Gold & Silver Tinted Liquid Sculpey Polymer Clay

Tinted Liquid Polymer ClayVideo #709: A new product from Polyform that adds some unique metallic properties to the Liquid Translucent Sculpey (TLS) family.

Today we are talking about Gold and Silver Liquid Sculpey Polymer Clay, made by Polyform, the makers of Premo.

This is a new product for Sculpey which is a metallic tinted version of Translucent Liquid Sculpey (TLS). This colored liquid polymer clay can be used in the same way as regular liquid polymer clay, for image transfers, molds, raised finishes, etc.

I demonstrate what the product looks like raw and baked, as well as show its strength and translucency.

I also talk about how you can mix your own tinted liquid polymer clay by mixing Translucent Liquid Sculpey (TLS) and PearlEx Powders so that you have an unlimited variety of color liquid clay.

Sculpey also has a new set of Bakeable Silicone Molds for Bezels and Cabochons that work well with the Gold and Silver Liquid Sculpey. You just pour the liquid clay into the molds and bake right inside. Watch out for bubbles in the liquid though, or you will end up with unsightly holes in your molded pieces.

On a side note, in regards to color, the Gold Liquid Sculpey appears to be exactly the same color as Premo Sculpey 14K Gold Polymer Clay and of the Gold Paint from the Sculpey Silk Screening Kit. Same goes for the Silver Sculpey Liquid being a close match to the Premo Silver Clay and the Silver Silk Screen Paint as well. This means you could easily color coordinate those three products in some way if you chose to.

    Quick note: the colored liquid clays work great as “grout” for mosaics. I used the silver colored one for a leaf shaped micro mosaic piece, looks great!

  2. Cindy Lietz, 23 November, 2015

    Awesome tip Krithika!

  3. Dawn B, 23 November, 2015

    Oh the possibilities! Thanks for the demo Cindy.

  4. Cindy Lietz, 23 November, 2015

    You are more than Welcome Dawn!

    Wow Cindy, really liked the demo of the TLS gold and silver and loved your clever ideas for alternatives. I am busy making hosts of mini Christmas trees for a client ( using polymer clay).

    The mailman has just dropped off my Snow Leopard costume. I will be wearing it, standing outside our community centre, selling finger lights to help raise money for the charity I support. I think it was made for a 6ft person, so will have to haul my sewing machine from the cupboard to alter it to fit. As I am only 5’2″ I am going to have to shorten the legs, but with the spare material I could make a little doggie jacket for Jessica, who is going to help me sell loads of lights. The Christmas lights in Leigh-on-Sea are being switched on this Friday, so we are just hoping it doesn’t really snow. Off now to check on my latest batch in the oven as the timer has just gone off……cheers xx……..

  6. Cindy Lietz, 27 November, 2015

    OMG Elaine I can just picture you and your dog in Snow Leopard costumes!! Doug and I will be on the next boat to England so we don’t miss it! :) I have no idea what finger lights are but good luck in selling tons of them. Have a wonderful Christmas… it sounds like you are well on your way!

  7. elaine faulks, 08 December, 2015

    Hi Cindy,
    Just read this comment from you. Finger-lights, slip on the end of your finger using a rubber band. I attached three to my walking stick (yep still hobbling around) Told the kids I got injured while out hunting for food! ha ha.
    Jessica had her fluffy coat decorated with these little lights. (Think ET with the blue light on the end of his finger). Some children bought 10, one for each finger. I told the parents they are great when the children come out of school on these dark nights. We practically sold out as Leigh was packed for the Light Festival. I know a lot of people but they only recongnised Jessica as it had taken me 2 hours to use my face paints to turn me into an “animal”. My niece was a marshall for the local council wearing her high vis jacket. We sang carols with the childrens choir and later with the Salvation Army band and had a lovely evening, and raised a lot for charity ~I will ask my niece to send some photos………………..cheers xx……….

