Beautiful and Easy Air-Dried Clay Projects

If you are a true DIY-ers then you must have heard about Air-dried clay. When you want to give something personal and handmade, these easy air-dried clay projects are all you need.

Air drying clay is the ultimate versatile modeling material for anyone wanting to achieve a high-quality finish without firing up an expensive kiln.

You can create hanging decorations with air dry clay by cutting out shapes using old cookie cutters or molds. Alternatively, use wires and polystyrene shapes to help you structure your self-hardening clay creations.

You can also find all the supplies to make this project very easily such as at craft stores nearby your place or Amazon where you can get your supplies directly to your house.

Now, what you need to pay attention to is how much you need to buy. If you buy too much, the rest will become hardened by time (because it’s air-dried clay) which will become a waste.

Down below I have listed projects where you can see how many you need to buy so it won’t become a waste.
