Say, has anyone ever used air dry clay? I took a chance on buying some with some coupons at Michael's. There was very little information on the box, but I opened it a little and it smelled like real pottery clay, so I thought it would be worth a shot. I made about a dozen beads and let them air dry in front of my dehumidifier for 5 days and they are as hard as rocks. But the surface is pretty chalky, so they need some kind of sealant. I tried painting with acrylic and using Mod Podge, but I was able to peel the whole thing off in one piece like a skin. My experience with spray sealants is that they become gummy over time. Any ideas? My next idea is to cover them in liquid polymer clay and cure them.
