Polymer Clay Sealers From Sculpey®

Polymer clay satin glaze from Sculpey® produces a highly lustrous, clean finish and is perfect for coating all baked Sculpey® products. This air-drying acrylic glaze will finish your clay creations with a smooth, matte glaze, and you can thin it using water.

Sculpey® Satin Glaze is a highly sought-after polymer clay sealer known for covering imperfections and offering a compatible surface for colored clay paints and finishes.

What Is a Polymer Clay Glaze?

A glaze or varnish is a coating that many clayers use for their polymer clay pieces. Glaze seals any paint on your clay creations and lends more durability to your projects. It can also give your piece a beautiful shine if you use a glossy glaze.

High-Quality Polymer Clay Sealer for Your Projects

At Sculpey®, we strive to provide all the tools you need to unleash your creativity, whether you're working on a homemade gift or preparing for an art project. Our Sculpey® Satin Glaze is the perfect final touch to your creations, thanks to its:

  • - Ease of use: A twist cap allows for more control over where you apply the coating.
  • - Versatility: Our products work well with any acrylic, water-based finish or paint. These glazes are also compatible with all of our oven-bake clays.
  • - Durability: With our polymer clay sealer, you can preserve your clay design's unique qualities for a long time to come.

Six Tips for Glazing Polymer Clay

When you want to glaze your polymer clay pieces, make sure to:

  1. Stir the glaze gently and be careful not to shake the bottle. This action can help prevent air bubbles from forming.
  2. If your glaze is too thick, try thinning it with water. Add a few drops, then let the glaze sit for an hour. Repeat this until you get the consistency you want.
  3. Hang your clay creation by a hook instead of allowing it to lay flat to dry. Find a small piece of steel wire, then make a small hook on one side and a larger hook on the other using tweezers.
  4. Avoid paint smudges while glazing. You should always ensure your paint is completely dry before adding a glaze.
  5. Glaze your polymer pieces two or three times. On the first try, use a brush to go over the painted area very carefully. Then, use a thicker coat the next one or two times you use our polymer clay satin glaze. This method prevents your glaze from peeling.
  6. You should test your glaze before applying it to the entire piece, because some art mediums may cause your clay to become sticky.

How Do You Glaze Polymer Clay Charms?

The best way to glaze your clay charms is by using a brush. Ensure you rinse your brush off after each use and simply coat your charm with glaze like you would with paint. Next, let your piece dry by hanging it in an area that's clean and well-ventilated for about four hours.

Because the glaze may collect at the bottom of the charms, use a clean tissue to lightly dab this clay area as the charms hang to dry.

Keep in mind that glazing your piece is not necessary — it's entirely up to you and what you'd like to do with your charm. You can also choose to only glaze certain parts of your project if you want that shine on some areas and not others.

What's the Difference Between Sculpey® Satin Glaze and Sculpey® Gloss Glaze?

The main difference between Sculpey® Satin Glaze and Sculpey® Gloss Glaze is their respective finishes - glossy or satin.

What Else Can I Do to Finish My Clay Designs?

You can do more than seal your polymer clay! There are multiple ways to finish your polymer glaze design before you glaze it. Two of these techniques are:

  • - Buffing: Buffing is an alternative method for making your piece shine. It offers a soft glow that complements translucent or metallic clays.
  • - Sanding: Sanding is the way to go if you'd like to remove stray fingerprints and unwanted textures. If you plan to paint your clay, sanding also creates a texture that helps the paint adhere to the surface.

As with glazing, other finishing techniques are optional. Your Sculpey® creation features polymer clay that's naturally durable and eye-catching on its own!
