This is a detailed tutorial and is great for people of all skill levels. In this tutorial, we will sculpt a polymer clay meditating cat, a wire rake and make a moss sand and stone garden.

Baking Instructions for Sculpey 3 Polymer Clay
Preheat oven to 275 degrees, bake sculpture on a slick/smooth ceramic plate for 15 minutes per quarter inch of thickness of clay. For example, if the clay is one inch thick, bake it for one hour. After baking, turn off the oven and open the oven door. Allow the sculpture to cool completely before moving it from the oven.
