Frequently asked questions
🤷♀️ What type of clay is it?
Our clay is a mid fire hand-building clay. It can either be air dried, or fired at cone 6 temps at a kiln. Drying and firing instructions are included inside your kit!
👯♂️ How much clay is included?
All Crockd kits are designed to be shared. One kit includes enough clay to make over 4 things (2kgs). You'll get an instruction booklet with step-by-step instructions for over 10 vessels.
💧 How do I make it waterproof?
If you want to pour liquids into your creations then you need to have them fired at your local kiln. If you're happy for them to be 'water resistant' (not foodsafe) grab our paint kit. It comes with a sealant!
🌬 Can I air dry this clay?
indeedily doodily you can. Leave it to dry for 24 hours, then paint and seal it with our Acrylic paint set. If you're feeling super artsy, you can decorate it with our paint pens! We include a bunch of vessels perfect for air dry inside your kit.
🙏 How long will the clay last?
We wrap our clay in biodegradable plastic, so its lifespan is just over 4 months once it reaches your hot little hands. If you want to preserve your moist bags of crock, we recommend taking the clay brings out, wrapping them in cling wrap, then placing back inside their bags.
💫 How do I get the speckled look?
Our clay has a natural iron fleck! This means, once fired in a kiln, the speckles naturally come through. The hotter the kiln the more prominent the speckles. We're working on a video to show you how to speckle air dry clay too. Watch our socials for more!
🎨 Can I put acrylic paint in a kiln?
AB-SO-LUTE-LY NOT. If you're intending on getting your pieces fired and glazed at a kiln they need to be BUTT NAKED before they get there.
✍️ How do I re-soften my paint pens?
Your paint pens are just like brushes. Leftover paint can make them go hard. Just dip them in some water, and squiggle away!
💧 Are they waterproof?
Acrylic paints are water resistent, not waterproof. Kinda like your smart phone. If you immerse them in water for too long, they will return to their earthly state.
💃 Where do I input multi addresses?
Make sure you have selected 'multi addresses' for your group order. We will then send you an address template immediately post purchases.
🎤 Do I need a virtual host?
Our kits have been designed to be self paced for small and big groups. If you're hosting an event for 10 people or less you can totally do it with out us.
👨👨👧 Is this family friendly?
Crockd kits are the most inclusive hands on experiences. They're not bound to any genders, they don't play into any weird stereotypes, and they're kid friendly too!
