Sculpting Design


Baking Your Design

dough clay sweetheart candyBake your dough clay hearts at 200 degrees for est. 120 minutes. Dough must be baked until it is solid hard all the way through.

Watch out for puffing while baking thicker designs; try to keep it less than ½ inch for better outcomes.

Make test run before you make bunch of letters because dough has a mind of its own and I can’t say for sure how your clay will dry out.

Painting & Varnishing
