The wood clay is an environmentally friendly product made from recycled wood waste from pencil production. The particles are much smaller and it feels softer than the cork clay (no longer available). The packaging is larger and the price is lower than the cork clay.
Fully dried in about 3 days at room temperature. The drying time can be accelerated by drying it in a warm oven at around 100 ° C without distorting it. The drying time depends on the size. This means that it is possible to work directly on the woodclay and then to dry it.
Another advantage of the Wood Clay is that after drying the shape can be updated with a file or sandpaper. This allows any deformation due to drying to be updated.
