Super Sculpey 453g Beige
Super Sculpey is the Ultimate Sculpting Compound!
Used by Movie Studios and Professionals Worldwide and a favourite with Doll Makers
In response to the popularity of Sculpey, Super Sculpey was formulated. Users required a clay of greater tensile strength and Super Sculpey was the answer.
In colour, Super Sculpey is a translucent pink-beige. Like Sculpey, 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.
Super Sculpey should be cured in a preheated 130 degree C oven for 15 minutes per quarter inch of thickness. DO NOT MICROWAVE. For example, a piece of ½" thickness would be cured for 30 minutes. The layering method is recommended for lager pieces of construction.
The translucent pink-beige colour has made Super Sculpey the favoured polymer of many art dollmakers. Because of the fine tooling and detailing characteristics of Super Sculpey, it is frequently the chosen clay for making prototypes from which moulds are made from the Super Sculpey sculptures; then reproductions are made using the moulds. Additionally, artists are producing finely detailed finished sculptures using Super Sculpey.
Sculpey polymer clay products should remain fresh if properly stored in a cool place, away from heat and direct sunlight.
The ultimate sculpting compound! Super Sculpey is used by movie animation studios, professional sculptors and dollmakers the world over, and others just looking for a strong clay that works and blends easily, and will hold fine detail. Its excellent tooling qualities make it the preferred choice for casting and all types of sculpture. Super Sculpey comes only in the semi-translucent beige colour in our graphic.
Super Sculpey carves and drills easily, and can be painted with water-based acrylics. Available in 453g retail packaging.
