1188 clay is an air-drying clay developed using the highest quality materials available
Essentially a standard potters modelling clay with an addition of nylon fibres to provide
exceptional bonded strength when dry and unfired. These nylon reinforcing fibres are an
excellent bonding agent which reduces brittleness and means that the clay need not be
fired. It is an ideal modelling mediuim for both children and adults, and can be painted
and varnished once dry.
For more durable pieces, the clay can be fired and glazes applied. The firing range of
creative clay is 1000°c to 1280°c for the grey version and 1050°c for the red.
Suitable for schools that may not have a kiln, Earthstone air-drying clay produces an ideal opportunity for pupils to experiment and create with clay. Manufactured by mixing fibres with the most plastic materials available. ES 950 has unrivalled strength and plasticity. The super fine particle size allows model makers to produce very detailed forms. ES 950 can be decorated with acrylic paints and clear varnish with excellent results.
