Bake Shop clay is soft and easy to use, making it the perfect clay for beginners!
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey Tools™ 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.
Sculpey Bake Shop® clay is perfect for children's crafts. Whether you're a parent, teacher or babysitter, our Bake Shop clay provides hours of endless creativity.
Our safe, non-toxic formula is easily pliable for small hands to enjoy. Bake Shop clay is similar in feel to ceramic clay, but it will not dry out by being exposed to air. This means you can store it and reuse it again and again. The only way Bake Shop clay will harden is through baking it in an oven.
Choose from a wide variety of colors for clay and types. Sculpey Bake Shop comes in 14 fun colors making it the perfect choice for a variety of projects!
Bake Shop clay offers limitless opportunities to create any project you want, from unique jewelry to detailed animal figurines. You can also embellish school projects, make household decorations or mini food and furniture for dollhouses.
After curing your projects, decorate them with a glaze finish or water-based acrylics. You can glue, sand, carve, drill and ink your creations, too.
To bake your Bake Shop clay, preheat your oven to 275 °F. Once the oven is ready, place your crafts in the oven and bake for 15 minutes per 1/4 inch thickness. To avoid cracking or burning your craft, use an oven thermometer to gauge heat and avoid going over the necessary baking time.
An adult should take care of the baking in a home oven or toaster oven. Never use a microwave to bake the clay.
