Super Sculpey is a very unique polymer clay, much loved by artists, dollmakers and animation studios around the world. With a ceramic-like feel, Super Sculpey is available in a semi-transparent beige that, once baked, captures the glow of real skin. It can also be mixed with Premo or Sculpey III to change the color. As with all our polymer clays, it is easy to condition right out of the package and stays soft until you bake it. Unlike many clays, Super Sculpey is firm enough to hold details and tooling. After curing in the oven, Super Sculpey can be sanded, drilled, carved and painted with water-based acrylic paints. History 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.CharacteristicsIn 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.CuringSuper 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 ½" thickness would be cured for 30 minutes. The layering method is recommended for lager pieces of construction. (See Technical Section.)UseThe translucent pink-beige color has made Super Sculpey the favored polymer of many art dollmakers. Because of the fine tooling and detailing characteristics of Super Sculpey, it is frequently the chosen clay for making prototypes from which molds are made from the Super Sculpey sculptures; then reproductions are made using the molds. Additionally, artists are producing finely detailed finished sculptures using Super Sculpey.StorageSculpey polymer clay products should remain fresh if properly stored in a cool place, away from heat and direct sunlight
