If you have been a Delineate Your Dwelling reader for long, you know I love using Air Dry Clay. I have done numerous types of projects using clay. I’ve shown different creative clay techniques and even wrote a simple post about how to store air dry clay.
Today I am sharing 19 Air Dry Clay Projects that will instantly inspire you from some amazing talent across the internet! This post is clearly a HUGE favorite of yours because it’s been pinned on Pinterest well over 50,000 times!
Why is Air Dry Clay so amazing to work with?
I love Air Dry Modeling Clay because –
- It is so inexpensive.
- It is very easy to work with.
- It has tons of different uses.
- Does not require baking time to harden.
I think that’s basically a 4x win! Beyond that, if you use a white clay, you can paint it with acrylic paint OR spray paint, so color options are endless. Is that a 5th win??!
Can you buy Colored Air Dry Clay?
Yes, you can buy colored air dry clay. There are so many different colored options available now. I just discovered this set of gorgeous pre-mixed colorful air dry clays.
However, you can also get more traditional clay colors like white and terra cotta.
After seeing some these incredible projects below, I hope you are inspired to get to your local craft supply store and buy some clay!
What is the best kind of Air Dry Clay to use?
When starting out, I used Crayola Air Dry clay for all sorts of projects and it really worked well.
However, with time I have switched over to using either Sculpey white Air Dry clay or Das White Air Dry Clay. I think for the type of projects I typically do; home decor type projects, these are superior quality brands.
I love Sculpey and Das because they both dry a little more clean and are a purer white color. As opposed to the Crayola air dry clay which dries a light gray/white color.
With that being said, if you are planning to make fun crafts with your kiddos, Crayola is a great product to use.
