Hi everyone, I just got some modeling clay for Christmas, and I just opened it. But when I try to Get it to stick together, it just crumbles and breaks. Mad The brand is Sculpy, oven cured. Is the clay too dry? Is there a way to make it stick together? Please help! pale

You need the knead the clay, the heat of your hands softens the clay. When sticking parts together, using your figures is fine but the end of a paint brush or something round so you can roll it on the clay to smooth it out, works well too.
