Sealing polymer clay decorated with Pearl Ex
  • Hi--I made some polymer beads and decorated them with Pearl Ex before baking. I was under the impression that once baked, the Pearl Ex would adhere to the beads. However, it is still rubbing off of my finished beads. What do you recommend for sealing the beads so this doesn't continue? Thanks for your help.
  • Hi Karen,

    Well, you are right in assuming that generally Pearl Ex will adhere quite well to clay when applied prior to baking. Rubbing the Pearl Ex on is the best way to apply it.
    You might want to first rinse the beads before you go to the extent of sealing them - that may take care of the problem. If not then using the Pearl Ex Varnish will work well.
