Could you use bone clay to make buttons?

- Asked by dian on 11-Apr-14

This product may be used to form buttons, especially for decorative or craft purposes; however, the thickness and diameter may affect the durability. If too thin and wide, the buttons may be brittle. Another option may be casting buttons using Alumilite's Quick-Set Mold Rubber Kit and Casting Resin.

What are the dimensions of this product?

- Asked by Diane Rutigliano on 10-May-13

The length, width and height will vary as the clay is cut from a large block of clay and is measured by weight.

- Answered by MisterArt on 16-May-13

What is a good clay, self-hardening or oven-hardening, that I can use to make dolls?

- Asked by Cathy on 18-Mar-13

The Boneware Self-Hardening Clay is great for sculpting and would work for your project. Also, the Living Doll Modeling Compound by Sculpey would be great for doll-making. This is an oven bake clay and is available in 3 skin tones: light, beige, and brown.

- Answered by MisterArt on 20-Mar-13

Is this clay waterproof once dry?

- Asked by Margarita on 06-Sep-12

Once dry, it is waterproof and can be painted with oil, enamel, or tempera.

Rated by: Ryan O, in Macungie, PA
I use this clay for decorative bird sculpture and it is amazing. It definitely dries rock hard, and has a smooth consistency not like a lot of other air dry clays that have a good deal of "grit" in them. It holds details very, very well and is easy to form and carve. Just keep it moist with wet paper towels and in a ziploc bag until done and you will be very happy.
Rated by: Judith R. in New York, NY
This clay is perfect for sculpture, it's easy to handle and the delivery of the clay was fast and easy to order. I will definitely order clay from you again because the process was easy.

I teach kids ages 6-14, & all were able to easily work with this clay to make some great projects from candle holders with star & moon cut-outs to draped pieces in the shape of fish & leaves!
