Polyform® Model Air® Porcelain Clay, 1.1lb is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from A professional artist and not a fan At my local Micheal's I was drawn in by the promises of no cracking, translucent look, and porcelain finish. As soon as I opened the package it was instant problems. The clay itself had somehow half fused with the plastic wrap around it in the package. I tried to gently pull it away but the plastic just stretched with it and tore. I had to waste some clay picking tiny bits of plastic wrap out. Also its VERY soft. When you pull a chunk off its stringy like a warm piece of mozzarella. Which is fine because you can just roll the strings back into it....but the softness has other issues. I made a few sample pieces. **A thin curl and a thicker spiral curl: I had to lay them flat to prevent drooping. As they began to dry they lost a bit of the curve they had. **A very thin single petal: It got very stuck to my plastic cutting pad that covers my studio desk and I had to remake it. This isn't surprising because its a polymer and those tend to fuse to other random plastics. Lesson learned. Once I remade it just holding it delicately between my fingers caused it to droop. I gave up and layed it as a flat thin piece and it had already visibly warped while drying within a half hour. **An entire flower: Oh heck no. It was a real pain in the butt trying to stick thumbnail sized petals to each other on a base. They all just drooped all over each other and it felt like it was melting in my hands as I made it. I waited for it to dry just a touch to push the petals into place, but they just bent back to where they were. **A 1/4 inch thick piece: stuck to my rolling pin a little, but otherwise fine. I left finger prints on it to see how well they fade as it dries **A piece with a glass bead embedded and little detail around the edges: If the clay is drying, and it dries kinda fast, it will "heal" a bit and prevent fine detail. I did multiple depths of details to see how they hold up. **A piece I pressed cotton lace into: It ruined the lace. It was just too soft and got between the fibers. This means the clay also tore and ligtle stringy bits came off as I pulled the lace away. **A palm sized 1/4 inch thick piece smoothed: It only gave me one shot at smoothing and it didn't last long. I used a very light spritz of water and worked quickly, but it absorbed the water fast and caused even finer stringy cheesiness to stick to my finger as I pulled it away. I waited a minute and did a second light spritz to smooth the weird stringy patches and it just got really pasty. **A simple thick ring: easy simple shape. Will be using it to test weight capacity once its definitely dry. **Rolled out and cut with metal cookie cutter: one stuck in the cutter and just didnt want to come out without warping. Another stayed on the foil I layed down but had melted back a bit into the rest causing strings. **Pressed into prepared mold: there is no removing them while its still soft. I'm leaving one for 24hrs before removing to see how it does. If it can turn out ok, molds are what I'll use it for since its so soft. Surfaces it got stuck to: paper, plastic bag, self healing cutting pad, a little bit to foil when left while soft, a little to a tin tray while drying. All in all, I kinda hate it personally. Maybe I just got a bad batch? Maybe my naturally cold hands and 70 degree F home are too warm for it? Who knows. If it manages to hold up once dry I may use it for simple little things like eyes or pressing into molds. Or maybe I can roll it thin, let it dry, and then cut shapes out.... basically the second star I gave it is my hope I can find use for it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst “cold porcelain” This product is the worse, it is very dry and can not be modelening. Very very bad product. Waist of money !

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not porcelain Never Dried hard. Dried more like a softer plastic rather than porcelain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don’t blame the clay just because you can’t sculpt This clay is great. It does not come pigmented and is translucent when dry. This gives you the option to add your own piggment by mixing in paint or powders. I add pigments and use it sometimes to add-to or repair sculptures and you cannot even tell they’ve been repaired. It is akin to an air-drying polymer clay, therefore it does have plastic qualities ie it won’t shatter, it’s also waterproof unlike paper clays!! It sticks to hardened clay well with a little water therefore you can build your pieces up. Yes you can make figurines out of it, you would need to make an armature first just like any other clay. It sands well too. Definitely worth the price. Not every clay is perfect for every job, but this clay has a lot of great attributes and I’m glad they make it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Confused by the negative reviews I have worked with four different air clays and paper clay, and this Porcelain Clay is by far the BEST! It dries quickly and doesn't crack or crumble like every single one of the others. The other air clays have their purpose and pros, but for smooth, professional looking clay that clients want to look like they spent a fortune to get, this is the best of them all. I am confused by the people saying it doesn't dry well. Not only does it have the best drying time, it is the only one of them all that doesn't shrink, crack, flake, or show flaws when completely dry. It isn't like "Elmer's Glue," either. That was a weird thing to read. It isn't bendable after it is completely dry, either. It retains its shape exceptionally well, especially when compared to paper clay. I think some people expected to be working with Play-Doh and don't understand that real sculpting with real clay takes work. Nothing is going to look like the pictures on a package straight after drying because those are completed images. This clay can be painted and varnished/lacquered to whatever finish is desired. This isn't real porcelain, so why would you expect a real porcelain finish? It is porcelain CLAY. I create sculptures of wildlife, including flowers, and everyone who buys from me does so because of how realistic they look. I use acrylic paint and finish it off with either matte or gloss lacquer spray. It doesn't soak into the clay or lose its brilliance, and it dries very fast over this clay while painting on paper clay slows down drying time. Buy yourself the proper tools, allow time to completely dry, FOLLOW DIRECTIONS, understand that this is clay for adults - not a child's material, and you'll find that this will be one of your very favorite products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this! Soft and pliable. Love the snow white color. Easy to work with. I am very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, easy to work with The clay is very smooth and pliable. It's easy to add pieces together and smooth away the seams. Adheres to itself remarkably well. Dries to a pretty translucent white finish, which made lovely ice/snow terrain for my project.
