Another Product Worth Having On Hand In Your Bead And Jewelry Making Studio:
Today I would like to pass along some cool information I got the other day from polymer clay artist and mad scientist extraordinaire… Valerie Aharoni.
I first introduced you to her a while ago. She is the one who came up with the technique of using parchment paper for doing polymer clay image transfers. If you missed that post make sure to check it out. Also be sure to read all of the comments that follow the article. Lots of great info!
Anyway… Valerie (aka Vaharoni) discovered a spray fixative/sealer that works wonderfully with polymer clay. It can be sprayed onto your polymer clay pieces to seal in photo transfers, powdered pigments, leafing pens, metal foils, metal leaf and anything that you don’t want rubbing off the surface of your polymer clay projects.
The product is called Preserve Your Memories II (PYM2). It was designed for the scrapbooking industry to seal inkjet photos, newspapers and other such items you want to preserve.
Personally I have not tried this product yet because it is difficult to have it shipped into Canada. However, I do have faith in Valerie’s recommendation. She is an experienced clayer and has done extensive testing with PYM2 on her polymer clay pieces. After 6 months there has not been any adverse effects on the clay.
If you try out this new product please do come back and let me know how it worked for you.
