hey.. I have a friend who was going over things to make for another one of our friend's birthdays. She had the idea of making a bowl (pipe-type thing used to smoke out of) out of Sculpey. I was just wondering, do you think that would produce any harmful smoke or toxic stuff that you'd be breathing in if you tried to smoke out of it?

note: on the package it says to try not to inhale any of the steam produced while the clay is hardening in the oven.

me and her thought that those "harmful fumes" in the steam might just be a one time thing, while the moisture in the clay is rising out of it.

any comments/advice/ideas? THANKS!

bad idea. sculpey is a plastic. you wouldn't use a plastic bowl would you? it'll scorch and emit all kinds of nasties. the "steam" is not steam at all, in the sense that it isn't water. there's not water in sculpey, even when it's unbaked. it's all plasticizers. make a holder for papers or maybe something to stash baggies in.

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

I'm not a poly clay expert but there are supposed to be interesting things emitted when polyclays are heated that coat the interior of your oven and you're not supposed to bake them on pans, etc. that you use for consumables... I agree with the bad idea part.
