Just out of curiosity (yes, I'm going to try to do this once I start claywork), this doesn't ruin the marble, does it? I know you can make crackle marbles by baking then dropping into cold water, but I'd probably make a bowl with some of my dad's marbles, and he'd kill me if I ruined his marbles because I baked them :iconnoooooplz:

It's should say on your clay package. If it doesn't, you pre heat your oven to about 275. The depending on how big you peice is, about 15 minutes in the oven.

do you paint it before or after you put the glaze on?

Before, I use the glaze to protect the painting too.

Are you sure I can bake glass, because last time i did it it the glass kinga like shattered from the outside or left that kind of effect.
Reply
:icontalty:
Talty Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2012   Artisan Crafter
It's best to use only "perfect" marbles, if they have cracks they tend to do that. Also I can't predict how each marble of mix of glass will work, so if you want to be sure bake-taste a marble first :) all the glass I've put in the oven has been just fine, but that doesn't mean all will.

Your tutorials are so awesome!
Can i ask what you paint the clay with?
I have some Fimo and i was wondering if i can use water based acrylics to paint it? It's the only paint i have.

sorry if this is not the place to ask.

:icontalty:
Talty Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2012   Artisan Crafter
Thank you!

And don't worry it's fine to ask :D You can paint over clay with acrylic paints, any kind of acrylic paints works. Avoid using anything that is oil based over polymer clay, it never dries.

won't the marble crystallize or crack or something if you put it in the oven?
Reply

Talty Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012   Artisan Crafter
Nop :) I've made it a million times with the exact same marble and nothing has ever happened. Just to be safe I do recommend using a marble that has no cracks.

Very intresting. I have a few qustions if you don't mind. I've never used clay before but I want to try sculpting with it. I've had an idea for awhile of a sculpture I want to do but I wanted to know if I need to do anything with treating the clay. I have a vauge idea of airbubbles? Anything like that would be very usful. Thank you in advance.

And the bowls are ADORABLE!

:icontalty:
Talty Featured By Owner May 28, 2012   Artisan Crafter
Thanks! Actually, if you're using polymer clay you don't have to worry about air bubbles. Polymer clay is very easy to use, all you need to do is take a piece, condition it for a couple of minutes, shape it however you want and bake it at the recommended temperature. It's really that easy, there's no special treatment required :)

have fun with it!

which type grit sand paper would you recommend? fine, coarse, or something in between?

I use several grits, I use 360 or 600 to shape and 1000, 1500 and 2000 to refine and polish :)
