Chavant Professional Plasteline is the original sculpting clay formula developed by Mr. Claude Chavant in 1892. The basic formulation of Professional Plasteline has not changed very much during the past 100 years. It is a sulphur-based clay body that is pliable at room temperature. It is available in only one grade of firmness.  Fantastic sculptural works have been achieved using these products. Professional Plasteline is one of the softest clays Chavant produces. The sulphur filler gives this clay a silky feel appreciated by many artists. The clay has some amount of length but is susceptible to cracks when armatures move under the weight of the clay. Professional Plasteline is available in Gray-Green. Professional Plasteline is most commonly used by artists for the creation of sculpture and is often used to fill cracks in industrial patterns or to build dams when making splash molds.

Handling Tips: Professional Plasteline can be warmed to soften further. Using small amounts of water as a lubricant on the surface of the clay will help to attain a smooth surface.

Softening point: Professional Plasteline is generally used at room temperature but it is not uncommon to warm the clay to 110° F - 120° F to soften it even further.

Working Temp: Room Temperature

Cautions: Professional Plasteline contains sulphur, which may cause a burning sensation in the eyes of some users. Although not dangerous it may be uncomfortable. Over heating sulphur based clay will cause the sulphur to crystallize, which is easy to identify by the small, sand like granules which will be seen after the clay has been burned. Wash hands with soap and water after use.
