Rigid Wrap and CelluClay Quik-Sculpting Kit – Review

I love to incorporate hands on activities and crafts into our school day. I also love it when the kids can just be let loose to get creative as well. We had the chance to review the Rigid Wrap and CelluClay Quik-Sculpting Kit by ACTÍVA ProductsThis product will come in handy for projects that you can use in your homeschool as well as any crafts ideas you may have. If you would like to see some of the many things you can do with their products you can download a FREE ebook of ACTÍVA Favorite Sculpture Kids Crafts to check out for yourself. 

Let me explain what the Rigid Warp and CelluClay Quik-Scuplting Kit is. It is a paper mache kit that takes it to all new levels. Rigid Warp plaster cloth. You can cut them into different lengths for your projects. You dip them in water and you lay your pieces the way you need to. You can even shape them too. Once you lay your piece the way you want it, you then smooth over it so you can see your holes. Your basically spreading the plaster on it around. It really is very easy to work with. We will definitely be using them again for other future projects. Then you have the CelluClay inside the package. You mix that up in a plastic bag with water. I am not sure if I did that write because I don’t feel that ours turned out exactly the way it should have. Maybe to much water. Ours was a little more lumpy. However it is suppose to be like clay and dough. We could form and it does take a full 24 hours to dry. Inside this kit you also get directions to 12 different projects. Two of the ones I thought were pretty awesome my daughter didn’t want to do. One was a Volcano and the other was a Egyptian Sarcophagus. She doesn’t realize it but we will be doing those projects a little later down the road!!

Oh and if you visit the website it does have some tips on the products as well. The one thing I find exciting is that after the CelluClay is mixed you can store it in the fridge for a long period of time and it still will be good. So we can still make more projects out of the left overs.

The Free Ebook is really nice because the projects are in color and all the directions and things you may need for traceable are right there. I highly suggest taking a peek because it surely will catch your interest.

How We Used This: 

My daughter and I did three different projects. We did the peppermint bowl from the kit. We also did the butterfly from the kit. She made her own heart out of the CelluClay. Just doing some of the things we did, I can tell you the ideas for uses could just run wild on all the things you could make. We are already thinking of our next project!

For the Peppermint Bowl we used a bowl with saran wrap to cover it. We used the Rigid Wrap to make the shape of the bowl. I must say that the RigidWrap really does dry quick. We did let it sit over night only because I didn’t want to take the chance of it not setting. The saran wrap was easy to remove from the dried Rigid Wrap. It helped shape the bowl. Then we used the CelluClay to shape our peppermints and stick them to the bowl. I did have to let those dry for 24 hours before we painted. We had to do this in steps but it really was fun.

We also did the Butterfly from project list. We cut out our butterfly from cardboard. We used the rigid wraps to cover the cardboard. We had to be quick as the cardboard was getting soggy. I should have covered it with saran wrap. However it kept its shape once dried. Here we did shape the rigid wraps to form the body. I love that you can shape them how you want. When it dries you get what you shaped. Once dry we painted the butterfly.

My daughter made a heart from the CelluClay. We cut out the cardboard and this time we put down non stick parchment paper over the top of the cardboard and she shaped her heart. We had to let that dry. We actually did the heart last night. So it wasn’t dry enough yet to paint.

My daughter really enjoyed the projects from this kit. One thing she did mention was that she liked the feel of the CelluClay. I think it felt different to her then most things of dough and clay we use. So that was a positive. We aren’t sure we mixed it right but we did have fun with it. We plan on doing more projects with it as well. From now on when we do paper mache of any type we will be using the Rigid Warps. No more paper and glue for us!! You can work so much easier with the Rigid Wraps.
