Self-hardening clay

We carry a wide selection of self-hardening clay, which is a flexible, natural modelling clay that doesn't require firing. Due to its low weight, self-hardening clay is ideal for making small hanging ornaments on tree branches, Christmas trees etc., but can also be modelled into bowls, figures, tealight holders etc. just like traditional nature clay. Choose from self-hardening clay in a range of colours below.

How do you use self-hardening clay?

You may already be familiar with self-hardening clay in connection with annual Christmas decorations. The decoration clay that you typically find in supermarkets during the Christmas period is a type of self-hardening clay. But there are other forms of self-hardening clay in different colours, which you can find on this page. The advantage of self-hardening clay is that it is easy and straightforward to work with, and moulds into whatever you want. It also becomes light after drying, which makes it perfect to make hanging decorations out of.

Drying time for our modelling clays varies, but it will typically take 1-2 days. If you feel the clay and it is cold, it is because it's still releasing water. Feel it continuously and remember that, the thicker it is, the longer the drying time will be.

After drying, you can keep the clay in its natural colour or paint it with special paint, which you can find in our webshop.
