After a hectic day, sleep becomes our companion to help us reboot the system before getting up and doing it all again. This clay model kit reminds us that even nature needs its sleep. The beautiful swan is joined in rest by an angel and surrounded by plants and flowers.
If you love the thought of getting hands-on with colourful clay, this is kit for you. It also makes a great gift for the creative person in your life. Play the video below.
The perfect introduction to clay modelling
Clay modelling is a wonderful hobby, but getting started can be daunting as it normally requires a lot of creativity plus trial and error. Starting with a kit is the perfect introduction as you have a model to work towards and the illustrated instructions make the process so much easier.
Everything you need to construct your Starry Dreams kit is supplied, apart from batteries. The only things you need to supply are your fingers and some patience.
Detailed video tutorials for each step are provided.

What could possibly go wrong?
The nature of clay modelling means there is certain amount of skill involved. Clear instructions are provided, but everyone's results will vary based on your skillset and experience. Before purchasing, watch some of the Sleeping Swan assembly tutorials to get a feel for the process. If you then decide this is too advanced, consider our miniature room kits which are simpler, but equally delightful.
What sort of clay is included?
Air-dried polymer clay that drys in 24 hours.
What's the quality of clay?
It's great to work with as it doesn't easily stick to your hands. It is food-grade and smells okay.
Do you need to remove the model from its dome to change the batteries?
No, the batteries are housed underneath the base.
Is everything supplied?
Everything you see in the finished model is supplied, apart from batteries.
What is the minimum recommend age to build Sleeping Swan?
14 - but builders of this age may need some help.
What is the maximum recommend age to build Sleeping Swan?
The kit is designed for all ages, so if you love hands-on activities then don’t let age stop you. It helps if you have steady hands and decent eyesight.
Is the finished kit fragile?
It dries to become quite firm, but it is still clay and therefore a little delicate. The supplied dome is made of borosilicate glass which is very strong.
