Starting At: $2.52Videos…365°F (185°C) when curing Kato Polyclay. When cured at elevated temperatures, Kato Polyclay will become harder and more durable and have an increased surface gloss. For optimal strength, it is recommended that you cure your piece for 30 minutes. Curing Kato Polyclay for more extended periods… A polymer clay developed with an artist for artists! Kato Polyclay is an easy-to-use polymer clay that bakes in ten minutes to become a robust and sturdy material. You can mix Kato colors to create unique shades with ease once the clay has warmed up in your hand. Create beads for jewelry or sculpt figurines then bake in your household oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Once cooked, the clay can be further improved by sanding and buffing. Kato Polyclays have color stability, uniform consistency, and excellent cured strength. More durable than other poly clays, objects made with Kato Polyclay become permanent works of art that will resist cracking and decay over time. Its smooth texture allows for detailed results for all types of craft, including sculpture, jewelry, home decor, and model making.

When curing compositions, it is recommended that you test the temperature of your oven (especially when using a toaster oven) with an oven thermometer. To do this, place the thermometer into the oven in the approximate location where you will be curing your piece; wait for the thermostat to adjust then adjust the temperature of your oven accordingly until the appropriate temperature is achieved. Kato Polyclay should be cured at about 300°F (150°C); however, it can be cured within the range of 275°F (135°C) and 325°F (165°C). It has been approved to be cured at 350°F (175°C). You should never exceed a temperature of 365°F (185°C) when curing Kato Polyclay. When cured at elevated temperatures, Kato Polyclay will become harder and more durable and have an increased surface gloss. For optimal strength, it is recommended that you cure your piece for 30 minutes. Curing Kato Polyclay for more extended periods will yield similar results as curing it at elevated temperatures; however, it is not recommended that you cure it for longer than the recommended time. Some projects may require that you cure a piece multiple times. For example, after adding an uncured piece of clay or another medium to it. When you create a project like this, it is a good idea to cure the piece in shorter increments of time. For example, if you were baking a piece three different times, it’s recommended that you cure the piece for 10 minutes the first two times and 30 minutes for the final curing this will save you time and ensure that your piece is permanent.
