No, properly baked clay, such as polymer clay or ceramic clay that has undergone the firing process, will not dissolve in water.
Characteristics of baked clay:
- Structural Integrity: Baking or firing clay at appropriate temperatures strengthens its molecular structure, making it resistant to dissolution.
- Water Resistance: Baked clay is generally non-porous and less susceptible to water absorption or dissolution.
- Longevity: Properly cured clay can maintain its form and integrity even when exposed to water or moisture.
However, it’s important to note that some types of air dry clay may be water-soluble and could dissolve if exposed to water.
