No ordinary clay. 3D clay is
a high-tech modeling compound that is super light-weight, soft and non-sticky.
Bounce it, stretch it and mould it. Get creative and make some groovy artwork.
When exposed to air the clay dries out within a few days: fixing the shape of
your artwork without the need of a kiln. Once dry it doesn’t become brittle and
will not break easily. To reuse it, put the clay back in the container before it
dries and cap it. Colours vary.

putty, 3D clay is another example of a strange type of matter that doesn’t
fit neatly into the three common states of matter: solid, liquid and gas. So
what is it!? Because it doesn’t follow Newton’s laws, 3D clay belongs in a broad
group called non-Newtonian matter. Other examples of strange non-Newtonian
matter are jelly, blood, toothpaste, ink and glue.
three common states of matter – solid, liquid and gas – and their
matter and why this weird type of matter doesn’t fit into the three common
polymers: polymers that have silicon or phosphorous backbones instead of
both non-Newtonian matter, there is a big difference between 3D clay and
putty. Putty is moist and tacky and will not dry out when exposed to air.
