White Critter Clay is CRAP!

Submitted by George on 10/3/05 at 12:55 PM. ( georoof@aol.com )

Figured since there were no fights going on, I'd start one.

I had bought a one pound block of this crap during the summer and thought I'd use it around the eyes of a deer. RIGHT! It's now at the bottom of a post hole I dug for my mailbox. What crap.

I guess the titanium that's used to color the clay leaves it very VERY grainy. If you wet it enough to smoothe it out, it's like goose crap and is just plain slimy. I'm used to letting the eyes set overnight and coming back the next day to adjust and the third day to final adjust them. Forgetaboutit. That crap dries overnight if you have temperature/humidity controls in your shop. It doesn't adhere well and will break off easily when dry. That was the only redeeming quality I found in it since I ripped the crap off and remolded the eyebrows when I found out how it worked.

IN MY OPINION, this stuff is just one big waste of money. I'll stick to what I know will work - REGULAR Critter Clay.

I bought some of that junk a number of years ago. Before I opened it, it was full of green mold. Don't know how it works because I trashed it before I got to try it. TR

Use it on fish

You guys are right...it sucks for doing eyes, etc. But I have found that it works pretty good for fish.

you're gonna have to do better than that to get an argument started. LOL I have to agree, that stuff is junk (and your mailbox is going to tip over LOL).

As far as I can see George , the white stuff wasn't designed for deer eye work . It works great for fish work .

It is

All Around Cr***, you will not get an argument on this one Georgy,lol

James, I don't like it either on fish...

Although it's stiffer and works "okay" in the tail section, it is too messy for my taste. It leaves white residue everywhere. I prefer mache'. It sets up quicker and is a lot cheaper. And even the mache' only goes in the head and some of the fin roots. Tail section gets precisely carved into the styrafoam...

God you've become such an expert Marty

I tried this white clay 10 years ago. Did not like it at all.
Amazing how it is still selling. I would never sell anything that I knew was faulty.

So why was it ME who posted this?

I clicked that little orange SEARCH icon there and typed in "white critter clay". There were only THIRTEEN entries on the crap and not a single one of them warned that it was a waste of money. You guys are slacking off.

You mean all critter clay isn't like that?

Critter clay white was all I ever tried, with the same results y'all are describing. Maybe I will get some regular and give it another chance.

Everyone Knows...

White Critter Clay sucks. Stick with the natural. They can't give that stuff away in Wisconsin.
