THIS LIQUID POLYMER CLAY IS A BAKABLE TRANSFER MEDIUM FOR THE NEW MILLENIUM
- It opens a whole new arena for artists and crafters alike!
- When artist's oil paints are mixed with it, it can be an enamel, a glaze, or a backfilling compound. When pigments or mica powders are mixed with it, it can be a stipple, a metallic glaze, or a grout for polymer clay mosaics.
- Translucent Liquid Sculpey is a fantastic transfer medium, also it is a terrific adhesive agent. (See Sculpey.com project page) Its adhesive qualities are activated only after baking. It increases the clay to clay bond between raw layers of clay, and when adding raw layers to previously baked layers. Baking temperatures are similar to solid polymer clay, but translucence increases when the temperature is bumped to 300 degrees for a short period of time. This technique takes careful attention and a well calibrated oven!
You will find loads of tips and projects on the Sculpey web site.
