Thank you rockin. Will be looking for it tomorrow. I know I am not going to be happy with the price. He-he.

Ahh, that makes sense - I've not used the air dry, I didn't even know they were doing it now - yes the oven bake is good, i've used it for years & it can last & last

Thank you rockinhippy. I did not bake the air-drying one as it is supposed to dry on its own. However, it is very fragile. I like the fact that there is no need to bake it but I am not impressed with the final result. So may be I should go for Fimo whih is for baking. Is the result good? will it last?

Did you not bake your Fimo in the oven?? if not you really need too, it dries much quicker than clay & is much more hardy, so would be much better for toy making than any clay

I am thinking of buying Daz air-drying clay. We used Fimo but it dries for too long if we make something in 3-d. Also it is difficult to attach parts. We often use water but it istoowet t sligtly not great. I would like somehing like plasticine so we could shape it wihout it drying too fast. Any suggestions? Many thanks! Sorry, i am experiencing problems with typing on my phone.
