What Is Liquid Polymer Clay?
Liquid Sculpey is just what its name implies — polymer clay in liquid form, sold in squeeze bottles. This liquid also makes an excellent bakeable polymer clay glue to enhance the bond between other pieces of clay. When cured with heat, liquid polymer clay mimics its solid counterpart and forms a flexible yet solid mass.
While liquid clay bakes in entirely the same way as regular polymer clay, it behaves differently from its solid counterpart. The fluidity and flexibility of liquid polymer clay mean that it's best used with a mold.You can also use this polymer clay with other types of Sculpey clay. With a twist cap that allows you to control the flow and volume with precision, our liquid polymer clay can fill an entire mold or add detailed accents to any piece.
