Does air dry clay break easily?

A con to building with air dry clay is how fragile it can be. Thin additions like legs, fingers, and ears will easily break off. To avoid cracking, keep students from adding a lot of water to the clay when they make slip. This can be done in the same manner as with regular clay.

Why does my air dry clay keep cracking?

Cracking is normal in air dry clays: it's caused by shrinkage because of the loss of the water inside the clay body. Cracking is often caused by sculpting over an armature or using a lot of water, either to mix the clay or to help it adhere onto a previous layer.

What happens when you bake air dry clay?

How do you bake air-dry clay? You don't, unless you want to risk cracking from drying "too fast." Air-dry clays harden from the outside in, and they also shrink while drying. If the outside areas shrink more quickly than the inside areas, cracking can occur.
