Kids Pottery Wheel - Air Dry Clay
Air Dry clay is a fine grain clay that is great for kids to use. It’s fine grain which makes it easy to manipulate and form all sorts of different shapes and sizes. It does exactly what one would think and that is that when exposed to the air it dries. This process usually takes about 24 hours depending on the thickness of the clay.
The beauty about this clay is that no baking or kiln is required making it perfect to use in the home for all family members. It works perfectly well when using Kids Pottery Wheel and is usually the clay that is included when buying this toy.
Once dry you can keep adding layers depending on the finish you want. The clay is used solely for decorative purposed and will not withstand water or any other liquids. However, this should not put you off decorating with paints, glaze, tiles, beads and other ideas that spring to mind.
Most children love to get their hands messy. As with any pliable material there is an urge to squeeze, roll and shape into different moulds. This can be a very relaxing and enjoyable experience for Adults and Children alike. Once your child is familiar with the versatility and texture of clay you can introduce your child to a Pottery Wheel.
Confidence usually plays a big role in mastering any skill and it’s always worth putting in the ground work at the start to reap the benefits later. Throwing some clay on the wheel is a really enjoyable activity for most children and will produce much laughter along the way. If your child does not appear keen, it may be worth trying again in a few weeks or months.
