Choosing the right clay for your project is crucial for achieving the best results possible. If you've decided you want to use air-dry clay for your next modeling or sculpting craft, you'll need to choose between our Sculpey Air-Dry™ Porcelain Clay and standard Sculpey Air-Dry™.
The primary differences between the two air-dry clays are their consistencies. The porcelain clay is smooth and translucent and is used for things like flowers, dolls, and higher-end projects whereas other air dry clay is used for basic modeling. Traditional air-dry clay has a fibrous, porous texture that's slightly rougher when dried. Porcelain air-dry clay has a smooth, porcelain-like finish when it dries, which is how it got its name.
Air-dry porcelain clay produces a harder, stronger and more durable model when dried, which can be ideal for a number of projects. If you don't add color to the clay, the final product dries slightly translucent, with a look that is very similar to genuine porcelain. Our Sculpey Air-Dry™ clay dries to an opaque color of either white, terra cotta or whatever colors you've added.
