Yes, all of our polymer clay comes pre-conditioned! What exactly does that mean? When you buy clay at the craft store, it comes in blocks and is initially very hard to work with. We do the hard part for you and condition the clay so it is soft and ready to be molded!
Generally, the flatter/smoother the surface, the better. Glass is the easiest surface to sculpt on, and easiest to clean up, but tile and Plexiglas surfaces are suitable as well. Do not sculpt on wood surfaces as polymer clay may damage it.
It is advised to keep your hands as clean as possible while sculpting, using the provided moist towelettes often to remove any different clay color residue, lint, or dirt that may transfer to your hands throughout the sculpting process. If your light colored clay becomes dirty, kneed in clean fingers until dirt and particles have re-distributed through the clay.
Generally speaking, polymer clay is relatively mess free. However, there will be a small amount of reside left on your hands and work surface from working with it. Traditional soap and water will not remove the clay, but our DIY Clay Kits come provided with a moist towelette that will clean your hands and work surface and remove any reside.
We make our own cleaning solution (water, 70% Isopropil rubbing alcohol & Dawn Ultra - Free & Gentle dish soap with no dyes or perfumes), and apply it to Bounty paper towel segments. This solution is safe and will do a great job removing any clay reside from your hands and work surface!

Yes! Our DIY Clay Kits are a fabulous activity for children interested in fun crafts. Each child is different, but we recommend kids ages 5+, along with adult supervision. You can expect it to take anywhere from 40 minutes to 1 hour to sculpt a figurine (excluding baking and cooling time).
Everyone is different and has their own style, so it's completely normal for your figure to look slightly different then the sample shown in the photos and video. Do not worry about perfection, just have fun with it! :)
No, we do not recommend for children to play with the figures once baked. They are intended for decoration purposes only. Our figures have an optional hook included for hanging, but also can be converted into a standing figure with a base, or alternatively a magnet for the refridgerator/metal surface.
Yes! If you are having a hard time finding what you would like from our large selection of DIY Clay Kits, you can further customize one and choose from multiple clothing options, sets of matching props, and even custom name signs.
