Craft Smart® Natural Clay is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 122.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pieces break off... My grade 7 student used it to make Aztec suns. I was happy at first that it was air-dried. We tried to make the suns not too thick enough and not too big or fancy. However, the majority of the suns broke into dozens of small pieces and were unfixable. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clay-amazed Never having used "natural" clay, I was pleased with its ease of handling, and that it held its moisture. I was also pleased with its price and packaging. I would have appreciated more information on whether to fire it or air dry it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so much I love love love this clay, it is the only one i use and it works beautifully for me. Works exactly how you would want clay to work. Definitely not super strong once dry but a few coats of mod podge or resin will protect it really well. Easy to smooth together, works well for small details, and doesn’t crack while drying. Love it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Air dry clay This clay will dry hard i have to keep moisten it or it does crack some but for most part definitely worth the money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Natural If you are looking for natural clay, this is it and will act the same way. Dries fast in the sun.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Experience with the product. I have used this clay in two projects, and both have been unsuccessful due to the nature of this clay. There are three issues I found with the product, and I have worked with all types of clay, modelling and air dry being the two I most commonly use because I don't have space for a kiln and they are far too expensive for me. First, let me say DO NOT WET THE CLAY. Which is obviously difficult since it becomes dry and crumbly within two minutes of handling it. I used cardboard as a foundation for clay, and it curled three sheets of standard cardboard for my first project- a model of Mont Sainte Michelle. I was highly disappointed when I used 5 lbs of this clay as the base and woke up to a bent, curled-up pile of garbage on my desk. I decided to take the broken pieces and try to reuse them, this time with a single sheet of 4-inch tall cardboard (no curling, thankfully) but I came to my second problem with this clay. Flaking, cracking, and falling apart. I decided to hold off on making this until I returned to the previous clay that I used which was white Crayola clay which I have never had a single problem with. I then had a school project that I needed to finish and I figured I would use the rest of this which was lying around, this is where I experienced issue number two in its extreme and discovered a third issue with this product. It is a model of a Tralfamadorian from the book Slaughterhouse Five. I wasn't wanting to take any more supplies from my other projects which returned to Crayola Clay, so I decided to use this. Big mistake. Massive mistake. I had one week to finish the project and just barely hit the deadline as I spent three whole days trying to mend cracks in the statue, and the fingers of the hand kept falling off. Now we meet the final issue: The. Clay. Will. Not. Stick. To. Itself. When. Dry. I tell you what, I have dealt with minro flaking and cracks with other clays because of the structure I built, but never have I ever seen a product refuse to bind to its own self. I left the statue to dry on it's second day of work, which really just outlined the basic form. I came back for the second day of work, and surprisingly I didn't see much cracking, but I literally had to use glue to get wet clay to bond with dry clay and not just fall off of the figure. I have never had this happen to me before, and honestly, I was shocked. I should have listened to the reviews about cracking, whole chunks of my projects would just fall off, leaving me to wet the broken surface for an obscene amount of time while trying to reapply pieces with metal wire, plastic straws, and toothpicks to no avail. I finally just caved in and mixed this clay in with crayola clay, to no surprise I had no cracking or issues and I was able to justify throwing the rest of this product away at the end of the day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stinks!! I bought the white, 10lb box of clay. I havent used any yet because I can't get past the horrific formaldehyde smell. Remember science class, dissecting frogs! If you didnt mind that smell, then you wont mind this clay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First time clay sculptor here! I believe the clay works well for the price. Although this is my first time really suing modeling clay it worked out great for me. I didn't notice too much of a smell since I do a lot of art that carries smells such as paints,gesso, etc.
