I Need Help w/clay

Hi,
    I need help with finding a clay that my students can work with easily,
 that will harden itself, can be painted, and isn't too messey to work
with. Am I asking the impossible.
    This is a fifth grade art project. Please help.

                                           Thanks,
                                                     Greg

Sounds like you're looking for air-hardening clay, right?  Do you have
access to arts & crafts supply catalogs like Nasco,*** Blick, Sax,
etc.?  They have air-hardening modeling clays which I think you can
paint.  E-mail me if you need 800 numbers, all my catalogs are buried!!
In what, I will not say.....

I dont know if you have it where you are, but over here in the uk we have
stuff called DAS - it air hardens (in about a week from past experience),
is available in white and teracotta, and the white, certainly is okay to
paint.

Hope this is helpful

Try Model Magic. I think Crayola makes it. You can buy it at Kmart or in
larger quantities through mail order.  It's very light weight and easy to
work with.
