Newclay is fine if you make your products out of one chunk.,
This review is from: 12.5Kg Newclay Reinforced Air Drying Modelling Clay (GREY)I can't recommend this product. With another pack of air-drying clay I found that separate pieces could be adhered onto each other quite easily, giving a very strong bond when dry. This bond is made stronger if you soak the dried item in water for a while.
With Newclay, however, all the strength is in the nylon fibres, which you will find on your knife blade when you cut through it. If you try to stick two pieces together, they will fall apart when dry. If you try the soaking method, the Newclay simply dissolves into mush. With ordinary air-drying clay, soaking only softens up the outside of the items enough to help you bond the surfaces more strongly.
