Welcome to Creative Paperclay


Creative Paperclay® is a unique air hardening modeling material that requires no firing in a kiln or baking in an oven. It is clean, odorless and easy to use. It feels similar to an earthen clay; however, it contains no clay in it at all!

It can be sculpted, molded or shaped while it's moist and it accepts and retains fine details. It adheres easily to wood, canvas, and most surfaces without glue! Best of all Creative Paperclay® air dries hard. No hassling with a kiln. When dried, it's similar to a soft wood. It is very lightweight and durable. It may even be carved or sanded after it has hardened.
Dried Creative Paperclay® can be painted with any kind of paint; it's just like painting on wood or paper. If you prefer, water based paint may be kneaded into the Paperclay® while it's still moist. We recommend protecting your finished projects by sealing them with a coat of lacquer or varnish.

PearlTM air hardening modeling clay is an economy grade modeling material especially developed for schools. It is value priced and a great alternative to instant paper mache or Styrofoam based products.

It is made from all natural ingredients, is non-toxic and biodegradable (it carries the Art & Craft Materials Institute AP non-toxic label!).  Comes out of the package ready to use (no mixing or kneading required) in a clean white color. Its very soft and fine texture can be sculpted, shaped or molded very easily while moist. After it air dries, it becomes very hard, not spongy. It can be painted or colored with tempera, acrylics or markers making it ideal for kids crafts or classroom projects! 

DelightTM is an exciting new modeling medium. It is pure white in color and extremely soft and easy to shape or mold. This non-toxic material is super clean to work with and picks up details beautifully.

DelightTM holds its form while shaping and then air hardens to create an extraordinarily lightweight (about ½ the weight of our Creative Paperclay® by volume) and durable finished piece. Water base paint can be kneaded into DelightTM very easily and without mess to make an infinite range of colors with which to work. Of course, it can be colored with any kind of paint after it's dried.
