Description:

Whether using this clay as a beginner or you have advanced skills, this clay will work for you. Our CT 3 is like a white winter snow in the mountains; cool to the touch and ready to form into any ceramic project. We highly recommend CT 3 as a superlative low temperature plastic clay suitable for throwing and sculpture. Specifically formulated and tested for use with commercial glazes, this is an ideal choice for schools and craft centers. CT 3 is one of our best and most popular clays for potters at any skill level.

The new formula of CT3 has higher absorption then previously. This is due to the formula shifting away from the gray talc. It still has excellent glaze fit and should be sealed with a glaze for functional-ware. Unglazed pieces can be sealed with an outdoor paver/stone sealer, but will not be food safe.
