Hey everyone! Yep, I know the review is a day late–blame life my friends. But better late than never as I usually say. Anyways, today I will be reviewing TNT Cosplay Supplies Cosplay Clay.
So let’s get started shall we?
Let’s start by talking about the feel of the clay. I believe this is a very important quality when working with Cosplay clay. It can’t be too sticky, or too tough. It has to be right in the middle so it’s not only easy to work with, but so you can tolerate working with it. TNT’s Cosplay clay definitely pulls off a really good middle ground texture. It’s not too stringy and sticky when you pull it out of the container and try to mold it. Neither is it so tough that you have to constantly spritz water on it. It’s the perfect middle ground in my opinion.
Another thing that I like about their Cosplay clay is the drying time on the clay. It takes about twenty-four to forty-eight hours to dry, but after it dries, you can really tell that it’s stable and dried. You don’t have to worry about any wet spots that might end up being detrimental to your creation later on and sink in or deform.
Lastly, it primes and contains paint very well. I started using their clay for a current project–my Countess Oogie Boogie, and so far, the paint is holding very well and looking incredibly vibrant. Not only that, but when I went to use Plasti-dip to prime it, after it dried it didn’t flake off and it was very stable and soaked in well.
As everything has a good side, there must be a bad side. And this Cosplay clay is no different. There is one main thing that I don’t like about this clay so far. (And I will update this as use this clay more seeing that I’ve only used it for one project so far.) I wasn’t impressed in the fact that even though it take one, to two days to dry it still dries out so to speak. what I mean by this is, if you don’t want lines in your clay piece make sure to keep some water near you so you can smooth it out. Else you’ll have a few bumps and cracks you may have to deal with.
The next thing that I’m not entirely a fan of, is that if you are making a rather thin piece with the clay, be very careful with it when it dries. Either that or find someway to be able to support it. I say this because when it dries, if it’s too thin, the piece can become rather fragile and prone to breaking if you drop it or put too much pressure on it.
The only Meh thing I have found so far with this Cosplay clay–and once again I shall say this. I will update with more info once I’ve used this clay a bit more. I’ve found that when working with TNT’s clay, you need to mold it in your hands for a little while before you can really get it to the shape you want. This clay can be quite the stubborn one. But once you play with it, roll it around and such, it works pretty well.
I’ll need to use this clay more to get a fully rounded opinion on this, and then I shall include more details about my findings. But so far I’m likeing how this clay is. It’s no surprise that this stuff is really good quality seeing that TNT Cosplay Supplies generally sells top notch items. I suggest this item.
