Craft Smart® Natural Clay is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 99.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It dried perfectly fine for me, kiln not necessary Everyone is saying this clay needs to be fired but I made a couple pieces (bowls/ashtrays) last week and left them to air dry for 3-6 days, painted them, sealed them with clear acrylic sealer and they’re all nice, sturdy & functional. So you don’t really need a kiln.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It was covered in mold It could have been a great product. I don't know. I opened the box and saw the hunk of clay in the plastic was covered in mold on all sides. So I left it in the plastic and brought it right back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to work with This product was very easy to work with. I use it to make molds for plaster work. After the plaster is poured and has set for about an hour, I remove the clay and put it in a plastic bag for reuse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from THIS CLAY IS JUNK! This clay said it was AIR DRY. It had a disgusting odor as soon as I opened the box. I have worked with kiln fire clay before and this has a similar feel but smells really strange. There are no directions on how to dry or even stating that it needs to be fired in a kiln anywhere on the box. The clay cracks and breaks with the slightest touch. Even kiln dry clay doesnt crack like this. Its the worst clay I have ever used in my life. Hours of making fun projects just went to waste!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cracks and crumbles after drying... I've used this several times for several projects and no matter what things I used to ptevent cracking it always cracked and crumbled apart. This is the only brand of natural clay that has done this with my work. Such a shame because I love natural clay sculpting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far so good!! I've read a lot of bad reviews on here. So far I've been able make a few things. It's been awhile since I've worked with clay so I watched a bunch of how to tutorials first. Everyone here says that it cracks, you cant a cult with it, it dont air dry. But so far so good for me. When you are working with it your hands dry the clay out, keep a spray bottle close by. I dont have much experience with clay but I was very patient with it and made sure to keep it moist while working with it. Once I got the clay placed how I liked it I mostly worked with wet hands and with the tools to keep my hands from drying it out. I worked on my piece for over a week keeping it covered and damp. And finally have it air drying. I looked up how to seal it and for Natural clay it says to fire it. Paint it. Seal with PVC glue watered down a little to help with coating it (2 layers)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE ODOR Upon trying to use this clay, the odor was so overwhelming my grandchildren and I had to quit. My throat is sore

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great clay for kids activities The clay is great and my son loves it so much more than play-doh. It gives his projects more purpose, he learns patience and is more creative while using it. Following simple Instructions for air drying clay, we got no cracks and everything dried evenly. You have to let the clay “equalize” in a plastic bag for two days and then air dry. I suggest searching “the clay teacher” YouTube videos if you’re a beginner.
