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.
The 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 freuently the chosen clay for making prototypes from which molds are made from the Super Sculptures, then repoductions are made using the molds. Additionally, artists are producing timely detailed finished sculptures using Super Sculpey.
