But if you wish a definitive success was later stick with the tried and genuine brands of clay you have 's using and do n't mix considerably various products which have diverging needs .

Q: Why does clay harden?
A: I ca n't actually find a clay by that names , while there is evidently a nature by that spelling that has occasionally been remanufactured in other kinds of clay , and other analogous exemplars ( to see for yourself , google the phrase Magik clay or Magik M2000 , but be persuaded , and then clicking on `` Search for Magik ... '' at top since both searching will default to the spelling Magic instead of Magik .   I would assumes that what you have is a true `` modelling clay '' ( in other words a plasticine-type clay -- those are oil-based but also have wax added ) though a numbers of producers of various kinds of clay ( also non-English-speaking ) call any clay a `` modelling clay '' since technologically any clay is feasible to `` modeled '' ( shaped ) .   If you are not convinced whether you have a genuine modeling/plasticine clay , you are able just put a piece of it in the furnace ( on a sheet of aluminum foil or paper , etc , at 275 F or so to see whether it melts or it hardens in the same shape . If it melts , it 's a genuine modelling clay and the add wax in these sorts of clay mean that it is able not been difficultened .  That type of clay will firm up when cooling , but definitely could never to utilise as a cellphone holder . It also ca n't truly be painted since it will withstand paintings , as well as the drier painting on it will crack with motion/bending/eetc since the clay himself will still be pliable beneath the hardened paintings .   I am not comprehending the parts you mention about the clay `` not sticking '' though or being `` ruptured . '' Most kinds of `` clay '' wo n't stick to hands truly , although some maybe it is a bit stickier than others before hardening .   Anyway , you are able read further information about genuine modelling clays as well as about different kinds of clay that you could be utilized in some of *my* responses to these preceding questions :  http : //answers.yahoo.com/question/index ? ...  https : //answers.yahoo.com/question/index ...  https : //answers.yahoo.com/question/index ...   Be conscious nevertheless that the different types of `` clay '' have various peculiarities , and that even various brands within every type of clay have various peculiarities ( re strength , capabilities to take fine details , ways they 're toughened , and more ) .   I would assumes that most `` cell telephone coverings '' are made with polymer clay because it 's the harshest even when thin ( with the exception of a few lines when those 're not in thick/rounded shapes : initial Sculpey , SuperSculpey flesh , Sculpey III , Craftsmart/Bakeshop ) .  You might get away with one of the stronger air-dry clays or possibly an epoxy clay though . And notification that the *embellishments* on polymer clay telephone instances is also possible other kinds of clay or another materials .  See below for numerous exemplars of polymer clay telephone instances , and air-dry telephone instances ** .
