Clay Ranges:

Earthen Airdrying Clay

Our airdry earthen clay has been reinforced with nylon fibres to make it strong. It is a similar product to Newclay air drying clay. The nylon reinforcing fibres are an excellent bonding agent which reduces brittleness and means that the airdry need not be fired and can be painted and varnished. So airdrying clay is an ideal modelling medium for both children and adults. It is available in pack sizes from handy 1kg packs of clay for smaller products, to bulk 12.5kg packs at great prices. From Italy, we also have the Giotto well known air dry clays called Das and Plastiroc. This is available in 500g and 1000g blocks in Grey and Terracotta. These are semi artificial sterilised clays.


Fired Pottery Clay

Quality Acrylic Hobby and Artist Paints image

Our fired pottery clay, which does not contain the nylon fibres is available in terracotta or grey and again from 1kg to 12.5kg packs. Designed for more durable models, this potters clay can be fired in a kiln and glazes applied to produce beautiful works of art.

 

 

Paper Clay

Paper clay is also a more recent phenomenon which Craftmill supplies as a powder ready for mixing. Paperclay is less inclined to shrink and crack when drying and it dries much lighter in weight than earthen airdry clay.

 

 

Polymer Clays and Staysoft Modelling Clay

CRAFTMILL'S TIPS FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT CLAY FOR THE JOB

  • If you have a kiln and want to make a lasting piece, fired potters clay is the best clay to use.
  • Many people do not have access to a kiln and for smaller pieces, polymer clay is a lasting alternative that can be baked in a domestic oven. Particularly great for jewellery and decorative items, this is a self-coloured clay, so no need to paint or glaze.
  • Airdrying clay is ideal for items which are for display purposes but will not be subject to extensive or rough handling. It is an ideal clay to make baby hand imprints in
  • Colourclay modelling clay is a soft clay designed to be constantly reworked and remodelled. Favoured by children and the animation industry, this clay is widely loved and easy to use by amateurs and experts alike.
