Sculpey 3 Polymer Clay Baking Instructions

Preheat your household oven to 275 degrees and bake for 15 minutes per quarter inch of clay thickness. (to calculate this, find the thickest part of the turtle, measure the thickness and bake according to the above directions.) When the baking is complete, turn off the oven and open the oven door. Allow the sculpture to cool completely before handling it. Note: The oven won’t get hot enough to hurt the stone.

Thanks Jake!! Quick question – can you glue that Moss , or will glue damage it in some way?

Bunnytoes says:

Oh this is so cool! I actually think you've inspired me to do clay again, I regret being a procrastinator but watching this makes me want to make a tree that grows under water. Thank you for the inspiration! <3

Hi Jake.
Love your fairy tree house and watching you make it. I am a retired pastry chef teacher specialising in chocolate and sugar sculptures of 42 years. Watching you reminded me of when I was teaching at our college of TAFE here in Australia. What you have done here is truly a credit to you being self taught. Your patience and dedication is commendable. I will offer you a small tip for when you are rolling sausages. If you cut a piece of ice cream container plastic and using medium pressure not to flatten it as you roll over the top of your clay, it will lengthen it and keeps it even.
Keep up the good work and I have subscribed not to miss what you do. You have made this old girl very happy today 👍👍👍👍👍👍🤗

Jake can I ask you a question?

Paula Lotte says:

Jake, first thing…Thank you and God bless for serving our country! I am a needle felter, I pretty much sculpt wool and am wanting to learn to sculpt with polymer clay. Your video was packed with wonderful tips and I thank you for taking the time to show everyone the process. Your treehouse is stunning! Looking forward to watching more of your videos.

Probably one of the best tutorials I have seen on actual techniques and reasons why things work better this way rather than that way. Great teaching skills, which are hard to come by. Thank you.

Michelle Lynn Fine Art says:

The sculpey lll is too soft for me. I like the premo better, and fingerprints don't show up on it as much.

Anne Parker says:

I have made my tree, I just need to buy some moss, I have lots on our property but I don't know how to dry it, I would rather buy it ready done. 🙂  I can post a picture when finished.  I used gold paint to highlight, I would rather the powder but I have to find it first, however, the gold does stand out nice.  My tree is much smaller than yours Jake and it's on a flat stone, the next one I try will be on a rounded stone.  Thanks again Jake. <3

Riley Cullen says:

Great video!

Anne Parker says:

Hi Jake. I loved, loved, loved the way you sculp. The tree is awesome.  I am going to try one.  I sculp little fairy houses using small bottles, I have been doing houses for about 6 months.  I did make fairies, angles, turtles, elephants, dogs, cats, anything I could think of that was easy just to get the feel of using poly clay.  I want a tree to go with my 11 little houses and lighthouse I made.  I am going to browse your site.  I love your work.  Thank you for sharing. hugs, Anne
