Topics Covered In This Video:
- Comparison between 4 Brands of Translucent Polymer Clay:
- Sculpey III Translucent
- Premo Sculpey White Translucent (5527)
- Fimo Effects Transparent White
- Kato Polyclay Translucent
- Sample chips of all brands rolled out to two different thicknesses:
- 1 playing card thick and
- 6 playing cards thick
- All samples baked for one hour at recommended temperature for each brand:
- Sculpey III @ 265F
- Premo @ 275F
- Fimo @ 230F
- Kato @ 300F
(To be fair, I haven’t tested the longer baking times with Kato, so the 1 hour may have been a detriment to strength rather than a benefit like it is with Sculpey III, Premo and Fimo. Further testing needs to be done to find the ideal baking time for Kato Polyclay.)
- Comparisons were made with each brand on the following properties:
