The modeling clay is a customizable miscellaneous furniture item in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. As a miscellaneous item, it can be placed on either the ground or on the surfaces of tables and other similar furniture items that have surfaces for items.

The modeling clay can be obtained from crafting, which requires clay. The recipe for this item can be obtained from cranky villagers, either when they are crafting in their house, or when the player receives their message bottle from the beach. The item's creation can be customized either by using 1 customization kit or by Cyrus at Harv's Island for  1,000 Bells.

This item appears as a furniture item in the homes of Carrie, Filbert, Hamlet, and Stitches. As a result, this item has a chance to be purchasable by the player if they were invited by any of the preceding villagers.

In Happy Home Paradise, this item is unlocked for use in designing when doing a vacation home request for Billy, Bones, Bree, Carrie, Dizzy, Eunice, Hippeux, Jeremiah, Marcie, Stitches, and Tucker. The item can also be unlocked when tasked by Lottie to design the school.

In the designing process of Happy Home Paradise, Billy and Hippeux require this item to be placed in or outside their vacation home.
