Inside the Kit

Each expertly curated air dry clay DIY kit comes complete with everything you need to design + sculpt an original art piece, including:

  • Premium Air Dry clay for 1-2 people or 3-4 people (dries white/light gray)
  • Step-by-step instructions - learn how to make a pinch pot, hanging planter, or footed pot
  • Pro tools handmade in the USA from imported wood
  • Small smoothing sponge
  • Non-toxic, water-resistant paint in white, black, red, yellow, and blue
  • Vegan paintbrush with a bamboo handle
  • Plantable wildflower seed coaster

The Big Finish

Air dry clay requires up to 3 days of dry time (no kiln necessary - not waterproof). After your clay has fully dried, you can paint it using the included paints. Use the primary color paint set tp mix any color of the rainbow.

PRO TIP: Plan to use your air dry clay pot as a planter? We recommend displaying dried flowers or potting an air plant that requires minimal moisture + no dirt. You can also build your pottery to fit a glass jar inside to add water for live flowers - just make sure to make your piece 10% larger than the glass as clay shrinks as it dries.

Sculpting Sustainably

We're helping to create a world in which we don't need to sacrifice the environment in order to get crafty. We curate every kit with the planet in mind, from the locally-sourced clay and tools handmade in the USA to the naturally-based paints and eco-conscious packaging. We also seek to partner with suppliers who share our values by operating on 100% solar power and offsetting their energy usage with renewable energy credits. When you're finished sculpting, make sure to visit our sustainability page for details on recycling, reusing and disposing of all eco-friendly packaging elements.

Incredible unique experience!

It’s taken me too long to write about my incredible experience with this company. From the very beginning their founder Sam was incredibly welcoming and involved in the process of making my team event happen. Their cooperation and thoughtful responses made the process feel smooth and easy. My team loved getting to build something together while knowing it was good for our planet. Thank you so very much for this experience!
