If you’re anything like me, you’ve never been one to follow the directions on the label. If I have trouble, sure, but most of the time I just wing it. But sometimes it really does pay to read the label and follow the directions.
Did you know that liquid clay will often settle while it sits on the shelf?
All brands do it to an extent, but Sculpey Clear is notorious for doing this! If you don’t stir it up, you’ll find the top part is runny and the solids will be at the bottom. Just give it a stir. If you don’t, you’ll likely find that your project isn’t as clear as you’d hoped or will be brittle after baking. There’s a reason they tell us to stir it, right on the label. 🙂
You can use a paintbrush handle, popsicle stick, knitting needle, or whatever you have handy (read more about cheap tools here). I have noticed that it separates so fast that just rolling it occasionally like with other brands does not keep it mixed well enough.
Stir it every time to save yourself some trouble!
