Our Journey From Innovation to Artistry

Sculpey® oven-bake clay was the result of a happy accident. In 1967, innovators created the clay to act as a thermal transfer compound to conduct heat away from electrical transformer cores. The material was unsuccessful for its intended purpose and set aside until the director of the lab discovered the clay was highly versatile. It could be shaped, baked, sanded, carved and painted — a crafter's dream come true.

Sculpey® clay has since revolutionized the craft industry. Our oven-bake clay is soft and easy to use, making it an ideal medium for beginners and experienced clayers alike. We strive to bring innovation and creative inspiration to artists and crafters wherever they are along their crafting journey.
