Additional Resources

    Getting Started:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Oven-Safe Work Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

    Baking:
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Condition 1/4” of a brick of your clay. Roll out into a 1/4” thick sheet. Flip your oval shaped bowl over and lay it on top of your clay sheet. Cut out an oval shape with your clay knife.
Press the oval of clay into the bowl smoothing the edges. You will be baking the clay right in the bowl.
Roll a 2” sized ball for the cat’s head. Shape into a cat’s head making the pointed ears, and nose. Use the end of your paintbrush to make indents inside each ear. Smooth and set aside.
Roll two balls of clay 3/4” to 1” in size. Roll into oval shapes and then flatten slightly to make the paws. Use the pointed attachment on your 5 in 1 tool and make toe indents in both paws. Set aside. Roll two more balls of clay 3/4” in size. Roll into oval shapes and flatten. Make one end of the oval slightly narrower for the feet. Use your 5 in 1 tool again and make toe indents on each foot. Set aside. Roll a snake of clay for the tail approximately 3” long and 1/2” thick.

Paint your cat bowl with acrylic paints as you desire. Allow to dry completely. **Optional: paint a coat of matte finish polyurethane on. This gives a nice finish and seals the acrylic paints but not necessary.
