Fellow clay enthusiast, no matter who you are or where you're from, if you're into clay art and craft and on the hunt for some creative ideas, you've landed in the perfect spot.

I proudly dub myself a clay lover. Yep, you heard it right – I'm not shy about admitting that I'm head over heels for playing with clay.

Why, you ask? Well, it's simple – clay is like the superhero of art materials. It's so versatile that it lets me unleash my creativity in all its glory.

Whether it's air-dry clay or the oven-baked kind, it doesn't matter.

Clay is the Rockstar of art materials, available for specialist modelers and, of course, anyone and everyone looking to dive into the world of fun and creativity.

So, let's get our hands dirty and create some clay magic!

Why Clay Art and Craft?

Let's dive into the realms of art and craft. Art, the beautiful expression of human creativity and imagination, often takes shape in visual forms like painting or sculpture. On the other hand, craft is the delightful activity that involves skillful hands in the creation of tangible wonders.

Picture this: clay, the wondrous material that opens up a gateway for us to channel our creativity and imagination through our very own hands, shaping it into three-dimensional marvels. It's like bringing out the artist and child within us, all in one go.

In the realm of clay art, the possibilities are endless.

With clay-it-now, the journey becomes a joyful exploration into the fantastic world of crafting with clay.

There's a certain magic in witnessing a simple lump of clay transform into something extraordinary. And the best part? You can craft almost anything your heart desires with the versatile and moldable nature of clay.

So, let the adventure begin as you indulge in the playful joy of creating clay models with clay-it-now.

Unleash your inner artist, embrace your inner child, and watch the magic unfold as clay becomes your artistic playground.

What type of clay do you have?


Yes! That the first question for you to answer if you want to start crafting with clay. 

Do you have clay? Most of us may have experience playing with clay in primary school but if that was in the past, I mean decades ago, you may want to read my article about type of clay that you can buy.

If you are the type of person who doesn't mind to get your hand dirty and like to experiment a little bit, you may like making your own clay. 

If that so, visit my homemade clay recipe page. 

Bear in mind, you may get confuse with many types/ varieties of clay you can make by yourself though. Also, you may not be successful at first attempt. 

I would suggest you to make small amount of clay once you choose the recipe you like,  tweak it if necessary to suit your situation and make it your own.  

Anyway, if you are not sure about making homemade clay, please don't make the clay. Yeah..don't waste your time and money - just buy it! :)

Nowadays, there are many types and brands of clay in the market. It could be oven baked or air dry. To find out, visit this page: What clay to buy?

Choose the type of clay that you think will suit your craft project.

If you are new and has no idea what to make, tutorial in this website might be helpful for you. It's all FREE!

Let's get creative with clay-it-now:

Yes! like most of people, I start making animal figurine by following other artist and learn from the book. But, at the end, I've found my own way to interpret the object and create my own figurine style.
