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.
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.Read more ›
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!!
