What buyers are saying
It's okay to work with but buyers need to be aware of a couple things...First it stains. Majorly. The colors are not part of the clay so much as the clay has dyes put on it. It's terra cotta Colored or charcoal Colored or yellow Colored. Meaning the color will be Every where. On the work surfaces, your hands, your clothing, Every where. And it takes a lot of work to get the color off.For the hands, I recommend something mechanics use to remove the grease and grime from engines. Anything short of that won't even touch the stuff on your skin. As far as your clothing, forget about it. Make sure to wear clothing you don't care about because it Will be ruined even when you were careful. Even the white colored clay leaves marks. Now that's some trick. And go with plastic covers on the work surface. Newspaper will Not protect your table from the colors bleeding through.Secondly, for all the color the clay has, when it dries, it turns dull and rather unappealing. The charcoal that Looks black turns a lackluster grey. Like bad pencil lead. If you wanted bright yellow, don't count on it with this product. Again, even the white isn't exempt. It goes from a bright white to a sort of off ivory-beige-y color.Thirdly... larger projects get a bit crusty as they dry but for smaller things, it's okay.I made several things with it so far... A miniature hamburger that turned out okay. Not perfect but as a test subject and just goofing around, passable. The \"meat inch I had made with a mix of the terra cotta and charcoal and ended up with a muddy version of neither when it dried, despite looking right when I first mixed it. The \"onions inch were okay... Not white, more of a pale yellow but okay. The \"bun inch actually turned out pretty close to what I wanted.The miniature jack-o-lanterns I made were less than stellar but again, passable. I was trying for white and black. I ended up with ivory and sooty grey.The three inch tall \"candy skull inch though... It's still drying and already is showing signs of flaking. Despite being left alone and untouched in an environment where the air is still and stays a steady temperature and humidity.Lastly, this stuff is Not easy to work with. It Is easier than some of your average bake clays like Fimo but it's still tough. It had the flexibility and workability of old chewing gum minus the elasticity. Okay if you don't have arthritis or any trouble with your hands/joints. But I wouldn't recommend this to people with any kind of trouble or for younger easily tired children with smaller hands.On the flip side, if you really don't care about how bright it turns out, are careful with it so you don't end up with ruined clothing or furniture surfaces, and don't have any qualms about dealing with a tough product, it's tolerable.Keep your standards low, and this will work fine.Anything short of Meh expectations though and you'll be sorely disappointed.I know I was.
