Some Answers to "Essentials" Post

I was going to respond on the comments section, but thought it may be better for this to have its own post.

Here are my thoughts on some of the questions. If I get anymore

queries on the comments, I will edit this post.


~ Jackie, yes Prosculpt is a polymer clay which you cure in the oven. I use a roaster oven that is dedicated 100% to my clay. Purchased it at a church yard sale several years ago and I love it



I used to sculpt with Cernit, however ran into difficulties finding it in Canada. Marilyn Radzat put me on to prosculpt a few years ago and I have used it ever since. I find it blends well, is easy to condition and is quite strong (when cured according to manufacturer's directions).

~ Diane, in a pinch I have covered the wire with masking tape, however I prefer the white floral tape (can be found at Michael's). It is stretching so that application when winding around the wire is fast and easy. It also definitely gives the clay something to hold onto. If you ever see a vintage nail tool, pick it up - you may find that you really like using it.

~ Robin, have to agree that dental tools are a wonderful addition to any studio. I have a couple that I use quite abit. My favorite dental tool is a scraper, which works great for (wait for it LOL) scraping! When painting eyes especially, I often have little tags and blobs of paint in places I don't want - the dental scraper takes care of those getting rid of them without damaging or marking the clay.

~ Kaerie, I also use wire and foil with air dry clays. Again, I cover with floral tape or masking tape to give the clay something to grap onto.

I think that is it for now! Thank you everyone for reading and commenting on yesterday's post - and Tristan, yes - I can so 'see' using books! Be back later!

Wow I've seen only one other artist that uses a electric roaster oven and that was another Canadian doll artist. I'm going to look for one now. I have a convection oven but it's on it's last leg..

I gave my vintage nail tool away : (

I have a tool that I've gotten from Richard and Jodi Creager ~ Richard grinds down the ends to make them into little flatish cups. I love them and my rubber tipped clay tools.

I like proscult but it's so darn expensive....

OK now are you making those darling girls that I missed a chance to buy ??? : )

Wonderful, thank you :)

I am also new to the oven bake clays. I have been working with the puppen fimo, I must explore other clays. I thought of looking for a toaster oven in the spring, but if I see one of those roasters at a yard sale, I will snag it.
Thank you so much Sue, for sharing your expertise and knowledge :)

I am from Canada too. Wow I am shocked.. I would have never thought a roaster would work! I should give it a try. Right now I am using a convection and seems to be working perfectly. Thanks for this post!
