Sculpey UltraLight is the most versatile member of the Polyform family of clays. UltraLight is lightweight and extremely soft but bakes so hard that it won't crack or break, even in larger pieces.
However, UltraLight remains flexible when rolled thin, so it is ideal for paper crafts. This soft, easy-to-handle clay can be used to create just about anything. UltraLight can be used as a filler for polymer clay beads, helping to keep jewelry -- especially larger pieces -- light and comfortable.
Used to create decorative accents, the baked-hard clay can be sanded, drilled, buffed and painted with acrylic paints. This versatile new product even floats, making it perfect for floating candle holders or bathtub toys.
Making Christmas ornaments that don't cause tree branches to sag is a trick with any craft. New UltraLight is the perfect medium for ornaments, especially large ones. UltraLight is a great replacement for tin foil armatures, offering a smoother base for clay projects to be built around. Because it bakes so hard that it won't crack, larger sculpting projects are finally possible with UltraLight foundations.
In addition to accepting paint beautifully, when covered with Sculpey and Premo clays, the new ultra-light clay chemically bonds together with the covering material to make the final project even stronger.
Sculpey UltraLight can be colored by mixing it with Sculpey III or Premo polymer clay.
