They clay is too hot to play with and mold right away. So place a damp cloth over the bowl and allow the clay to cool for 20-30 minutes. The damp cloth helps it stay nice and moiste so you don’t have any dry or cracked oranments later one.

Once cool, remove the clay from the bowl and knead it with clean, dry hands. You can add a little corn starch & knead it in if it is to sticky. As the clay is kneaded it will become smooth and pliable. Seriously, the texture of this air dry clay is amazing!
