own ceramic color + texture. She said it looks so organic! Thank you Asami @www.asamihasegawa.com/blog/ and you know what, I agree.
