Avoiding air bubbles and peeling is easy when you choose Sculpey® Gloss Glaze to enhance your clay creations.
Stir the clay glaze gently and refrain from shaking the bottle to prevent air bubbles. Air can entrap itself in the liquid if Sculpey® Gloss Glaze is too thick. Then add a few drops of water and stir. Next, retwist the cap onto the glaze and let it sit for about an hour. If the glaze is still too thick, you can repeat the process with additional drops of water.
When you want to avoid peeling, apply two to three thin coats. Sometimes, a single thick coat will not form an evenly distributed film onto the clay surface. Moisture can accumulate beneath the surface and cause your project to peel if you leave any voids, so it's always best to apply more than one coat of clay glaze.