  8. Cindy Lietz, 08 December, 2015

    Oh Elaine that festival sounds magical! What a delight you must have been in your animal makeup and all those little lights!! Please send pictures if you have any…

  9. Dixie Ann, 24 November, 2015

    Oh Cindy, I always enjoy watching you demo new stuff. Especially now when I am feeling so down, it just picks me up and gets me all excited again and I want to run around and see what my brain can come up with using it. I love the idea of making my own liquid mica clay, thinking of how it would look adding an interference mica powder to some of the colors. Hmmmm………..well here I go again!

  10. Cindy Lietz, 25 November, 2015

    Dixie Ann I am so sorry to hear that you are feeling down… :( Mucking around with your clay supplies should have you cheered up in no time! :) Go have fun and let us know what you end up making!

  11. Hermine R, 25 November, 2015

    Is it the same as the old formula they used to make before the phtalates?

  12. Dixie Ann, 25 November, 2015

    No, it’s the new formula. They don’t make the old one anymore. They haven’t for quite some time.

  13. Hermine R, 26 November, 2015

    I know Dixie! I still have of the old one. I just wondered why they discontinue a product to bring it back years later.
    Thank you for your answer though!

  14. Dixie Ann, 26 November, 2015

    If they had liquid sculpey before, it was probably made with the old formula. Now with the new colors and new formula, it’s only natural they would have it available. kato has a whole line of color liquid kato. I think that once Sculpeys becomes more popular they will probably increase their color line. Only time and Sales will tell. PC use is growing so fast, new products are coming out all the time either to use with the clay or to enhance, align or decorate it. It is amazing what has transpired in the last 10 yrs. alone. I personally spent my last 5 working years just dreaming of retiring and starting my Artistic journey down the proverbial PC Road. I was lost until I found Cindy and her website. Now it’s like Christmas everytime she demonstrates a new product for us. For me I don’t wonder why the old stuff is not around, I’m just looking forward to embracing the new! I think you will find Hermine that for any “old” or discontinued product we feel they are bringing back, It will have a whole “new” and much improved side to it. I hope you enjoy discovering it as much as I do! Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  15. Cindy Lietz, 27 November, 2015

    Wonderful comment Dixie Ann! You are so true about the incredible growth of this art medium over the last 10 years. I get more excited about its potential everyday!

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. As you know we had ours a month ago, so everyone around here is on to Christmas preparations. But now that Thanksgiving is over, you all will be gearing up for Christmas now too! :)

  16. Carrie Harvey, 26 November, 2015

    Thank you, Cindy! Yet another new product to tempt us…….
    The thin pieces looked so pretty! It looks interesting but the air bubbles look like a problem.

    Off subject, but is there a Facebook or Flickr group for member’s creations? I’ve often wanted to see what people have made but can’t find anything.

  17. Cindy Lietz, 27 November, 2015

    Hi Carrie, I haven’t had a chance to test it yet, but a follower mentioned to me that if you heat up the mold before adding the liquid clay to it, that you won’t get any bubbles in your pieces. (I’m guessing the warmth encourages the bubbles to rise to the surface or something.) Any way will have to test that one to be sure.

    In regards to a photo gallery of student projects, here is the link… Polymer Clay Tutor Facebook

    Hope to see some of your work there soon!

  18. Carrie Harvey, 28 November, 2015

    Thanks, Cindy – guess where l’m heading now!

  19. Carrie Harvey, 28 November, 2015

    I can’t see members’ photos there……:(

  20. Doug Lietz, 28 November, 2015

    Hi Carrie… that link works for me. What do you see when you click on it? It should take you straight to a long long scrolling wall of photos posted by PcT members. You can click on any photo in the gallery to see a larger version of the pic along with info about the member who added the image.

  21. Carrie Harvey, 28 November, 2015

    Hi Doug – l get a page called Polymer Clay Bead Making Tutorials – all the photos and posts are Cindy’s. At the top is a photo of clover flowers.

    I’ve just clicked on a right arrow on the line saying Visitor Posts and l get a gallery of students’ pics, quite big, with descriptions etc, which l can scroll down through. Success! Thank you!

  22. Carrie Harvey, 28 November, 2015

    Actually Doug – there are hardly any photos there after all – and a lot of rather obnoxious spam. Certainly not thè gallery you describe. I don’t understand it.

    I get more or less the same page when l use the search function on fb. Few posts, questions etc and the spam.

