Chavant NSP

Chavant NSP is a globally well‑accepted sulphur‑free material used by the Special Effects and Fine Arts industries. It holds exceptional surface details and is somewhat waxier and tougher than other Chavant products.

The NSP product line consists of clays that contain higher percentage of wax components, making the clays somewhat “tougher”. Available in Soft, Medium or Hard, these clays have good adhesive qualities, flexibility and length.

Because they are “tougher”, NSP tends to accept cut detail lines very cleanly, with no ragged edges. The surface texture of NSP will be somewhat “grabby” when compared to other sulphur-based clays. Even the NSP Soft is rather firm by some people’s standards.

NSP can be softened with heat to be troweled, brushed, or liquified for casting into silicone moulds.

Storage Instructions
NSP is subject to surface oxidation. If the clay is in its original package it will have a long shelf life. If the clay is repeatedly heated and cooled, oxidation is accelerated. Sometimes this characteristic is beneficial in handling or mould making since the surface can become harder.

Chavant Fine Art Sculpting Clays

Each type of Chavant Fine Art Sculpting Clay, also known as Plasteline, is suitable for all educational levels and professional sculptors in the Fine Art, Special Effect, and Product Design industries.

All will meet requirements for detail retention and surface development. Blocks are each individually wrapped.

Why is sulphur used in some of the clays? Sulphur is a non‑toxic filler that enhances the surface texture of the clay.

Why is sulphur removed from this Chavant clay? Sulphur‑free formulas are generally easier to make silicone rubber moulds (as Sulphur is known to inhibit Platinum Silicone curing) and also have less odour.
