We encourage you to visit The Art & Creative Materials Institute (www.acminet.org) for detailed information about the safety of art materials. Oven-bake clays in the raw, uncured state and baked state are completely safe. They have been fully tested to conform to all applicable regulations. To ensure safety, use common sense. • Do not ingest clay. • Do not make items which will be used to hold or to serve food or beverages or for smoking materials. • Use dedicated tools, such as sculpting tools or a pasta machine and work surfaces such as cookie sheets or a Pyrex pan for clay purposes only. • Protect work surface. Clays may stain or damage finished surfaces. • Do not over bake. • Do not exceed the recommended baking temperature or time. Do not use a microwave oven. • Use an oven thermometer and follow the recommended baking temperature. • Use good ventilation in the baking area. Wash hands before and after use.
