Alkena is a natural modeling clay from Switzerland. This natural clay is made from combining beeswax and naturally colored clay from Earth. It’s softer than pure beeswax, yet requires more force to mold than plasticine-based modeling clay.
Adding beeswax to the pure clay in Alkena adds a warming quality to the clay. The beeswax warms up the more you work it. The beeswax also allows the modeling clay to stay pliable when exposed to air. This is good! It means the clay can be remolded again and again.
Alkena is also a partner with the Climate Protection Partnership. They are a climate neutral product.
Alkena is an ecofriendly modeling material, unlike petroleum-based plasticine. It maintains its shape at room temperature and can be worked on and cut with modeling tools. It’s considered by many to meet the highest artistic demands for modeling clay in smoothness, workability and shape retention at room temperature.
Keep in sealed bag or clay bucket after opened.
NOTE: The price difference between the red clay versus the yellow and brown is correct. These are dictated by the vendor and not us.
