DO YOU HAVE TO USE A KILN? by brat352
I am very interested in starting to learn about poly clay crafts and am wondering if a kiln is absolutely necessary. Would my home oven work as well (it's electric, not gas). -- To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks!

Leeching clay by Fenrir Enterprises
Just how much can you leech before the clay isn't usable? Started beading with Sculpey III after leeching it once and it was still way too soft, especially the purple and mint green colors - just trying to pierce a bead even when left to cool down would cause the whole thing to squash. They're now...

Air bubbles from pasta machine? by mermaidscove
I've worked with clay before but I mainly did inlay and sculpting. Now I got a pasta machine to try out some other techniques. I'm using Premo clay. When I condition it according to directions I've found on the web (putting the clay though the machine up to ten times on the thickest setting) it...

My First Class by Diana Curtis
Some might think that having a single person show up would be a dissappointment, but for me it was perfect. My student and I had fun covering real blown eggs with clay, then she took off on her own and covered a pen and made beads! I got to explain a lot of the basics with her, and she saw how...

cooking poly clay - when is it done? by peter
I followed the instruction and cook the clay for 15 min at 275F. When I removed it, it is still elastic. Does that mean it's not cooked, or does it harden after it cools down? I ended up cooking it a few more minutes until it hardened. But I'm not quite sure if it was necessary.

Want to make buttons by Kathy
Hi, I am interested in making my own buttons for my handmade clothes. Which type of poly clay would be best? I have a large block of cernit, but it's white, & turns a flesh color when baked. I plan on using the cernit to make molds. Should I restrict it to just the molds, or could I mix it with...

in the style of "memory vessels" by cAndRaley
Hello, I made a clay-covered tin that reminds me of the "memory vessels" in folk art/tramp art. The memory vessels were usually bottles or jugs, sometimes boxes, covered with various found objects like keys, buttons, etc. Some were then covered with a unifying color, some weren't. Thought I'd...

Newbie: Any Mitre Boxes for PC? by Carlo Milono
Does anybody have knowledge of commercial mitre boxes (or designs)? I'm relatively new to PC, and I can't use my woodworking mitre box (with a saw) on such delicate things like 1/32" translucent slabs for a PC stained glass, for example. I'd like to be able to do perfect 72degree cross-sections,...

Happy kid! by Polly S.
When I work with beads my (almost 4 yr old) grandson basically ignores me but let me pull out one piece of clay and he just lights up! At Michaels the other day I finally gave in and let him pick out the colors he wanted in Fimo (yellow and purple), while thinking of all the ways I could protect...
