I'm thinking about trying Super Sculpey Firm and would like some advice / feedback from anyone who has used it in comparing it to regular Super Sculpey.  scratch

Super Sculpey Firm is just a harder version of Super Sculpey, that's the only difference I would say. And the color is grey instead of beige . Smile

Its a fantastic clay, I'd recommend it. It holds detail really well. Athough it's hard to knead and make soft if you have cold hands! I haven't found any limitations with this clay and I'm still discovering new ways to use it.

I use it, but only when mixed with at least a small amount of "regular" super sculpey. It works well particularly for weight supporting limbs.

Of course it's ok .. I hope it benefits everyone.

Thanks Ana and Harriet and Geospiza, I've been getting a bit frustrated with regular super Sculpey as it sometimes feels too soft and I often have to rework areas of detail that get squashed even with a light touch when turning a model in my hands.

I was wondering if there's any difference once it comes to baking and if the 'Firm' clay still retains similar flexibility to 'regular' or if it is more brittle?

I would say it was more brittle once it's cured. When you first remove it from the oven it's still flexible and you have time to make sure the model is in the correct position before it cools and hardens completely.
