Just today I made a bowl out of Sculpey Clay. It looks almost identical to a trumpet mouthpiece. I'm worried that lighting/burning the clay will release bad fumes (i had baked it in the oven for 15 mins at 275 degrees already, this is what the directions on the clay box said in order to make your clay hard). I went to my attic and lit the clay bowl and sucked through the bottom and a ton of smoke rushed into my lungs. I didnt think that was a good sign. Doesn't this happen if you burn like a homemade tin-foil bowl also? I need some sort of advice. Should i ditch it, is it perfectly ok, anything i should do to it to make it less harmful?

Here is a link to the sculpey clay box that i bought:

on the box it also warns and i quote:
"Sculpey Clay III should be used for decorative purposes only, not with food, beverages, or smoking materials."

Dude come on! If it says it right on the box not to use it as a smoking material, what do you think the answer is? Use some sense please.

In most instances, if something tells you on the box not to use it for smoking, you shouldn't use it for smoking. This is one of those instances. Im pretty sure you dont want to be smoking out of anything that lets of smoke on its own.

its prolly a bad idea to smoke out of a clay bowl that you made with homemade clay. The best would prolly be the professional clay that you fire in a kilm and glaze it cause that lets off no smoke of its own and has already pretty much been exposed to wayy more heat than u can ever do with a lighter

Too bad. You can make nice things out of clay, really customizable.
