Low Density - Monster Clay® has a lower density than the average oil-based clay. Each block of Monster Clay contains approximately 25% more material per pound than comparable products, making it one of the most cost effective choices in reusable clays.
High Elasticity - Another unique quality of Monster Clay is its high elasticity. This gives the clay an unusual ability to stretch like taffy when warmed and allows for the creation of unusual shapes that would otherwise be difficult to accomplish.
Smooth Composition - Monster Clay is a smooth body clay that can be easily worked when softened with mild heat. For surface smoothing, compatible solvents include 99% alcohol, Citrus Solve and Mineral Spirits which can be used to soften details and dissolve the clay surface.
Sulfur-Free - Monster Clay is sulfur-free and is therefore compatible with platinum based silicone compounds.
Firm at Average Room Temperature - Monster Clay remains firm at average room temperature to allow for precise detailing with fine sculpting tools.
Non-Polymerizing/Non-Oxidizing Formula - Unlike many oil-based clays, Monster Clay will not become brittle, dry out or lose plasticity over time. Monster Clay is formulated to retain its original composition indefinitely.
Melts Easily to a Pourable Consistency - Monster Clay can easily be melted and poured into any type of flexible mold material such as silicone, alginate, and urethane without the need for mold release. Monster Clay is re-meltable and will return to its original solid state upon cooling. It can be reused indefinitely without change in composition. Monster Clay is an ideal medium for lifecast reproduction where changes are needed prior to tooling and is perfect for rapid prototype duplication where additional detail and sculptural enhancements are desired.
Temperature Responsive - Monster Clay is easily softened with a light bulb or a gas style oven. All grades of Monster Clay melt at 135°F. The optimal temperature for melting and pouring is around 150°F. Never exceed 180°F. Be sure to periodically mix the clay during melting with careful temperature monitoring. Comfortable handling temperature should not exceed 115°F. To avoid component separation, be sure to completely mix the clay in its melted state, before pouring into your mold. Monster Clay is packaged in an ovenable tray that can withstand temperatures up to 200°F
INSIDER TIP: Beat the dreaded clay cleanup post demold by spraying down your sculpt with Lemon Pledge or Endust prior to molding! The pledge will bite into the gypsum and release from your sculpture, making it far easier to demold. Allow your sculpture to dry for an hour before making your mold. DON'T USE CRYSTAL CLEAR!
