To sculpt and shape with Papa’s clay, you must first bring the molding compound into working condition.
Soften the polymer clay first – with a light squeeze in your fist, for a minute or two, with the warmth of your hands. After that, lightly squeeze and knead it and in this way the clay will quickly become ready for shaping. If the softening of the clay takes too long or is too difficult for you, you can preheat it with a hair dryer.
Store Papa’s Clay in its original packaging at room temperature, tightly closed to minimize contact with air.
