DAS is non-toxic, gluten-free, air-hardening, paper-based clay. Because of the fibers in the clay, forms created with it are sturdy and less likely than other clays to break once dry. There is also minimal shrinking, which means fewer cracks.
At first, it is not too malleable, but with a little water and manipulation, the clay becomes more pliable. You can add small amounts of water to extend the working time. It’s better to achieve fine details once the clay has dried by using a knife, carving tools, sandpaper, or even a drill
Paint and varnish are recommended to seal and strengthen your creation.
Drying time: it is recommended to allow 24 hours per centimeter to dry in shade.
