Information
  • All the qualities of traditional clay but without the need for firing unless specifically required.
  • This clay is reinforced with synthetic fibres, which means a much lower shrinkage rate.
  • Drying times will vary and models can be kept workable under a damp cloth.
  • This versatile and economical clay can also be fired for use by more advanced potters.
  • Finished pieces can be coated in PVA glue or acrylic paint.

Modelling with Scola earthen nylon reinforced clay:

Scola Clay Air Drying Modelling Clay is available in terracotta clay and stone clay colours. Both dry somewhat lighter than the colour supplied. The nylon reinforcing synthetic fibres are a superb bonding agent, which reduces brittleness and also means that the clay need not be fired and can be painted and varnished. Therefore, it is an ideal modelling medium for both children and adults. For more durable models, the clay can be fired and glazes applied.

Instructions for use:

Always keep your Scola Clay in a closed airtight container. The original packaging is ideal if there are no holes in it, otherwise double pack. If the clay does dry out, break it into small pieces, put them into a polythene bag and sprinkle water on them and leave until soft and workable again.

Before starting, think carefully about making your model and make sausage or ball shapes to represent the object you have in mind, e.g. a cat might comprise a ball for the head, a sausage for the body and thin sausages for the legs. Bearing in mind the clay won’t hold up weight like legs to bodies, think about using wire, sticks (dowel) and other reinforcers to form your clay around – this also saves weight and clay.

Next join the bits up and make sure they are well moulded to each other, otherwise something is likely to fall off. Now you can start with surface features like noses, eyes etc. You can also add other materials like wood shavings, leaves, seeds and endless other things to enhance your model. The only limit is your imagination.
