Is this the right clay for MTS?

I just bought this clay from Michaels and was wondering if it's natural clay or of it's made out of polymer.

I bought the terra cotta one.

Any ideas?

i think since it is 'air dry' and 'great for kids and campers' it probably should not be trusted in an aquarium. usually such types of clay are polymer clays, and while this clay /can/ be fired up to Cone 04, it can survive without being fired. It seems to me a little bit like Model Magic. I have never used that kind of clay that. do you have any experience with it?

I dont know for sure, but I think with something like this, you are better safe than sorry.

Right now i still have it lying around. If it turns out to be the wrong type of clay, I can always let the kids use it lol.
