Gédéo Oven-bake Clay is 100% natural (pottery clay).
Ideal for modelling, sculpture and pottery.
- Clay 1.5 kg - White or Red
- Clay 5 kg - White or Red
- Clay 10 kg - White or Red
It keeps its vibrant colour after firing.
It works exceptionally well with the ceramic enamels on the market.
When the piece is finished, allow to air dry. We recommend firing in a kiln between 980 and 1050 ºC (1800-1925 ºF) and decorating with enamel.
It stays stable in its original packaging for at least 2 years. As long as the packaging is not damaged, the product will not perish.
After opening, wrap the remaining GédéoOven-bake Clay in plastic.
If the clay dries completely, it can berecycled by mixing and kneading with water.
Ifyour work is interrupted, cover the clay with plastic or a damp cloth
Do not store attemperatures below 0 ºC. If the product freezes, it loses its elasticity.
We recommend kneading Gédéo Oven-bake Claybefore starting work.
If the clay loses plasticity or breaks upduring use, simply slightly moisten your hands to refresh it.
If the clay dries completely, it can berefreshed with water.
Gédéo Oven-bake Clay is very easy to modelwith. Spatulas and other suitable modelling tools can also be used to help withmodelling. It can also be moulded (we recommend plaster moulds) and shaped on apotter's wheel.
To join 2 pieces of clay together, scorethe parts to be joined together with a spatula or needle tool and then jointhem with a brush, dampen with a slip (clay that has been mixed with water tocreate a liquid consistency).
To join clay at an angle, reinforce thejoint by spreading a small ball of clay over the angle and then flatten andsmooth the joint with a spatula.
Use a damp sponge to smooth and polishsurfaces.
Youcan use rigid or flexible supports to create hollow objects.
Once finished, allow the clay to dry evenly, avoiding direct heat sources and drafts. The clay is less likely to crack if it dries slowly.We recommend leaving the object to dry on a porous surface (paper, wood, porous ceramic, plaster or fabric). For larger pieces, we recommend slowing down the drying process by lightly covering the clay with plastic, leaving a slight opening to let out the moisture. If the object is completely flat (plate or tile), we recommend leaving it to dry under a flat weight. This will stop the clay changing shape or cracking from the inside if it dries quickly. The drying speed of Gédéo Oven-bake Clay depends on the size of the piece, its thickness and the drying environment (temperature and ventilation): Drying takes between 2 and 5 days at room temperature, During the drying process, Gédéo Oven-bake Clay contracts (drying shrinkage). The higher the water content of the clay, the more it will contract
Once dry, the object can be polished, tiled or perforated before decorating.
For best results, fire Gédéo clay in a kiln at the following temperatures: - 1000 ºC for red Oven-bake Clay
- 1050 ºC for white Oven-bake Clay
During firing, the dimensions of the object will reduce slightly: Shrinkage from cooking...
For larger pieces, we recommend slowly preheating between 150 ºC and 200 ºC with the oven door slightly open (not sealed). This will let out all the moisture from drying.
An acrylic resin-based product, it is ideal for waterproofing containers made from non-firing clay. Its yellow colour makes it easy to see areas which have not been coated. Transparent once dry. Drying time 10 hours.
Set of 4 tools for sculpting clay. The trimming tool is used for hollowing out and digging, the modelling tool for sculpting and engraving, the rib for smoothing and cutting, and the cutting wire for clean cuts.
Non-firing clay is a natural modelling clay that self-hardens in the air without firing, giving strong, durable and solid results. Available in 2 natural colours: white, red. Being clay, it has very good plasticity for modelling and its natural cellulose fibres allow it to dry without cracks, even in large pieces. It allows you to create very fine details when modelling.It can be modelled and shaped on a potter's wheel. It is easy to clean from hands and clothes using water. It is easy to remove any residue from surfaces and furniture using a damp cloth. Once dry, it can be painted or varnished. It can also be polished, tiled or perforated. After complete drying (4 to 5 days), it can be waterproofed to make non-food airtight containers.It stays stable in its original packaging for a minimum period of 2 years.
Untilit has dried, Gédéo non-firing clay can be reused and stored indefinitely in awet towel inside a tightly closed plastic bag.
Ifyour work is interrupted, cover the clay with plastic or a damp cloth.
Keepproduct in a cool environment and avoid high temperatures.
Once the object is finished, leave it to air dry.
The maximum hardness and strength is reached after 4 or 5 days at room temperature.
To speed up the drying process, objects can be exposed to a heat source. You can make the finished object harder by finishing the drying process in a domestic oven between 100 and 110 ºC.
When drying, non-firing clay contracts. The higher the water content of the clay, the more it will shrink during drying.
When you are making very large pieces or it is difficult to dry the pieces, we recommend modelling the clay after letting it dry slightly and homogenising it by kneading.
