1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Countertop oven w convection for clay baking? on: February 17, 2015 01:27:51 PM
Greetings
I will first state that I do not have any experience with polymer clay myself, but I would like to buy an oven for my daughter who is taking more than a passing interest in working with super sculpy to make small figurines. Most are around 4 in. tall and less.

After some reading I have concerns about cooking food in the same oven as the clay is baked and that table top ovens might be a good option, especially one that has the convection feature. The oven I'm considering is a Hamilton Beach model:
http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hamilton-Beach-Countertop-Oven-with-Convection/37818667#about

Has anyone used this model or ovens that are similar? If you have any techniques/critiques I would be glad to hear them.
Yes, I did look in the tutorial list, but I don't know how long this particular oven has been in production or what may have changed in sculpy formulas since then.
Thanks for any help you can offer so this will be a useful gift.

This is totally fascinating..but can it work with inkjets or it is restricted to lazer printers only?

Yep..tis the reverse side of coverstitching. I have a Brother coverstitch machine, which wasn't terribly expensive, but does a great job on knit hems. The only issue with it is it likes a strong light thread like Gutturmans ( sp?) in the needles, although serger thread like Maxilock is fine in the looper. Decorative thread would probably work too..tho I haven't tried it myself.

The Janome machines are very nice too, but I was cheap and went with this one..it does the job. <Smiley

Thanks! I'm glad there's some confirmation for the wire idea..it's what I was leaning towards. I'm thinking I'll make a sprial at the end where it goes into the body cavity to anchor it in the fiberfill too.

Greetings, this is a question for anyone who's made plushies with props before. Smiley
I'm making an 11in. UFO style angel plushie and want her halo to stick up about an inch or so over the top of her head. My question is...what should I use as a support to attach the halo- heavy wire, a plastic rod of some sort? I've ruled out wood because it's probably be too easily broken. Also, does it make sense to have the support be long enough to go down through the entire head, neck and partly into the body of the plush or would that be overkill? I just don't want the halo to be all wobbly. This plush will have to survive being dragged around at an anime convention so any advice is appreciated.
Thanks
EA