    Can somebody else try sending me a link? Thanks.

  23. Dixie Ann, 28 November, 2015

    Carrie I don’t know where you clicked but this link takes me directly to the photos page.

  24. Carrie Harvey, 28 November, 2015

    Thank you, Dixie Ann – l can’t understand it – your link goes straight to the same page of Cindy’s as before…the last visitor post is a pair of earrings from Karen Samuels posted just a few hours ago. After only a few posts they are all unpleasant spam.

  25. Doug Lietz, 28 November, 2015

    Carrie – It sounds like your web browser is getting hijacked. In other words, you may have a “bad” script that got installed without you knowing about it (from hackers), and that script is redirecting you to a page(s) that they want you to see… instead of the page you are trying to reach the actual PcT members gallery.

    If you the link works when you click on it while using a different web browser (i.e. Chrome, vs Firefox vs Internet Explorer), that will be a good indicator that you have been hacked.

    Of course the hacker script may affect any and all browsers you have installed on your computer, which would mean that the problem is not browser specific. But this would be the first step in trouble shooting the issue.

  26. Carrie Harvey, 29 November, 2015

    Thanks Doug.
    The link doesn’t work for a different browser either so there needs to be some cleaning up on my tablet by the look of it.
    I’ll have to get my pet expert on it (aka my son) next time l visit him!
    Thanks for your help.

  27. Bev Kennedy, 27 November, 2015

    Cindy — I have both of the gold and silver paints from the screen print kit, plus I have several bottles of TLS — do you think those paints might also be compatible with the TLS?

  28. Cindy Lietz, 27 November, 2015

    That I don’t know Bev. That would be something to test though. If there is a lot of water in the paint, it might cause some issues with bubbling and plaquing though you wouldn’t know for sure until you tried it.

  29. Carrie Harvey, 28 November, 2015

    Might the paint dilute the liquid clay and stop it curing properly?

  30. Cindy Lietz, 02 December, 2015


  31. Joy T, 27 November, 2015

    Hi, Cindy,

    I’ve use the TLS with the PearlEx powders to coat cabachons. It looks sparkly and shiny. I also wanted to update you on a question I asked a month or so ago about “the Best Glue Ever”. This product works with polymer clay temporarily. After about a month, the test pieces I did all came apart. It also seemed like the clay got brittle. So, I wouldn’t recommend it for polymer clay. It was amazing with the paper and fabric pieces though.

  32. Carrie Harvey, 28 November, 2015

    Hi Joy – which glue are you referring to? Not Gorilla, was it?

  33. Cindy Lietz, 02 December, 2015

    Hi Carrie, Joy was talking about a glue called “the Best Glue Ever”. Something I had not had a chance to test yet. Looks like it is not going to work anyway.

    Thanks Joy for coming back and sharing your results! And also, thanks for sharing your sparkling cabochon trick… sounds pretty!

  34. Cheryl H, 27 November, 2015

    Cindy, where is the liquid silver and gold clay available? I’m really disappointed with the stuff they have in Michaels. They have their own brand of clay and just a few blocks of the white, frosty etc and a few colors. All the other stuff they had for clay is gone too.

  35. Cindy Lietz, 02 December, 2015

    Hi Cheryl, You may have to order the Gold and Silver Liquid Clay online, I haven’t seen it in my Michaels yet either. Sorry to hear they are down sizing your Michaels clay aisle. I hope that they don’t do that in my store too…

  36. Ginny M, 16 December, 2015

    Hi Cheryl,
    My Michales here in Michigan has really downsized as well, I have been ordering on line. :(

  37. Laurie W, 28 November, 2015

    What a great idea to use the liquid clay with the molds! I am thinking that warming them up will help eliminate air bubbles. Thanks!

  38. Cindy Lietz, 02 December, 2015

    Yeah I bet it does work. Actually plan on testing that theory today.

  39. jane thomas, 29 November, 2015

    Hi Cindy, Another great video. Thank you. What is the work-around for the bubbles? Would a gentle stir with a toothpick make it worse or better? Is Amazing Mold Putty Bake-able?
    I enjoy all of the comments and appreciate the great reviews and tuts. Thank you!

