COLOUR MIXING

The flat roller section of a heavy duty Pasta Maker is excellent for colour mixing and forming thin sheets.
Partial mixing makes stunning marbled effects.  Use translucent as a colour extender.  Also marbelize with other colours for natural stone effects.   The sheen of the colours pearl and gold improves during the hardening process.   Coloured pearlised effects can be obtained by mixing with any hue colour or black.  The mixing ratio should not exceed 1 part colour to 2 parts pearl or gold.   Avoid adding white or light colours as this spoils the glisten.


MODELLING

Work on a flat baking tray or baking paper.  Start by kneading Du-Kit to make it more pliable and soft. Further softening can be done by adding a little baby oil if necessary.

Impressing Of Patterns:
Moisten both Du-Kit and pattern with water for easy mould release.

Large Models:
These are best formed around a framework/armature (wire netting, foil, florist wire, modelling grid etc).  Cover with a base layer of Du-Kit to approximate shape, impress with surface indents, then bake.  Apply Du-Kit colours and details to the indented base surface and re-bake.

Complimentary Materials:
Stones, sand, driftwood, shells, copper wire, leather etc can be used to great effect.

Storage:
Years of shelf life when wrapped in plastic at room temperature away from the sun and other heat surfaces.

Gift Packs:
Du-kit is also available in a gift pack.   This contains six smaller blocks of Du-Kit and is ideal as a present for the young modeller.  Item # 2343001


MODELLING TOOLS

Eight modelling tools per packet. Each pack contains four double ended tools with round and flat heads for styling.  Tools are made of stainless steel.

HARDENING

Place moulded items on baking paper, tray or foil.  Du-Kit cures/hardens in a pre-heated household oven (NOT A MICROWAVE), at approximately 120oC-130oC (250oF-270oF) for 10-20 minutes.  High temperatures can scorch and discolour.  Low temperatures do not cure properly.  When baking thick items, to avoid cracking, they are best started at a low temperature and slowly brought up to the full curing temperature, preferably in a fan bake oven.  Oven temperatures can vary.  Test with a small piece first.   If Du-Kit burns, avoid inhaling smoke.  Heat softens Du-Kit before it cures it hard.  Some items, especially those not built around foil or a frame/armature may need support in the oven with a ball of foil.  Items can be returned to the oven 2 or 3 times when adding extra parts, like arms and legs to models.


FINISHING

aints/Lacquers:
Most enamels bond well with the Du-Kit surface.   Preferably apply by brush or air brush rather than aerosol.  Some polyurethanes and other lacquers are unsatisfactory.  They crack, turn yellow or become permanently sticky.  Do not use nail polish.

Glues:
Super fast-setting glues are good for joining Du-Kit after curing.  Selleys Mulit-grip and two-part Super Strength three day Epoxy Resin are good for joining Du-Kit to other materials like metal brooch pins and magnets.  Five minute two-part glues are unsatisfactory.


"I have recently done a lot of tests on the different brands of Polymer Clay. Du-Kit performed very well in the comparative tests and, along with the Australian clay, Modelene, is the strongest of all the clays.
This is very good news for jewellery makers as most of the other clays are prone to breakages.  I found the 150oC baking temperature the highest recommended of all the clays worldwide, and I think this adds to the strength of the clay."
