Polymer Clay Snow Globe Water And Glycerin Test

DIY Snow Globe Test - Polymer Clay TutorVideo #755: The purpose of this test was to see how premo polymer clay holds up when submerged in snowglobe glycerin water.

I have always wanted to make my own polymer clay snow-globe, but before going to all the work of creating one, I had to be sure that my Premo Sculpey clay would not soften or become degraded in any way, when submerged in the water and glycerin solution that is used in DIY Snow Globes.

For this PcT Test Lab experiment, I sealed up some un-glazed polymer clay pieces in a jar of glycerine water for about 4 months.

In today’s video I will share my findings. I also discuss which glitters are best to use in your DIY Polymer Clay Snow-Globes.

    I’m interested in seeing how to make simple clay items to put into a snowglobe like that little owl as my things like that end up looking yucky as my grandchildren would say. I really liked this video.

    Hi Sandra, that little owl is from one of my paid tutorials called… Owl Charm Necklace

    He is quite simple to make and I think your grandkids would not think he was yucky! :)

    Hi Cindy!

    Do you have any tutorials on using flocking powder with polymer clay? Either applying with glue after baking or using liquid clay to adhere to a piece prior to baking?

    Thanks!
    Joanna

    I used flocking powder in one of my samples in the Snowman Bead Tutorial, but other than that, I don’t have a specific tutorial on just that subject.

    How cool! I guess this will be added to my To-Do-List! Here is a question for you. Can you put polymer clay items in a fish tank? If so, do they have to be sealed? And what sealer would be best? I have heard conflicting results and still not sure if it is safe for the fish. Thanks, Cindy, for another cool project!

    I would think PC decorations would be fine in a fish tank. They will not poison the fish but will grow algea in them just like ny other fish tank decoration. Not sure what would happen in a salt water tank.They would have to be heavy so they don’t float to the top.

  7. Cindy Lietz, 07 November, 2016

    Yeah, I think you may be right about that Anna, though since I haven’t tested it myself to see how it would effect fish, I doubt whether they would be any more harm than any other plastic item displayed in a fish tank. I would not use a sealer though, because that would have a chance of peeling off, long term in water.

    Recently I saw a miniature scuba diver made by polymer clay artist Garie Sim that would float and sink in the water. Maybe you (Catalina) should Google him and see if you can find where he posted about that? He may know whether polymer clay is safe in a fish tank with fish in it or not.
