Lynn’s Presentation: Exploring Polymer Liquid Clay-Smeared, Stenciled, Stamped

Liquid polymer clay is just that, a liquid form of the solid polymer clay you know and love. There are a wide variety of surface techniques that you can do with liquid clay when using it with solid polymer clay. It could be a subtle use like adding a worn patina or finishing edges to more interesting applications such as stenciling, mark making and sgrafitto techniques. This presentation focuses on some of the basic characteristics of liquid clay. We will go over mixing colors, varying opacity and transparency, using on raw vs baked clay and some of the super powers of liquid clay that make it so unique.
