Finished! Just have to bake it now and hope for the best. It will definately require a foil tent Cheesy. I'm pretty happy with it, I tried out stuff I've never done before.
I think I will need to do a little embellishing of other parts of it though, non-clay related just a general prettying up Wink.

Sweet!  I can't wait to see it.  
I'm just about to start my second attempt at yours.  I had to get more clay. Had to get Skulpy instead of Femo this time. Never used Skulpy before but I'm guessing they are not too different. Our Michaels had a rather sad collection of Femo colors..wonder if they are fazing it out?

SSQQQUUUUEEEEEEE*cough*..I mean, it looks like my second attempt will be better then the first try.  It's baking right now.  I did it a different way then I did yesterday...foil inside for one thing...*crosses fingers*

If you are looking for something stronger, you want to use Fimo, Sculpey is crap and its brittle after baking. =] take it from experience, i have used a lot of different clays, and even baked same thickness pieces to test my theories.
Polyclay in general is not good for making large thin items like bowls or dishes. You would have to make the object very thick, cook it for a long time covered with foil, and buy a lot, its really a waste pretty much, of money.

I was not impressed by the Sculpey either.  I had a rather hard time conditioning it for one.  The new type of Fimo is so easy to work with.  My hot hands nearly make it too sticky. (last time I crafted with Fimo was many...manymany years ago.  I used to have to use a heating pad to get it workable.)  I am going to use the old school (and probably totally toxic till dry) fimo varnish I have.  It seems to make things stronger.  My Little Thing did seem to bake all right (this time).  I used a bit loser temp for a longer time, and the foil in the middle

Yes but you should also tent a piece of foil over the top of anything you bake, especially in a toaster oven, which is also what i use, Since your piece sits so close to the heating elements it causes the clay to darken and sometimes get dark spots like burns or scorching. Foil prevents this! If you cover with foil it preserves the true color of the clay =] without giving it that "Baked cookie" look.
