Make the Workspace Ready

Starting with a clean work space is key. Before laying out your supplies; you may want to cover your workspace with paper or a plastic cloth. Creatibles DIY Air Dry Clay Kit is intended for ages 6 and up, and we do suggest adult supervision.  

Pro Tip: The air clays need to remain tightly sealed in their containers when not in use. It is highly recommended that creations are completed in one session, otherwise they will dry out if not stored in an airtight container.

Choose Your Colors

First decide what you would like to create with your air dry clay, a rainbow might be a good starter sculpture for younger artists. Next, mix the clay with hands, this helps with motor skills too!

Pro Tip: Even though there are 12 colored clays to choose from, the soft pliable clay can easily blend into new delightful colors.

Create A Dazzling Artwork

Creating a rainbow is simple. First select 3 or 4 colors. Then knead and roll equal amounts of the clay colors into 3 individual snake-like shapes. Now lay one clay snake over the other in an arched shape. Trim the ends if the lengths of the color “snakes” aren’t the same length. Now, leave your rainbow as is, or mold a couple clay clouds by hand or with the included sculpting tools, and press them into the rainbow to frame the ends! Once you are happy with your clay creation, let it air dry for 24 hours.
