Repel Gel Techniques

 

Repel Gel is a medium created to keep polymer clay from sticking to itself. This property makes it useful in many projects.

 

Repel Gel is ideal when creating luggage tags and picture frames.

Pouches and bags can be difficult projects because the middle (where you would put things) tends to get stuck together when your clay is being cured. Repel Gel is perfect for preventing this unwanted adhesion.

When fringe, loops, and braids get stuck to each other, it can distort their different pieces. To prevent these problems, Repel Gel can be applied to each piece during the creation process as well as while curing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A crackle paint effect can also be created with Repel Gel when combined with tempera paint.
