Does anyone know of any aquarium-safe oven bake clays? I love sculpting and I thought it would be awesome to make some aquarium ornaments for some tanks!
In additon, does anyone knoe of any aquarium-safe paint to paint said ornaments? (if I cant find any colored clays)

Fimo and Sculpey Clay are safe, for the last several years. They are PVC materials.
Fired pottery is completely safe. Fired glazes are safe with the exceptions of a couple made with heavy metals. Even then, your tank would have to be acidic to leach those.

Thanks for this thread. I was thinking about this today. I want to make some things for a shrimp bowl.
I picked some up today, we'll see how things go tomorrow or this weekend.
