Re: [teacherartexchange] RE: Clay without a Kiln

Dear Ken,
I don't have a kiln either and have tried to use earthen-ware clay
and it is just too porous with its dry. So, I used Crayola White Air-
Dry Clay and I love it. You can use a little bit of water if it
cracks when you use it and it dries quickly as well.
