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…

Papa’s Clay…

  • 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.
