Product Details

One of the more popular Chavant clays, NSP (non sulfurated plasteline) was brought to market in 1993 as an alternative to sulfur based clays, which often inhibited many rubber mold making products, and had the potential to cause a burning sensation in the eyes of some users. With a higher percentage of wax components, NSP clays have been described as somewhat “tuffer” than their counterparts, allowing for detailed cut lines and fewer ragged edges. Available consistencies include: Soft, Medium, and Hard. NSP can be warmed and melted. This is most often accomplished with a crock pot or hot plate, depending on the artist’s preference. Note that as the clay warms it becomes sticky. Water, lighter fluid, and even turpentine can be used in these situations to smooth the clay.
