We used this clay with a children's holiday Bible club group of 60! It was very easy to use, minimal mess, and kept the same bright colours when dried, which was satisfying for the children. The clay keeps very well in the sealed pots - we were still using it up months later. It is helpful that you can use pritt to stick bits back together,should your creation get damaged.

I can beat the other reviewer as I'm 54 and this product is all for me :o)

So far, I've made a couple of brooches, a pair of earrings and I can't wait to make more. There were no instructions with the pack but it reall is idiotproof and there are loads of videos and craft sites online for inspiration, if you need it.

The clay is easy to work, very pliable and soft but once I was happy with the things I made it's drying quickly. I have used clay which needed to be oven baked and this is a MUCH easier item to work with. It also smells quite pleasant and the colours, though perfectly fine straight from the tubs, can be mixed together to give more.

You don't really need special tools either but if you get the modelling bug they'll probably be worth buying.

Have fun!!

This is very good clay for children - and adults. I use it myself for trying out projects (and, in fact, used some just a few hours ago the results of which are currently drying). It sets fairly well but if you need to do something thin it will curve as it dries so you have to keep turning over the item. The drying time depends on the thickness of the finished sculpture and also on the temperature of the room in which you're drying it. Currently here's it's very warm and it's drying quickly. The colours are pleasant and mix well with each other. You can also mix normal paint in with it.

A few reviewers have said that it is too hard to use and doesn't stick to itself. Actually it shouldn't be hard at all, and if it is hard when you've bought it, I suggest you return it for a replacement or refund because it will probably have been stored badly before sale. It's normal consistency is a little like playdoh, so you can see it should be a soft clay and if it isn't then something is wrong.

The containers are airtight but sometimes it's easy not to see that they aren't completely shut - you have to press the lids down quite hard to make sure. I've lost a couple of containers before through having forgotten to check.

As for not sticking to itself - well it does, but you have to either do it while it's still soft or, as it dries, you need to add a little water to it with a finger or a paintbrush.

The colour of the clay will come off on your hands but is easy to wash off. It will also come off on most surfaces and, when it's fresh, it will dampen anything beneath it. I use it on a bit of cling film (which is also useful to use to smooth it - just put two small layers of cling film over it and press through with your fingers smoothing as you do.

This Air Drying Clay is not suitable for making models. The product does not bond/stick to itself - for example if your child rolls a ball for say a teddy bear's head and then a smaller piece for the nose, the two parts WILL NOT stick to each other in any way whatsoever. Even with glue they just fall off. Basically all this stuff is any good for is making shapes. if you want to make a plain star shape or a moon then the colours are bright and the clay is very easy to mould and shape, but if you want to actually make anything of any interest then this is not the product I would recommend. We have purchased many products for our son as he loves modelling and trying to find him the right one which will stick together and then dry hard enough (without being baked in the oven as we all know baking in an oven that you cook in IS NOT A GOOD IDEA FOR OBVIOUS REASONS) so that his creations will not spoil when being touched, this has to be the worst purchase yet - very disappointed and returned the 3 boxes to this seller which took a lot to sort out but we got there in the end thanks to Amazon - thank you Amazon for always being there :-)

Nice colours, nice to the touch and easy to model (we bought it for a child). But no matter how hard you try to connect different parts (if, for example, head is made of one colour, body of another etc) they fall off - immediately or after the clay dries off, and this is disappointing.

This clay was for my 3 year old son and I to just enjoy playing with, and its brought nothing but misery!
You cannot put 2 bits of 'clay' together, they just won't bond.
When it dries bits fall apart.
My son -AND I have had many attempts at making shapes or just anything we can and it is just useless! My poor son has had to stick to just squeezing a whole blob into a 'shape' and leave it at that, which by the way when dropped from his small height onto the carpet- breaks.
I wish to use stronger language but we' ll just say USELESS!!
