12th July 2007, create pattern on the clay with texture sheet, oven
bake to dry the clay.


12th July 2007, mixing about 50% of Makin's clay and 50% 
Fimo polymer clay


12th July 2007, mixed well and baked in the oven at 130º C for 20 min.


12th July 2007, mixing of 50% Makin's clay and 50%  Sculpey 
Ultralight clay baked in the oven at 130º C for 20 min.


12th July 2007, mixing about 50% Makin's clay and 50% Sculpey 
Premo


12th July 2007, it mixed well and flatten it with a pasta machine


12th July 2007, Makin's and Premo clay creations is baked in the oven 
at 130º C for 20 min.

12th July 2007, Display of baked clay creations.


12th July 2007, Baked mixture shows flexibility.


12th July 2007, Soaking the cured and baked clay in the water, 
time: 2.30 pm, mixture with Ultralight clay floats. Initially Makin's 
mixture floats, eventually the mixture  sank  to the bottom.


14th July 2007, Mixing about 50% Makin's clay and 50% Sculpey 
3 polymer clay.


14th July 2007, Mixed clay


14th July 2007, The mixed clay creation is baked in the oven 
at 130º C for 20 min.



14th July 2007, After baking the clay is slightly inflated.


14th July 2007,  Meanwhile, the soaked Makin's clay mixed with metallic 
powder is deteriorated after 48 hours in the water.


14th July 2007, As for the rest of MC/ PC mixtures they are still in good 
condition, time: 2.30 pm.


17th July 2007, Soaking it further, time: 10.56 pm


17th July 2007, Condition of Makin's / Ultralight mixture in water

2nd August 2007, Slicing Makin's/Ultralight Mixture 



2nd August 2007, After slicing Makin's/Ultralight Mixture, it looks
spongy inside


2nd August 2007, Slicing Makin's/Premo Mixture, it looks more
compact inside


2nd August 2007, Slicing Makin's/Fimo Mixture, it looks more
compact inside



The above tests by mixing Makin's clay with the various types of polymer clay, 
resulted in the fusion of a new clay mixture that can be baked in the oven at 130º C. 
Subsequent aqua test shows that all the mixtures were able to retain its shape even 
after prolong immersion in the water, with the exception of the Makin's mixture with 
metallic powder. Since, Makin's clay is only just an air dry clay, soaking the clay 
directly in water will cause the clay to deteriorate and wash away in the water.
