Shelf Life, Air Drying, Kilns, Clay Type, Coloring
Our clay is mid fire with a natural iron fleck. Once glazed and fired the natural speckles will come through. Firing temps are: Bisque: 1,000 °C / 1.832 °F Glaze: 1,100 °C / 2,012 - 2,228 °F
Inside each kit you will find detailed firing instructions. Take a pic of this and show the kiln when you're ready to get blazed!
Yup! Our clay is as versatile as an octopus in the kitchen. But srsly. We recommend getting your clay fired at your local kiln (cause it's the best feeling EVER when you can drink and eat from your crockd creations) If you've got 99 problems and finding a kiln becomes one, then just let your pieces air dry for two days before decorating them.
If you end up making something that you want to treasure forever then you have the option of taking it to a local studio to waterproof & seal your work. Consider Crockd the Cupid of clay studios and clay-makers - We want you guys to get connected without us taking any kind of commission on this. This means that every kiln sets their own prices. You can expect to pay roughly $10-$25 for the firing & glazing of four small creations.
We recommend that you use your clay within 3 months. After that you're taking a big ol' risk on what the clay might become.
Cracking question, mate. We're pumped that you want to experience the real deal and get your piece fired. Click on the "kilns" link in our navigation bar. Remember, you can leave your clay to dry out forever if you take ages to get to a studio.

Safety Instructions, Disposal
Please baby Jesus, no. You definitely can not eat the clay in it's raw form.
If you get it fired & glazed at your local kiln then yes. If you let it air dry then no :(
Honestly, it seems blasphemous to dispose of perfectly moist clay. If you do 'chuck it' then make sure it goes into regular waste disposal and not down your sink. K!?
