From £4.00

 Product Description

Das Modelling Material - Terracotta

Available in 500g and 1Kg

This is the solution for anyone that has enjoyed using Plasticine and similar materials but wanted the results to be more permanent so they can be kept. DAS is a moist feel modelling clay similar in respect to many others except that it air dries to a hard, durable matt finish enabling the modelled objects to be kept indefinitely.
The advantages of hardening a modelling material without the need for kiln firing mean that anyone can work with this. It is important to ensure that unused DAS is kept in an airtight container preferably wrapped in cling-film or foil so that it remains in a workable condition. A snap on lid container is perfect for this. DAS can be smoothed by wetting the fingers which will soften the surface.
However, be careful as too much water can result in the material becoming too soft or sludgy to work with. Although this is an air drying material, experience shows that you can allow about 2 to 3 hours to finish a project. For larger scale modelling some supporting wire or mesh is important. For painting dried models enamels or acrylics work best but simple craft paints can also be used. Packed and sealed in foil.
