Sculpting Clay
Sold by Special Effect Supply

There are two basic kinds of sculpting clay, Oil Based Clay and Water Based Clay. All of the oil based clay that we sell is sulfur-free.



Oil Based Clay

Oil based clay is clay mixed with some kind of oil or combinations of oil. It will not dry out, but it will oxidize over time and become difficult to work with. Sometimes, you can manipulate the consistency of the clay by mixing it with petroleum jelly, but this is difficult. Some oil based clays, like Plastina, contain sulfur and can't be used with silicone molding compounds. Plastina can be sealed with a sealer or shellac, but any coating of this type will take away some of the details of your sculpture. We recommend and use our Industrial Tooling clay, which is easy to work and won't react with silicones. Some oil based clays can be melted and poured into a mold. Preheating oil based clay will soften it and make it easy to work with.

Klean clay has gone the way of the Earth. The old gentleman who made it used up the last of his chemicals and retired. He did, however, sell his formulas and equipment to a competitor who has taken up the cause. The replacement clay is as follows:

Water Based Clay

Water based clay is simply that, clay mixed with water. It is usually very inexpensive, but it must be kept covered or it will dry out. Water based clay is easy to work with when it has just the right amount of water, which is easy to manipulate. It is easy to remove from a mold with a water sprayer. Its disadvantages are equal to its advantages; it is often hard to control. If a project goes into many days, it will sag and separate easily. This clay cannot be used with plastics, epoxies or polymers.


Moist Clay

This is a natural gray clay that fires to a light buff. Clay Flour and Moist Clay are natural, gray, water based pottery clays. They are exceptionally smooth, pliable and suitable for hand modeling and wheel throwing. Cones 5-10.

Mexican Pottery Clay

Mexican Pottery Clay will shrink during drying, so it is best to hollow out bulky sculptures or wrap a slab of clay around a loose crumpled paper armature before modeling.

You should allow the finished piece to dry slowly and evenly on all sides at room temperature away from heat until it hardens. When the piece is completely dry, you can decorate it with: AMACO Rub 'n Buff, school paints, temperas, acrylics or liquid crayons.

After decorating, it is a good idea to coat the finished piece with shellac or varnish to seal it and make it water resistant.
