The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Great info

So is it ok to bake parts separately, then attach them and bake the entire thing again?

For example bake a finished head, attach it modify it as necessary and then bake the entire figure ?

Thanks for the help

Yes. Heads, hands, whatever. If you want to make them separate from the figure go right ahead. Bake them, attach them to the figure, sculpt some more, bake again. No problem.

You need to assemble the parts as you would a kit. Use a peg of some kind, and either super glue or epoxy it. Then you can modify the work, re bake, etc.

Any polymer clay will work the same way.

Hi William

Thanks for the tip's, I am about a week off my first cooking session and this thread was recommended by occulum, I was particularly interested in the fact you can cook and re cook. How do you stand if say you cook 2 sections and use Aves to fill then you need to cook again for any additions how dose Aves cope with the process?

It varies, but anything over 1/2 inch could cause problems. Trial and error is your best gauge.
