Topics Covered In This Video:
- Lately we’ve been talking quite a bit about the topic of how to avoid leaving fingerprints on your polymer clay.
- There may be times when you find flaws such as fingerprints and shiny spots after your beads or pieces have been baked. You can remove them easily, by using 100% Acetone.
- Acetone can be found in some paint stores and automotive finishing departments. It can also be found in some nail polish removers though it may not be strong enough to use for this purpose.
- Use Acetone on a Q-Tip to rub and erase any flaws on your baked polymer clay. It works by ‘melting’ the plastic and smoothing out the surface.
- Acetone is highly flammable, toxic, has strong fumes and evaporates very quickly.
- Use only in well ventilated areas and keep away from open flames or any heat sources.
- Also it is extremely important to keep away from children and pets. Use with CAUTION and at your own risk.
- It is always good to avoid getting flaws such as fingerprints on your beads and polymer clay projects in the first place, but acetone does work very well at removing them when the need arises… like in those difficult to sand nooks and crevices.
