Keep Metal Clay Hydrated: Cool Tools Clay Hydrator

Written by Diane Rein

The Cool Tools Clay Hydrator is a clay storage container specifically designed for adding moisture back into your clay. The innovative design allows metal clay to absorb the proper amount of moisture so clay remains hydrated and workable long after you have opened the package. Every metal clay artist has gone back into an old opened package and found their leftover clay too dry to work with. The Cool Tools Clay Hydrator eliminates this issue and can save you hundreds of dollars in lost clay.

Clay HydratorThe Cool Tools Clay Hydrator allows you to keep metal clay moist and workable for months-on-end. Keep your clay in a Cool Tools Clay Hydrator during the design process to make sure it doesn’t dry out. This can save you hundreds of dollars, and help make sure you never lose clay to dryness again. If you’ve been working with some clay and your hands have dried it out, place it in the hydrator, and in less than 30 minutes, you will begin to notice a difference in the workability. Never be limited again by dried out clay.

Only use distilled water in the Clay Hydrator because it does not have impurities, which prevents molding. When adding clay to the Hydrator, loosely wrap it in a small piece of plastic wrap. Do not wrap it too tightly, because this allows the moisture in the air to get into the clay. Never place clay directly on the sponge, or the water and the clay will make a mess and form slip.

Each sponge is sized perfectly for the Clay Hydrator, so everything fits together nicely. This bottom sponge should be soaked a little more thoroughly, allowing a small amount of water to rest in the bottom of the base. This water is slowly absorbed through the bottom sponge, and continuously pulled up into the air by the top sponge. During this process, your clay absorbs this much needed moisture and re-hydrates any metal clay. This innovative design creates the perfect environment to keep metal clay hydrated for several months.

Watch our Clay Hydrator Video and see how this innovative and inexpensive tool can save your clay, your time, and most important, your money.
