Sculpey is a polymer clay made by Polyform Products Company sold in a variety of solid and swirled colours. You don't need a kiln to fire it; Sculpey can be air dried or baked in a regular oven to create hardened sculptures or jewellery. Lightweight and inexpensive, Sculpey can set the imagination free so ideas come to life.
This easy project takes only a couple of hours and makes a great gift. To create the draughts, roll two different colours of Sculpey into snake shapes and slice. Make 15 slices of each colour. Bake at 121 degrees Celcius (250 degrees Fahrenheit) for 30 minutes. Create your own checker board or use a store bought one. A roll-up laminated board allows you to take the game with you. Customise your draughts by embedding gems or trinkets before baking and colouring the board to match.
Use a leftover mint tin to create a turtle case. Sculpey Club recommends using Super Sculpey for this project. Roll clay flat until you have enough to cover the bottom of the tin. Carve shell detail using inexpensive clay sculpting tools. Sculpt and attach legs and head, checking for balance so the tin rests evenly on a table. Create and attach the upper shell to the top of the tin. Bake at 121 degrees Celsius (250 degrees Fahrenheit) for 30 minutes and paint.
Turn a ballpoint stick pen into a work of art. Roll Sculpey onto a flat sheet and roll around the pen to get the right size. Cut along the length and use another pen to smooth out the seam by rolling the pen across it. You can bake at this point or adorn with other Sculpey shapes. The Poly Parrot recommends cutting designs into the Sculpey before baking and filling with grout afterwards. You can create a custom pen holder to match and bake it at the same time.
