Poly Paste Techniques

Poly Paste is one of the most unusual products in the polymer clay world. Because of its thick viscosity, it will not run. It is also a polymer clay, making it unlike any other adhesive out there. These special properties make this medium useful in more ways than one.

 

This product's primary use is as an adhesive. After curing, adhesion is permanent. Polypaste can be used to bond polymer clay and finished Liquid Polyclay elements in any combination.

 

Polypaste is extremely malleable. This makes it great for creating textured surfaces and embossing.

 

Polypaste is perfect for filling in and repairing cracks in other polymer clay pieces.

 

Gilding can be achieved when Polypaste is mixed with mica powders.

 

When clay is difficult to condition or when a softer clay is desired, Polypaste can be used as a softening agent.
