Product Questions and Answers

I'm using some old Roma non-sulfur clay, and it has become a bit hard from drying out in the air over a number of years. Is there any way to add oil to it with some heat and get it to become pliable again?

- Asked by Billie L on 05-Feb-14

The manufacturer, Sculpture House, states that non-sulfur Plastilina is okay to heat in a microwave, but apply heat in small increments as microwave power levels vary. Other possible options for applying gradual heat include exposure to the sun, heat lamps, or a hair dryer. Avoid overheating and apply heat evenly. A few drops of household oil may also be added and kneaded into the clay.

Can this be spray painted?

- Asked by Maggie on 25-Oct-13

You could spray paint it with acrylic.

- Answered by MisterArt on 28-Oct-13

Will the product stick to the outside of a pumpkin?

- Asked by Maggie on 25-Oct-13

This is non-hardening sculpture clay, it will not stick. If you want it to stick, you need to use self-hardening clay.

- Answered by MisterArt on 28-Oct-13

Does the material need to be dipped into hot water to become soft enough to shape figures?

- Asked by Elton Ko on 25-Sep-13

First, the clay needs to be worked a bit to become soft enough to sculpt. Then the warmth of your hands should be enough. You don't need to dip it in water.

I have used this plastelina for years, and it is wonderful!
Rated by: Robert W. in Bloomington, IN
I was originally introduced to Roma when sculpting at one of Chicago's largest children's theaters. I have used and requested it from that day on. Fantastic! The best oil based clay I have ever had the joy of using. We made intricate puppets to large set pieces and the large heads used by costume characters and mascots.

The #4 is working great for medallion carvings I've been working on, and the #1 has been amazing for small sculptures and smaller pieces of jewelry. Beware if you need a clay for making RTV molds, this clay contains sulfer, and can't be used with liquid silicone! It will eat away at it (I learned this the hard way).

I love the Roma Plastilina and I really got a great deal on it here. I'm teaching a sculpture workshop this weekend and am using the #2 grey. I like the grey green color, because it doesn't show all the grub and dust that oil-based clay picks up. Also in our warmer weather, I like the #3 for keeping good detail.

Roma is number 1 in my book for large sculpts. It has a perfectly smooth consistency for easing detailing and smoothing. It is oil based so you must use a cap material for casting in rubber.

We are using this product for short run modeling. We have found this to be very stable and workable. Five Star
