This medium is simple and fun to use and you can take your piece home that same day as no kilns are necessary! It will last outdoors in all weather as it has passed freeze/thaw testing and is incredibly strong!

Class includes tutoring and all materials required, but please bring an apron or wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little dusty, and bring a box and some plastic bags to transport your work home.

Tea and coffee will be provided, but please bring your own packed lunch.

About Pal Tiya

What started out as a project to enable an artist to create permanent outdoor pieces has morphed into a global business.

Our flagship product, Pal Tiya Premium, is a sculpting material that has the “working feel” close to that of a fine clay. It cures to stone-hardness without firing, is very strong, and is designed for extreme outdoor conditions. Due to its strength when dry, the material only needs a basic armature to sculpt over, even at large (seven foot tall) scale.

It removes most of the persistent barriers students have to traditional sculpting. ​

To use, you just add water, mix it, knead it, sculpt it.

It's very strong. This means your sculptures don't have to be solid. You can sculpt it over a 'crushed tinfoil core'. Each batch of Pal Tiya Premium has a two hour working time. You can continuously add to your sculptures over time as you need. Each additional layer permanently bonding to the last one. Pal Tiya Premium 'cures' somewhat like cement, and is specifically designed to be permanent for the outdoors.
Pal Tiya Premium cures over several days to a stone-like hardness, as long as it is kept damp to wet. By day two you can carve it, grind it and chisel it. By day six it is nearing its full cure (70%). ​The longer you let it cure the stronger it is. By day 28 you will have 100% cure which is between 7 and 13 times stronger than cement.

What People Have to say About Pal Tiya Premium:

ELIJAH EVENSON; An experienced clay sculptor's first impressions of using Pal Tiya Premium

"Compares to the high end water based clays...It's very elastic, lots of flex, it doesn't break or shatter." After a day of use " ...the clay was fantastic, very immediate, exciting, kind of exhilarating."


Sandie Denton, Tennessee, USA

"I absolutely loved working with it. I am not a sculptor and other than playing with some clay in a high school art class this is the first time I've done anything like this. I love how easy it was to go back in the second or third day and add to it. I think Pal Tiya Premium is an absolutely brilliant product. I am looking forward to making many more garden sculptures!"
