Review Thursday on Wednesday-- Super Sculpey & Best Christmas gift ever

Don't forget to enter the My Memories Suite V3 GIVEAWAY >>>>HERE ......Ends Christmas Eve

Since Review Thursday happens to fall on my son's birthday I thought I would do a review right now before I finish cleaning the house before family comes over. Ah yes procrastination. *insert sarcasm* Don't you love it?

Anywho, today's review is going to be of a crafty nature.  As many know, I create 1:12 scale Miniatures. And to do that I use polymer clay. I started out with the regular Sculpey II and Premo in flesh tones to make my dolls. I really did not like the over all look of it. It looked very much like plastic. I don't like that. I prefer for things to be as close to life as possible. So I decided for this project I would go up a step and get Super Sculpey.


Super Sculpey is easy to work with. It holds the shape that your tools leave very easily. When Baked it leaves an almost porcelain finish which is beautiful. And the smallest size is a one pound box so there is plenty.

Borrowed from Garie's Clay Creations
The only thing I don't like about Super Sculpey is that is has a tendency to leave "moonies"

The suggestion is that you mix a little white Sculpey Premo with it to reduce the "moonies".

But, if I am going to buy a clay I don't want to have to prepare it all the time.

The other option is Sculpey's new line of clay (Living Doll)that has a different plasticizer that supposedly does not leave moonies.

I hope to one day try Living Doll, it has a larger price tag at about $20 a pound instead of $15 as the Super Sculpey does but I think it is worth a shot.

Now with the project I just did, I did not notice a problem with the moonies. So for this particular box (my only box) I will give this a 10 out of 10 for what I have experienced so far.

On to the fun part. I am going to go out on a limb here and hope that Tena does not read this before Saturday.

This is the Christmas Present I was working so hard on for her. It is my first OOAK Art Doll that is actually finished. I have started many and seem to have random heads lying all over the place. But this is the first time I am actually proud to say I finished a project. It turned out quite well. And I enjoyed creating it.

Introducing my first ever CAPTURED FAERIE.

Isn't she grand?

So all in all I would definitely recommend this product to the everyday sculptor. I liked the results and I think you will too.
