Similarly, how do you know when Sculpey clay is done baking?

To test the curing, try pressing the tip of your fingernail into the bottom of your piece after it has cooled; it will leave a mark but will not actually enter the clay. For Premo! Sculpey, preheat to 275 degrees F (135 C). Bake for 30 minutes per quarter inch of thickness.

Also, how long do you bake polymer clay? Sculpey does best at about 275°F, for 10 — 25 minutes, depending on size, especially depending on thickness. Red and yellow may darken too fast at this temperature, so use a cooler oven (say 265½°F) for a little longer. Premo should bake at 275°F, for 30 minutes per quarter inch of thickness.

can you bake polymer clay in a regular oven?

You can use any oven that will reach and maintain the correct temperature through the baking process. It's perfectly safe to use your home oven. You don't need to dedicate your oven to polymer clay. Small ovens are fine, but tiny ovens can cause more burning.

Can I bake Sculpey on aluminum foil?

If an object has a variance in thicknesses, an armature should be shaped in order to “bulk out” the thick parts – tightly crushed heavyweight aluminum foil is the best material to use. Cover form with a 1/4″ thick layer of clay. Bake for 15 minutes at 275°F (135°C).
