Experience with Super Sculpey

Followers 1

Recommended Posts

I have been using Sculpey clay. I was a bit worried the first time I made one, sat it on my deck for the winter. It was in an unprotected spot and lasted the whole winter. In my area we got huge amounts of snow that winter. It came through without a problem. Sculpey is a clay you bake after baking, I paint it then cover it with an outdoor clear coat. The first Sculpey cache has been out almost a year now. The only repairs I have had to do is when the glue I used failed or when a cache has been stolen. I made two of each cache for this reason. I can swap it out and repair as needed without having to really change the container. I mold the glue around a water type container then bake. (make sure container is bakeable) There are other ways to do this without baking the container. But, this post is getting to long, email if you need more information. :D

Like you, I've only worked with Epoxy putty (great stuff, but it sets up too quickly sometimes), but I know other cachers that have worked with the Sculpy clay and they speak very highly of it. I know of one fake dog poo cache made with it that lasted for several years in Minnesota before it went missing.
