Sculpey Ultra Light

Polyform has a product called Sculpey Ultra Light, it is very light and fluffy very much like Hearty or LaDoll Premier air-dry clays only it's a PMC that requires baking.

It was actually very nice to sculpt with but VERY soft. When I boiled the first time everything went great, but the second layer/boil boiled off. There was cured fluffy crap floating everywhere. When I took the sculpture out of the water the original cured part crumbled away like ash.

Soften area with a heating gun. Use a sharp knife and cut carefully

Use a dremel tool with a wheel that can cut through metal. Wear protective glasses. There is no one right way to do anything I've learned. Do what suits you best. If you make a mistake. Fix it and try again. Good luck !

The pop sculpture book suggests a jewelers saw.

Give me a little time to do this right. It's not brain surgery, but there are techniques that will make the work go easier.

Kdawg has offered to post stickies of any tutorials I want to offer, so I will try and give you guys as much info as I can, given my schedule and the time constraints that I have.
did this tutorial ever get posted?

sorry i am first time in sculpting and would like to know more about purchasing oven to bake the sculpey. Sorry if it has answered some where hidden in the threads of discussion..

my question what should i look for in purchasing oven for baking the clay? i am looking into small oven, is it fine? what the temperature range should i be looking at? or the minimum volume?

i am intending to get a used toaster oven as would not be using for cooking and poison myself...haha...

not looking for perfect answer but to get some sensing...thank you
