After baking, it can be sanded, drilled, carved and painted with water-based acrylic paints or Sculpey Glaze. After coating with a few layers of the glaze, you can use any paint you like to finish your piece. There are endless possibilities when creating with Sculpey. In the classroom Original Sculpey oven-bake clay offers an inexpensive way to let children explore their creativity. Available in 1.75 lb blocks.
Steps for baking Original Sculpey:
1. Find a suitable baking surface, a metal baking sheet works great!
2. Preheat your oven to 275F.
3. Bake for 15 minutes per 1/4 inch thickness.
4. Make sure you let your project cool before handling!
*It's recommended that you first bake a test batch to check your oven temperatures and cook time.
Pinch off a small ball of clay and shape it into a disc approximately 1/4 inch thick and 1/2 inch in diameter.
Bake the piece according to package directions, remove from the oven and check for any darkened areas. This means your oven is too hot, lower the temperature by 10F and retest!
