In response to the popularity of Sculpey, Super Sculpey was formulated. Users required a clay of greater tensile strength and Super Sculpey was the answer.
In color, Super Sculpey is a translucent pink-beige only. Like Sculpey, Super Sculpey is an easy to condition polymer requiring minimal hand kneading or rolling through a pasta machine to prepare for use. It features fine tooling and detailing characteristics, and does not “fill in” after tooling. If you opt to paint your cured piece, we recommend acrylic paint or the application of water based glaze prior to painting with oils. Paint should be applied in thin washes rather than thick coats for the best paint to clay bond. After curing, Super Sculpey bakes to a ceramic-like hardness and can be sanded to a fine smoothness.
Super Sculpey should be cured in a preheated 275 degree F (130 degree C) oven for 15 minutes per quarter inch of thickness. DO NOT MICROWAVE. For example, a piece of ” thickness would be cured for 30 minutes. The layering method is recommended for lager pieces of construction. (See Technical Section.)
Sculpey polymer clay products should remain fresh if properly stored in a cool place, away from heat and direct sunlight.
