Instructions for activity
1. Start with clean hands and work area. Good working surfaces include a glass or metal surface, disposable foil, or wax paper. Do out place unbaked clay on furniture, flooring, carpeting, or fabric. Work from light colours to dark colours. Knead clay until soft and smooth.
2. Shape and tool into desired form. Pieces thicker than 12mm (1/2”) may need “bulking out” with crumpled aluminium foil and/or armature wire. To clean hands use isopropyl alcohol, baby oil or handy wipes, and then soap and water.
3. Baking the clay must be carried out by the supervising adult. Bake each clay brand according to baking instructions in the Baking Guide below. DO NOT MICROWAVE. DO NOT exceed the recommended temperature or baking time. Check the accuracy of your oven. Do NOT over bake or exceed the recommended temperature. Use GOOD ventilation.
4. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Once cool, baked pieces became hard and can be polished, sanded, drilled, carved and painted with 100% acrylic points. If using oil-based paints or water-based acrylics, the items can be sealed with a glaze before or after pointing. Pottery on dishes made with polymer clays should be used for decorative purposes only, not with food, beverages or smoking materials
