RE: Wet-set clay

I used wet set clay all the time before I moved to a school with a kiln
and it worked great. I wouldn't recommend it for very detailed and
small pieces, but pinch pots should work well.
You have to use cold water for soaking and be sure not to soak it for
more than 6 hours. I only used acrylic paints-- tempera flaked off.

Good luck!

My kindergarten class is working with Crayola wet-set clay. Has anyone
worked with this type of clay before? How does the wet-set part work
really? We are hoping to paint them after they are set. (they made
pinch pots)
