Storing of Clay
best to store hydrated clay or liquid clay in an opaque, ceramic,
stoneware, glass or PET plastic air tight, non-metallic container.
hydrated or liquid clay out of direct sunlight and at cool room
temperature. Liquid clay may be refrigerated or left on the cabinet,
depending on your preference.
other thing to consider when storing hydrated clay is that it's
important not to 'double dip' when scooping some hydrated clay out
of your storage container. Use a clean utensil every time you remove
some of the hydrated clay. Do not put your fingers or a dirty spoon
(make sure to use a plastic, rubber, or wooden spoon) back into the
clay for another dip. It just makes sense to do what you can to keep
the hydrated clay as pristine as possible in order to prevent it
from being contaminated in any way.
scrape the hydrated clay from the sides of the jar into the mass to
prevent it from drying around the edges. Hydrated clay has a
tendency to get thicker the longer it is kept. If your hydrated clay
does dry out, just add water and allow it to reabsorb the water
until you have achieved the desired consistency.
powder clay is easily stored in most places, but keep it out of
close proximity to gasoline, chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and
anything with a strong odor. Always keep the lid tightly secured on
any clay products. If stored properly, powdered clay will keep
and liquid clays, stored properly, will last for years. A good
indicator that your clay has gone bad is to smell it before using.
If it has a sour, perfume, or musty odor, you know it has been
compromised. It is not advisable to use in this condition.
