Okay, I know this is a long shot, but has anyone used this clay (it is made by Crayola) along with white glue. I am planning out my son's class Valentine's Day Party and thought it would be cute if the kids sculpted hearts and put magnets on the back. This would have to be done while the clay was not dry yet. I am thinking I will just have to try it myself. I know that craft foam will not stick with regular white glue, and the two things feel similiar.....hmmm.

after it dries you can use glue to put the magnet on. or why not buy the magnet with the sticky on the back. that is what I did.

Model Magic takes 24 hours to dry, so the kids will not be able to leave with their creations since they'll still be squishable. Why not use polymer clay instead?

Epoxy works for just about everything, btw, but E6000 (which is cheap) is also fine since the bond between magnet and clay doesn't need to be super strong. Both will work with both Crayola and polymer clay.

if they are done earlier in the day, they should have started harden by the end of the day. They might have to be carefully will them going home. but I've not had any problem after a few hours of the model magic being hard enough to move it.
