It happens to the best of us. You get in a hurry and forget to check for air bubbles that sometimes form between your clay and the armature of your critter body. Everything looks okay on the surface of things, then the next thing you know, you’re pulling a critter out of the oven that looks like it’s about to spawn some alien babies. Now what? You ask? Well there’s still hope. Go get your critter out of the trash and get ready to perform some minor, no-degree-required surgery.
You’ll need some Sculpey Oven Bake Clay Adhesive, matching clay in the color of the affected area, paring knife or razor blade (if you are a child, please get help from an adult), as well as blending tools. I typically use the Sculpey Style & Detail Tools, a knitting needle & my fingers (my favorite of my favorite tools).
Carefully cut away the bubbled up area. Pour a small amount of the Sculpey Oven Bake Clay Adhesive, into the hole; use just enough to coat the surface of the foil or clay beneath. Also mix a small amount of the Sculpey Oven Bake Clay Adhesive, into some of the “band-aid” clay that you will fill in the hole with. Smooth around the edges & make sure there aren’t any lingering dastardly air bubbles in the mended spot. Texturing to match surrounding areas as needed. Bake & finish your masterpiece.
