Kato Clay was created for artists, by an artist. One special feature of this firm, detail-holding clay is that it's colors do not shift when baked in the oven. It is durable and hardens quickly in the oven at 150 C/ 300 F. This is a great clay for creating figures, caning, jewelry, home décor and model making. When being used for canes, this clay does not "squish" when slicing in the same way that other clays do.
