Air Dry Clay

Postby tamarind » Mon May 11, 2009 9:58 pm

I just discovered the wonderful air dry clay. It is so much better than the messy play dough.

I found some instructions in the internet, and I taught my girl to make roses using the air dry clay. It is surprisingly easy ! This photo shows the first rose she made entirely on her own.

Anyone knows any good books or websites for making other things using the air dry clay ?

Hellooo... Tamarind.

Have not chat with you for a looooonnggg time. :wink:

That's a very pretty flower for a first timer. I did my first clay when I was in secondary two. I use small coke bottle to hold the ladies dress and added the head, hair, hands and other accessories using smaller cut clay and paste it on. Have to admit, didn't turn out well.

I bought the white clay last year for my kids too. Errr.....can't post the pictures here cause you all will die of :rotflmao: looking at it. But, it is fun thing to play and we all had fun.

Same as you. Interested to know any good books for children or website on clay making. Something to do during the June holidays.

EN,
So nice to chat with you again :D

At the moment only our roses look like roses, we tried to make bears and rabbits, they end up like some alien animals :oops:

smurf,
I bought it at an arts and crafts shop in Ngee Ann City, directly above Kinokuniya book shop. I forgot the name of the store, it is beside the Better Toy Store. Each packet costs $4.50.

Hi buds,
One pack can make more than 10 roses, each rose about 3cm by 4cm.

I cannot remember the name of the shop, only remember that it is right beside the Better Toy Store.

Not exactly for Air dry clay, but this is my one crazy impulse buy:
http://www.amazon.com/Making-Miniature- ... 1861082150

It shows you how to make minature food etc with polymer clay with amazing details - e.g. when you slice the clay lemon open you will really see the segments, the corn on cob will have kernels that are rounded and protruding. Don't ask me why I bought this book, but it is such armchair fun. :wink:
