I like the Amaco Air Dry Clay. It's a little bit more expensive but I like
it better. You can cover the pieces with wet paper towels the night you
leave it out to dry and it will slow down the drying a little bit and help
with any cracking. What are you making with it and maybe I can help

Subject: [teacherartexchange] air dry clay or modeling dough
Does anyone have any luck with any air dry clay or
modeling dough? I need something that's soft to start
for little kids, but when it dries it does not crack.
I've tried Crayola air dry clay (cracks easily) and
Sargent (same thing). Am I just doing something
wrong? I don't care if the material dries to a rock
hard finish, I just don't want it to crack in half!
