There are two basic kinds of sculpting clay, Water Based Clay and Oil Based Clay.

Check out our Oil Based Clay


Water Based Clay

Water based clay is simply that, clay mixed with water. It is usually very inexpensive but must be kept covered or it will dry out. Water based clay is easy to work when it has just the right amount of water, which is easy to manipulate. It is easy to remove from a mold with a water sprayer. Its disadvantages are equal to its advantages; it is often hard to control especially if a project goes into many days, it sags and separates easy, and it can't be used with plastics, epoxies or polymers.

Mexican Pottery Clay

Mexican Pottery Clay

Mexican Pottery Clay will shrink during drying, so it is best to hollow out bulky sculptures or wrap a slab of clay around a loose crumpled paper armature before modeling.

Allow the finished piece to dry slowly and evenly on all sides at room temperature and away from heat until hard. When piece is completely dry, decorate with AMACO Rub 'n Buff, school paints, temperas, acrylics or liquid crayons. After decorating, it is a good idea to coat with shellac or varnish to seal it and make it water resistant.
