IOD Air Dry Clay by Iron Orchid Designs
IOD Air Dry Clay is a beautifully soft and pliable air dry clay, which works beautifully with our Decor Moulds made by IOD.
Air dry clay, also knows as paper clay is an air dry medium and one of our favorites. This easy to use white air dry clay helps make solid forms without the need for baking in an oven or kiln. A must have for making decorative frames, creative art, jewelry, crafts, decor projects and more!
Like most paper pulp based air dry clays, some shrinking, warping, and cracking is inherent. We like these qualities for a distressed, authentically vintage look. Our favorite way to apply moulded pieces is to remove them from the mould while still moist, and adhere to the surface with the appropriate glue so it conforms well. For vertical surfaces, use a piece of low tack tape to hold it in place so it doesn’t slide.
Can you use air dry clay in molds?
We love using this clay with our decor moulds made by IOD.
How do you keep air dry clay from sticking to mold?
We find that most of the time a release is not necessary and the casting will come out without the use of a release, however, if you are having trouble with the material sticking (more common with clays than resins), a light dusting of simple cornstarch or arrowroot is a great choice.
How do you store air dry clay?
Keep sealed while not in use. Store in cool area.
