Creative Silk and Foam Clay Kids Crafts

Foam and silk clay is a great modelling medium for kids to enjoy and engage with. Perfect for getting the kids involved in modelling.

Foam Clay contains small polystyrene beads, which makes the texture simple and decorative to use for covering all sorts of items. The process is simple – roll small balls of Foam Clay, press them firmly onto the item and spread evenly with your fingers and leave to dry. When dry it has a firm and hard surface.

Silk Clay is self-hardening, pliable, soft and lightweight, but retains its soft and rubber-like texture when dry, also easy to use by kids. Silk clay can be used to cover items or used on it’s own as a Madeline clay.
