EASY TO MOLD, EASY TO CLEAN: Resealable 2.5 lb plastic bucket of Air Dry Clay– this fine, natural earth clay dries to a hard solid. Easy to use with traditional modeling techniques. It’s also a snap to clean up.

IMPROVING ON TRADITION: Crayola Air-Dry Clay is smoother, finer, and less sticky than traditional clay, and it needs no oven or kiln. Use techniques like pinch, coil, slab, score-and-weld; make stamped impressions, beads; embedding found objects.

TACTILE ART: Let kids express themselves through sculpting, molding, and modeling. Kids love the 3D nature of clay & dough. Our Air-Dry Clay hardens on its own, and our Modeling Clay can be sculpted, squished, and reused without drying out.

SAFE AND NONTOXIC: Ideal for adults and kids, age 6 & up.

Hello! Does this have any gluten-containing ingredients? Is it safe for children with Celiac disease?

Asked by: Alli
Denny has the answer! At this time, Crayola Air-Dry Clay does not contain wheat or other grains known to be a source of gluten. However, a few of our products contain wheat (flour) as an ingredient. Multiple Crayola products are produced in the same manufacturing facilities and on the same machinery. While there is a slight chance of cross-contamination, the machinery used to manufacture Crayola products is cleaned between production runs in a manner that meets or exceeds all regulations. Be sure to contact us with any questions at 1-800-CRAYOLA.

How many ornaments can you make out of one tub of air dry clay

Asked by: Sall
Hi Sall, I thought you’d never ask! Well, it all depends on the size and thickness of the ornaments you are making. My pals tell me one pound of Air Dry Clay should equal about 1 measuring cup. This should help size up how much Air-Dry Clay your project will need! Happy crafting. - Denny

Can you rush the curing time?

Asked by: Lizabeth
Denny's got this! Crayola Air-Dry Clay generally takes 24 hours to dry to the touch; 72 hours to dry completely. My pack says it may help to speed up the process by leaving your piece in a well-ventilated room and turning your pieces periodically to ensure all sides are exposed to air. Hope this helps!
