Moldy Clay

Submitted by Rambo on 3/16/05 at 6:44 AM. ( )

I just opened up a newer bag (1 month old) of potters clay and noticed small mold spots. Is the clay safe to use? Should I be doing anything to it before using. Also, critter clay doing the same thing. This bag was never used.

I am using a bag that has the same thing. Shouldn't be a problem, though. Scrape the mold off of the surface and spray a little anti-fungicide (like bathroom cleaner) on the remainder and it should be fine. I have been using it with no noticeable problems.

I wonder if you got yours from Research too..?

I got some from McKinzie a couple weeks ago that was real wet and gummy. It's the first time I've ever got clay like that before from them. No mold on it yet though.

I purchased a 5lb. brick of critter clay - white & it has bloches of mold not real bad,usually I buy 1lb. which is the usuall texture of clay but the 5lb. was way softer like playdo.

I did purchase the two from McKenzie recently. Never had a problem in the past, and my work area is cool and dry. So you guys recommend hitting it with a disinfectant spray and still use it on deer modeling?

Thanks Again Dudes!
