So You Want to Make Props with Sculpey by moonymonster So You Want to Make Props with Sculpey by moonymonster
Like I said...please only use this for costuming purposes. Otherwise, the sky's the limit with what you can do with a little bit of clay, foil, and imagination...

A note on clay here. You are using Fimo and Sculpy together, they bake at differnt temps. If you cook at the Fimo temp, you risk the item not baking completely, and this reduces the durabliity of your item. An item not completely cured will appear to be fully baked, but will crack over time. If you bake at the Sculpy temp, you risk burning your item. I stick to the high end sculpy brand myself (Premo!) as it is more durable than the sculpy.

I prefer Sculpy myself, but to each their own. I only mixed Fimo and Sculpy together in this example because I was making a badge for a friend and didn't feel like buying more clay...it's held up pretty well as far as I know, but yeah, I don't know if it'd work out like that for larger projects. I plan on making a second tutorial at some point anyway because this is just one way to make props and I know others XD

Cool, just wanted to mention the fimo/sculpy thing. It will hold up for 6 months to a year, so if it is just for a 1-2 times use with costumes not a problem. If it is something you want more wear out of, they will probably not hold up.

Yes ^^ Very true. This is a tutorial pretty much for costume making but it's good to point out that mixing clays is generally not the best of ideas, unless you're running low and don't have a choice. Lots of cosplayers go down the "Do I have enough to get this costume done" road XD

Oh, I have been down that road with my costumes.

And actually you can mix clays as long as they are baked at the same temp.
