How Do I Care for Oven-Bake Clay Creations?


To take the best care of your polymer clay creations, make sure to:

  • - Use a feather duster to remove surface dust.
  • - Keep the piece away from harsh chemicals when cleaning. Do not place your clay creations in a dishwasher, as heat and water will cause damage.
  • - Store your designs indoors. If exposed to direct sunlight, Sculpey® III oven-bake clay will fade over time.
