What I Use
These are some of the things I use for my crafts. I range from Sculpey III, Fimo Soft, Premo and Sculpey Ultra Light. I tend to stock in darker colours so that if I need it to be lightened, I use it with the Ultra Light (UL). I use it to mix it with the rest of the coloured clay to lighten the piece from its weight and to give it a lighter colour.
I also used to use Studio by Sculpey but I no longer touch it. It was horrible! The glaze would just peel off after a couple of months. I tried using various lacquers, but it all ends up either being sticky or changes colour. I'm having a go at Varathane Diamond Floor Finish at the moment, so hope that goes well. It's been three weeks since I started using it, and I threw some pieces with a thin layer, thick layer and one with an old coat of Studio Sculpey under it into my lil brother's school bag. Whatever goes in there gets destroyed, so if Varathane comes out clean and still nice after two months, WE HAVE A WINNER!
