I have just started experimenting with Super Sculpey, and I love the feel of this material plus the fact that you can bake it, add more material and bake it again etc.
I plan a bigger (about 30 cm.) piece and I guess that would need some armature (wood, tin foil etc.). In order to save on the rather expensive SS, I was thinking if it was possible to make coarse modelling in salt dough, bake it and make finer details in SS.
Do you think this approach will work?
P.S. I am in doubt as to the baking time of the SS. The instruction sheet says 15 min. for each quarter inch material, but my sculpture didn't seem quite finished, but since this is my first time, I have no idea what it should look like when properly baked.
Some guy on a forum baked it for much longer, until it was mahogany brown, which should make it stronger and less prone to chipping. What do you guys do?
