Category:Modelling clay, wax, etc

From The Brighton Toy and Model Index

For the purposes of these pages, "modelling" materials refer to materials designed for manipulating and moulding directly with the hands, and can be divided into three categories:

  • traditional clay and clay substitutes – these tend to dry out, and can be either allowed to dry out permanently, or can be kiln- or oven-fired to make them permanent
  • modelling wax, and
  • "non-drying" clay substitutes (typified by Plasticine), which typically combine a powder base with some sort of oil-based lubricant, along with other additives.

The popular 'Play-Doh is more difficult to categorise, as it's water-based, and isn't intended to dry out ... but does (which is why it's supplied in airtight tins or tubs). Because of this, Play-Doh isn't usually considered a serious modelling material (but is still a legitimate "toy").
