INTRODUCING PAPA'S CLAY
A New and Unique Type of Polymer Clay You're Going to Love!
- Papa’s Clay may feel different than other polymer clay you have worked with.
- It will feel more crumbly at the start, because it contains less oil.
- You’ll need to warm and condition it before beginning.
But here’s why less oil is a good thing…
- Is less sticky than other clays, allowing for much finer detailing
Does not collect dust and fingerprints like other clays
- Works better for layering because it cools faster, so you can add details more quickly
Other things we LOVE about this clay…
- Comes in a larger size of 2.6 oz bar
- The texture is matte, not shiny or rubbery (it is similar to the texture of marshmallow), making it more natural-looking
- This clay is non-toxic, gluten free and is without odors or allergens, which also means less fumes when baking
- The assortment of super bright and vivid colors mix beautifully to create endless shades and possibilities. Color does not change during baking
- Can be used with wood and wire as base materials
- Forms and shapes stay put and are strong out of the oven. After hardening, clay can be further shaped with a chisel, scalpel, file, or sandpaper
- Clay retains incredible flexibility after hardening without losing strength
- Need to add multiple layers? This clay can be baked over and over
Acrylic paints work wonderfully on this clay, and don’t get sticky
- Super long-lasting in the package, and able to be conditioned after many months

Instructions for Use of Papa's Clay:
- Roll a piece of Papa’s clay and knead gently until it is shapeable. A hair dryer can also be used to quickly warm the clay.
- Always work with clean hands on a clean surface.
- After clay is thoroughly warmed, shape using any of a wide variety of tools such as spatulas, rolling pins, knives, or a pasta machine.
- Any home oven is suitable for hardening (do not use microwave). Preheat oven at 265 F / 130 C
- Depending on size of model and thickness of walls, the hardening process takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes, but can be baked longer.
