That being said, this stuff is still very good quality. It's smooth, and easy to work with. I do advise either working in a cool room, or on top of a ceramic surface to help the clay stay cool. As your hands warm it, it becomes much softer and potentially harder to work with, depending on what you're doing. Of course, this could also be a benefit if you're looking for a softer clay :)
A couple quick notes:
1.) I bake my pieces at 230°F for an hour instead of at 275°F like the box says. I find that baking at a lower temperature for a longer period, offers a harder end result once completely cooled.
2.) Any thin pieces will be a bit flexible. Things like bracelet cuffs or rings or anything else thin should probably use some internal support. Perhaps wire. This isn't a problem of the product so much as it's just a limitation of the material. Other brands are a bit more sturdy, but overall thin pieces will all have this side effect.
I used this to make a cute little fairy house for my fairy garden. It's easy to shape, and once baked it's very hard. Even dropped on a tile floor the finished house did not break, which is great since it was hours of work. If you are making a big item be sure to make it hollow. I like to use tin foil as a structure to build bigger items on. If the clay is too thick it won't bake right or get as hard as it should.
Sculpey makes the clay in dozens of fun colors, I like the white for projects I intend to paint. Acrylic craft paint works just fine after the clay has been baked but you can also use stain like I did on my fairy house pictured. I stained the base, and used craft paint as well. I find the sculpey brand polymer sealer to be the best option to finish off the project.
First, it had to be safe for the fish. I made a sculpey model, baked it as suggested then put it in water for a few weeks without any fish. I then tested the water to see if anything had leached into the water. Nothing had.
Second, it had to hold up under water without falling apart. I found the important thing here was two steps are required.
1.) you have to bake it to the point just before it turns to a brown color to make sure the pores in the material are completely closed. If you don't then the model will still work okay but it tends to be easier to break over time.
2.) You need to paint the item to make up for any spots you might not have baked long enough.
For paint I use a craft paint that is designed for ceramics. Basically apply the paint, let it dry then bake the item in the oven like you do normal sculpey. One thing I have found is that you can actually apply the paint to the unbaked sculpey and it will adhere even better. I tried scraping it off with my nails and it was hard as a rock. The paint I use is the Folk Art Enamel by Plaid. Walmart sells it for $2 a bottle, a bit more here on amazon. You have to use the enamel version, bottles have an E on the top and directions will say for ceramic and glass.
I don't know if the things I made will last forever in the water, but some of them are 5+ years old and no sign of damage being submerged, removed and wiped off from algae or dirt and put right back in the tank. Fish have lived inside the things I made and have taken to them so much that one I wanted to update the fish wouldn't go in the new one, had to put the old one back.
