Le Beau Touche is a sulfur free modeling clay that was introduced because of its exceptional smoothness and adhesive qualities. Le Beau Touche products are used by artists who are looking for product that will stick to any armature material. Le Beau Touche holds very good detail, carves and shapes easily, have tremendous flexibility and WILL NOT dry or crack. The Le Beau Touche is sensitive to heat variations – the smallest amount of friction, even from your hands, will soften the original Le Beau Touche. The clay will feel firm in the block form, but slicing off small amounts will make it manageable. This clay is commonly used by artists for the creation of sculptures or to build dams when making splash molds. Le Beau Touche can be warmed, but as it softens it becomes stickier. Using small amounts of citrus based solvents, lighter fluid, latex paint removers, turpentine or mineral spirits as a lubricant on the surface of the clay will help attain a smooth surface.

Unique qualities:

  • Has great adhesive qualities allowing it to stick to armature materials such as aluminum wire, aluminum foil, cardboard, foam or paper.

  • Will not oxidize and can be left out or heated and cooled repeatedly without significant changes to the product.

  • Has a working temperature up to 90 degrees. Heating over 90 degrees will cause the clay to get soft, sticky and the clay will begin to sweat and sag.
