Super Sculpey Opinion

Posted in Custom Workstation

I am sculpting onto a head which I already had to redrill the peg hole.
I am using SS cause I am doing a trememous amount of small detail work here. Now, what is your opinions, do I remove the head and bake it separate( the negative being that the head might melt and I will lose any face detail on the non sculpted) OR Boil the head ( with the chanc eof it not curing properly and crumbling).
So far I am leaning towards baking the head.

I boiled, didn't cure properly so I baked it.

came out fine. Sanded and placed back on the figure. I use SS sparingly but I shall bake it from now on.

When I used Sculpey I always baked it and only times I had a problem was with pieces of hard plastic. Heads are very soft.
I don't know, I've never boiled a head so I have nothing to compare to.

I myself use super sculptey,I would go with boiling the head I jus suggest you boil it alittle longer that you usaully would jus to make sure it cures completely

Depends on whose figure it's going to be, if you're keeping it and know you won't abuse it then boil it, for a customer you should definitely bake it. The thing is that you have to use a lower heat setting on the oven so the fig doesn't melt and keep it in there longer.