  40. Cindy Lietz, 02 December, 2015

    Hi Jane, I did try jiggling the bubbles out by placing it onto vibrating shoulder massage machine and it may have helped but I did still get a few bubbles. I hear warming the molds in the oven first helps, which I plan to test today.

    As far as Amazing Mold Putty being bankable… that I do not know either… yet. Something that can probably be looked into online.

    Thanks for your comment! I am glad you are enjoying it here!

  41. Dixie Ann, 02 December, 2015

    Cindy, in reference to the new Sculpey bezel molds. The two part ones, can you use resin in them and put them in the lamp? I ask because I have had a request for a rose gold bezel and I thought it would look neat if I used some of the colored glass with resin in the matching stone to mimick a druzy and then glue it in the pc bezel. The resin would hold the pieces together but will it pop out of the rubber mold once I have finished? Please advise, thanks Doll.

  42. Cindy Lietz, 04 December, 2015

    Hi Dixie Anne, yes you can use resin in silicone molds, no problem. I have a video coming out next week that shows a sample of this… I used the UV Resin in a different kind of silicone mold, but they all will work. You need to make sure if you’re using UV Resin that the light can get all the way through though, so i you do the druzy thing, you’ll have to put the colored glass in the mold first then pour the resin on top then cure. After removing from the mold, you might need to cure it some more outside the mold… just flip it over so the light can get at the other side. Hopefully that makes sense.

  43. Dixie Ann, 04 December, 2015

    Thanks Cindy, I thought I would cure the glass pieces in layers so that all of it got cured completely. I just didn’t know if it would seperate from the mold when finished.

  44. Doreen Neilley, 04 December, 2015

    Thanks for thinking of mixing the Pearlex into the plain TLS! I have both of those, and can’t afford to buy any more supplies at the moment, with the way things are in Alberta at the moment, so you have saved me from sitting here going “boo hoo, I can’t try this!” :)

    I haven’t seen anything for a while about the new web site (I might have missed seeing some things). Are you on track to have it up in January?

    Will you be able to take PayPal payments for memberships? Mine comes due on January 16 (it’s really only a year since I bought my membership??!! I have learned SOOOOO much since then!!), and I have had my online use credit card hacked twice in the last year, so am very leery of using my new card online, but I do have a PayPal account.

    Here’s hoping you and your family have a lovely, happy, safe, and healthy Christmas / Hannukah / Kwanza or whatever you celebrate.

  45. Doug Lietz, 05 December, 2015

    Hi Doreen… no firm eta on when the new site will be fully ready… but please now that we are working hard behind the scenes to get er done.

    And yes we will be able to take PayPal.

    Happy Holidays to you too.

  46. Aims, 13 December, 2015

    How would this work in mokume gane as a layer of colour? Any ideas?

  47. Cindy Lietz, 14 December, 2015

    That is an interesting question Aims… I wonder if it just might make it a sticky mess layer though, since it wouldn’t be a solid layer until it was baked? I am trying to picture in my head whether that would work or not. Of course it wouldn’t hurt to test it… the worst thing that would happen is you would have to totally mix it into the clay, which would make it softer, but it wouldn’t ruin it. Let us know if you end up trying it. You have me curious now!

  48. Emily Hannan, 01 May, 2017

    Hello, I love your videos on YouTube. They are always helpful and I get some of my best ideas from your videos. I love working with Liquid polymer clay. I have had massive problems with bubbles in the liquid polymer clay. Today I think I might have solved the problem. I recently got some Clear Kato liquid polymer clay and decided to mix it together with Sculpey silver liquid polymer clay. There’s no bubbles after baking. If there is they are tiny and you dont even notice them. I think because Kato is so runny that bubbles can’t seem to form in it compared to Sculpey being so thick. Just thought this would help others that were in the same boat as me. Thank you, Emily Hannan

  49. Cindy Lietz, 02 May, 2017

    Thank you Emily for the tip! Some other things you can do is add a few drops of Sculpey Clay Softener… warm up the liquid in a bowl of warm water… tap the mold (if you’re using one) to get the bubbles to rise to the surface. Hope that helps!
