for super sculpey if i dont have any other oven should i just bake it in my kitchen oven? someone said it was non-toxic
and i was wonder the side effects of baking super sculpey in my kitchen oven if there are any? let know asap
I would suggest using an enclosure to put into your oven, if that's the route you intend to go... Basically using metal pans (like the large aluminum bake pans, something you don't intend to eat with) sealed with aluminum foil around the edges to limit the exposure to the rest of your oven. You'd be making a mini-oven for inside your oven. However, you'd need to test it relative to temperature and bake times (it'd likely take longer to heat up your pieces and the bake times would likely increase, using an old meat thermometer sticking into the mini-oven might help)...
Some people also use heat guns (like the kind used to help strip paint), hair dryers (though they tend to overheat - I don't recommend it), and some have even tried boiling (though I believe this method would tend to distort the figures).
Good luck. [ Added: Wed 05 Aug, 2009 4:48 am ]
Hi ive been collecting munny's for a while now but im entirely new to the customizing game. So please go easy on me
I was just wondering if you would recommend using an airbrush for painting the munny? If so what kinds of particular air brush would you recommend?? I've been looking on Ebay and ive notice some nail airbrush for sale and i just want to know what would be most ideal for painting munny's?
Hey Artron... I suggest you check out this page... If you still have questions, send me a PM... http://www.howtoairbrush.com/ [ Added: Wed 05 Aug, 2009 4:52 am ]
I'm starting off with my first dunny, Do you guys draw a blueprint over with pencil first then go over with paint, or do you just paint it the first time? Although I've read all this info (hours, actually) it all still seems confusing.
It's really up to you... Some (including myself) will LIGHTLY pencil a design onto the piece we're working on. Some people may just freehand it (which I've also done)... I suggest not using any wax based pencils (like a lot of colored pencils or crayons, etc)... Also, be aware that occasionally the pencil may rub off and you'll need to touch it up (just don't go too dark or it could prevent paint, clay, or epoxy from adhering properly)...
