Play Clay Tips

If clay gets too dry, renew it with a few drops of water.

If clay is too sticky, knead in more flour, cornstarch or baking soda.

Cover extra clay with a damp cloth while working to prevent drying.

To color clay: either knead in food coloring or cake-decorating coloring paste.

Most clays can be colored with acrylic paints when dry
