Stargazing Wizard by bonbon3272 Stargazing Wizard by bonbon3272
Decided to name this little guy Tobin. This is the first time I've ever used super sculpey, and I LOVE IT! The only thing is I don't know about the baking part. I did, after all, sculpt it on top of a glass bottle, and I don't think the glass bottle would survive a bake. What can I do to harden the clay?

Very cool! You can harden Sculpey with a hair dryer or boiling water :D

Huh, didn't think about boiling water. I had thought about a hair dryer, but wasn't sure how effective it might be. Thanks!!!

It's a trick I learned making custom action figure heads. I do old school Mego, the original heads are vinyl. They take Sculpty well, but would melt in an oven, so hair dryer or boiling water is the ticket :D And your very welcome!

That's really cool! I really appreciate the tip because I was thinking of building something around these antique bottles, but they're really tall and wouldn't fit in an oven. Hair dryer. Yes!!

A lot of Sculpey is air-dry, too, I think. Very nice, I really like his expression. :)

Thanks. I wish this would air-dry. But if that's true, then the opened box would have dried up two years ago, lol.

I could be thinking of another sort of clay. I'd think you'd need to remove him from the bottle before you bake him, though, because the glass would probably break.

Actually, it worked out okay. On the website it says glass is okay to use because of the low temperature.

That's good. It's been years since I touched anything to do with clay. I guess he's done now?
