    Question? Sculpey III

    dose Super Sculpey get easer to work with if you mix it with Sculpey III,
    dose it get a little bit harder so it's easier to make details?

    Super Sculpey gets a bit softer with sculpey III added. I think most folks add the III to get a more opaque material. translucency of super sculpey will hide all the mistakes and make it really hard to finalize a sculpey piece.

    I find it really hard to get detail in sculpey with what I've done...I think if I use it again I'll be using it to rough something out only..

    Leech super sculpey to make it "harder".

    Use Premo instead of sculpey3 to color SS since it will also make SS stronger when baked.

    hardening with temperature

    Sculpey III does make Super Sculpey softer, however if you're looking for a temporary solution, I use that canned air that is used to clean computer parts. If you turn it upside down, it'll spray out condensed air which will freeze the sculpey for a few minutes so you can get in and do small details.
    This isn't a permenant solution, and I'm not sure that it's good for the clay if you use it a bunch. It might lead to more cracking when you bake.
