How long should you air dry clay?
It all depends on the thickness of your air drying clay art. But as a general rule, air drying clay usually takes between 24-48 hours at room temperature.
Can air dry clay get wet?
We don't recommend getting air dry modelling clay wet as the texture will become soft again. If you want to avoid this, we advise applying a coat of varnish or acrylic paint to help the clay become water-resistant.
Does air dry clay fully harden?
Our clay fully hardens and can even be sanded, drilled and decorated. By applying glue, acrylic paint or varnish, the clay will become stronger and more durable.
Is air dry clay better than oven baked clay?
One type of clay is not better than the other. But, polymer clay is more durable and waterproof once baked. Air drying clay can be more convenient for artists and once sealed with a varnish or paint, it can become durable and water-resistant.
