THE POLYMER CLAYS WITH ACRYLIC EYES All the eyes I sell on this web catalog will bake with
the polymer clays. I use an oven thermometer in a tall toaster oven with a
glass door. I place my doll head sculpture in the
oven, turn it on set to 250 to 265 degrees. I watch the temperature until it
reaches and hold the 250 to 265 degrees. Bake 10 to 15 minutes per 1/4"
thickness of the clay (not counting the nose). Be sure the acrylic eyes are not too close to the
heating elements. Turn off the oven, crack the door and let the clay oven
cool. Place damp cotton balls on the acrylic eyes when
baking. I also bake the clays multiple times as I add or
BISQUE SKULL FORMS These are the forms to use as a base or form for
sculpting using the polymer clays. The largest will make a
doll head slightly larger than life size. The SK002 is used for life
size doll head. What a great idea to use instead of the tin
foil. The teeth can be painted off white when sculpting to create an
open mouth. These heads have been fired at much higher temperatures
than a home oven. Paint
with any acrylic paint so the clay will adhere to the skull or cover
with aluminum foil.
I can custom cut any of
these.... .i.e. eye sockets or between
teeth Please note in comments box at checkout
