How to Use Sculpey® Polymer Clay Molds
When you're ready to fill your Sculpey® Polymer Clay Mold with clay, start by properly conditioning your material. You can use all of the Sculpey oven safe molds with either Liquid Sculpey or Sculpey polymer clay. Next:
- - Fill every crevice and detailed area of the mold with polymer clay. You may find that as you push the clay down into the cavities, little pieces tend to stick to your fingers. If this happens, simply roll your finger off the clay as opposed to pulling straight up.
- - Once you've filled the crevices with enough clay, carefully press down with your fingers or thumb to ensure all bits of clay are fully fused.
- - Remove excess clay from the back of the mold using a blade — you may need to use a needle tool for the fine detail areas. When working with a knife, it's better to chip away at the excess clay with several shallow passes rather than one big slice. You may find that the blade pulls clay out of the shallower areas of the mold. If this happens, push the stray pieces back in.
- - Check to make sure there are no stray bits of clay clinging to the mold's face. If not, you're almost ready for baking!
If you would rather not bake your clay inside the mold, gently flex the silicone to pop out your design. You can also adhere the clay to a glossy surface before gently peeling the mold away. Then, bake as usual and enjoy your piece.
