WHAT IS COSCLAY?

Cosclay is a plastic/rubber hybrid polymer clay that remains strong and flexible after curing. Unlike other polymer clays, Cosclay's unique flexibility confers lasting quality and strength that is suitable for endless applications. This includes stop-motion characters, articulated figures, miniatures, dioramas, One of a Kind (OOAK) sculptures and more. Cosclay allows the creation of very fine and delicate pieces without fear of breaking after curing, especially during transit. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. gif cosclay 1

PRODUCT FEATURES

High Resistance During the sculpture process, Cosclay has a degree of self-support resistance that holds her in place without taking off or sinking by her own weight. Even without internal support, many creations in Cosclay tend to maintain their shape quite well.

Comb resistance and cracking The same properties that contribute to the High Resistance of the previous point also prevent Cosclay from eating or cracking during baking.

No Shrinkage and No Expansion – Cosclay has been formulated to be resistant to shrinkage and expansion. Cosclay is a 100% solid with minimal compatibility. That means there is no loss or gain of dough during baking. What goes into the oven is what comes out.

High Level of Detail and TextureSome polymer clays offer flat levels of detail and texture after baking. Cosclay has been formulated to block every careful detail the artist puts into the piece.

High Flexibility and Strong Curing One of the most precious features of Cosclay is its flexibility. This formula has been designed to give incredible flexibility and strength to cured parts. These features give the artist confidence, knowing that delicate and intricate parts will not break or damage during handling or transport, especially when traveling long distances.

Long Useful Life In its original format, Cosclay has no expiration date. As long as you stay away from excessive heat, Cosclay can last for many years and can be worked and baked at any time. As an additional safety measure, we recommend keeping Cosclay wrapped in a clean container to prevent contamination by dust or debris.

Is it Plastic or Rubber? Well, the answer is that Cosclay is a bit of both, depending on the thickness of the piece to be cured. The thinner the baked piece, the more flexible and rubber-like it will be. On the contrary, the thicker the part, the less flexible and more similar it is to plastic.cosclay gif 2

Ease of Modeling and Mixing – Cosclay has been designed to have a smooth texture that blends and adheres to itself as well as other surfaces. For extra softness, it is recommended to apply alcohol with a fine brush to mix sharp edges and refine the surface. Cosclay can be worked with hand, metal modeling tools or rubber tip modeling brushes.

Can be Baked Repeatedly and Added to Another Piece – Formulated to withstand repeated baking cycles, Coscaly can be baked, added to another piece and re-baked numerous times without it drying or cracking, as long as the baking temperature is adequate.

Excellent Memory In fine enough sections to make the most of flexibility, Cosclay remembers its curing shape when folded or twisted and will return to it at the end. This works especially well for things like fingers and fine, long details.

Non-Toxic Formula – Cosclay is NON-Toxic and made entirely of safe components. It does not contain products or ingredients of animal origin, nor has it been tested on animals, making it Vegan-Friendly. Cosclay can be recycled by crushing cured parts and mixing them with fresh produce before baking, thus saving the product.

MODE OF USE

What is the ideal temperature for baking Cosclay? It is important to cure at 135 oC for at least 30 minutes by 6.5mm. thickness. If Cosclay heals at too low a temperature, it will have a weak curing and will break when folded instead of flexing and maintaining its shape. Because Cosclay is temperature sensitive, we do not recommend table plastic dome-style halogen convection furnaces, or small table roasting ovens. We find that this type of furnaces generate hot spots and uneven heating. While they can work for conventional polymer clays, they do not work well for Cosclay. The best type of furnace that provides the most uniform heating is a conventional domestic furnace, either electric or gas.

How thin can I do Cosclay? It can be made as thin or as thick as you want. The thinner the piece, the gummy it will heal and the thicker you make it, the more plastic-like it will be.

Can Cosclay be sanded or polished? Yes, you can, but because of its flexibility there is more surface resistance than a rigid part. Therefore, we recommend using a wet sanding technique to reduce surface drag. Some effort is needed, but Cosclay can be sanded and rectified with Dremel cosclayswamp motorized tools and cut with various precision manual tools.

Sometimes when baking Cosclay comes out steam, is it dangerous to breathe it? Steam is not considered hazardous, but it must be largely ventilated. Cosclay is made from all non-toxic ingredients. If you experience excess steam, you're probably baking the clay at too high a temperature. Check your oven with a secondary thermometer to make sure it's baking at the right temperature. Make sure you don't burn the clay and keep it away from all heating elements. Cosclay is a professional medium and is not designed for use by children and should only be used under adult supervision. Larger parts will sometimes generate more steam because there is a higher mass of material to cure. To reduce costs and use less material, we recommend using aluminum armor wire on a foil core. We do not recommend using any type of colored plastic tape or masking tape on aluminum foil, as colors can transfer and bleed into clay and ruin coloration. This can be especially evident with lighter colored clays.

I realize that when I make parts like limbs on wire armor, Cosclay doesn't seem to stick to metal. When I fold my piece over the wire, I can feel the clay sliding over the wire. How can I prevent this from happening? One of the best and easiest ways to prevent this is to wrap a thinner wire around the primary wire to give the cured clay a more uneven surface to hold it in place. Another method is to add a thin layer of epoxy clay to the sheet cover. Cosclay tends to adhere better to epoxy than metal. A couple of drops of heat-resistant Ciano adhesive also work well.

Cosclay cracks at some points after baking it. There are a couple of possible reasons. First, you may have used a very thick section of clay and overheated. When Cosclay overheats, he generates a vapor that tries to escape the clay body. The easiest way for steam to be released is to quickly push out generating a crack to easily escape into non-fully healed clay. The second is because the piece is baked once and then repositioned and baked again. When you do this, you're generating tension in the armor. Cosclay has memory, so when you bake it again, it softens and the bending areas exert force in the new position and a crack will form where the new curve is presented. To avoid this problem, do not bend your piece until after the final baking.

Can you paint Cosclay? Yes, it is. Cosclay can be painted with acrylics, cakes, polymer paintings and some urethanes.
