About this deal

Most Sculpey clay is baked at 275 °F (135 °C), but you should double check on your package to see what it recommends. com This is an unbelievably vast collection of links to polymer clay information painstakingly put together by a real enthusiast!

The manufacturer recommends that it needs approximately 15mins in an oven at 130C for each quarter-inch of thickness.It’s better to use a gel version such as Loctite Gel Contol or a higher end version such as Lisa Pavelka’s PolyBonder. On the other hand this means that very fine detail becomes difficult to ‘read’ properly while modelling.

An important advantage of this is that it takes impressions very cleanly; the best way of modelling with it is by ‘impressing’ and even things like fabrics or soft brushes can be used to texture the surface. In fact, many experienced modellers prefer the ‘long and slow’ method, baking Super Sculpey until it is nut-brown.

Pretty soon it will be soft enough and sticky enough to stay together when put through the pasta machine. Like modelling wax, Super Sculpey is not good at sticking to other things, even those with a rough or porous surface so if modelled in combination with other materials (for example if harder ‘found’ forms are embedded in the modelling) the joins have to be checked prior to mouldmaking.

If your fingers make indents in your clay or your figures bend easily, they are not firm enough and you should put them back in the oven for 2 minutes at a time until they are hard. In spite of this I haven’t noticed much of that rubbery ‘push back’ that I would expect (as the downside) from a material with this cohesive quality.Nothing yet, but I am determined to make my granddaughter posole and chile in a wooden bowl I already bought.
