Tinted Liquid Sculpey Polymer Clay (Gold & Silver)

Tinted Liquid Sculpey Polymer Clay (Gold & Silver)

Hi guys, its Cindy Lietz, your Polymer Clay
Tutor, and today’s PcT Product Demo, we are talking about Gold and Silver Liquid Sculpey
clay. So this is a new product from Sculpey, it
is basically a tinted or colored liquid Polymer Clay that you can use in all kinds of different
cool ways. And I’m just gonna show you a little bit about
it, and some other options and things. Now, like I said, it’s a liquid Polymer Clay,
it’s basically…it’s basically the exact same product as the Sculpey Liquid…or Translucent
Liquid Sculpey…I always say that in a funny order, also known as TLS, and then it has
either Gold or Silver metallic Mica powder in it or something along that line. So let me just show you what it looks like
when you squeeze it out of the bottle, and then I’ll show you some baked samples. So basically it’s just the same liquid as
that only colored, and you can see it’s got quite a metallic property to it, it’s very
shiny, and you can use it like I said, in lots of different ways. Now here are some baked samples of it, I baked…it’s
the first two here not these two… these two are some alternatives that I mixed up
myself, but these two here, this is the Gold and this is the Silver, and you can see when
you bead it up and then it’s baked in the oven, it will hold its shape, so I just drew
a line with it like I did on the glass there, and then when I baked it, it just stayed like
that, it’s not super runny, so it doesn’t just spread out a long ways or anything, this
is also a little a dot that I made of it, and this is a little smear of it. Now I’ll show you the translucency of it,
okay, I’m gonna grab a little blade and peel these up, the translucency of it is quite…like
it’s quite translucent, only it’s got the metallic Mica powders in it, and so at different
angles it will look less translucent, and depending on how thick you have it will be
either more opaque or more translucent. The Silver is the same sort of idea, and depending
on its thickness, and how…you know, how you’ve spread it out and what you’ve put
it on will depend on its translucency, and it’s quite opaque and kind of a matte finish
when it’s thick, you can sand it and buff it and get it come to a high shine. I baked these at 275F for 30 minutes, it’s
quite strong…so I’ll pull it off the glass here, it’s quite strong; it’s the same as
the Translucent, so you could use it for wings and all kinds of different types of projects. Now, like I said, I’ve got some alternatives
to this as well, if you can’t find it or it’s hard to…or if you would like to have lots
of different colors, I took some of the Translucent Liquid Sculpey, just the plain stuff, and
I mixed it with some PearlEx powders. Now I had it in Gold, my Gold is not quite
the same color as the Sculpey Liquid Gold is and my Silver’s a little darker, but they
worked out to be the same type of product which was very interesting to me, which means
that you can mix any of the Mica powders in if you like and get the same sort of idea,
you’re getting the same sort of metallic properties, and the same sort of translucent level, and
that depends too on how much of the PearlEx powder that you mix in, but you could do that
of course with any of the different PearlEx powders in any of the colors, which I hadn’t
even thought about doing until I saw the colored liquid Sculpey. Now you can also use this kind of metallic
liquid clay in other ways, you can pour it into molds and things, now Sculpey also has…they
also have these Silicone molds that are bakeable, not all Silicone is bakeable and not all rubber
molds are bakeable, but some are, and this one…these happen to be, and these are the
bakeable Silicone molds, this is the bezel shape, and you can pour the liquid clay into
the mold and get little clay bezels, now it’s an interesting way to use this, it’s actually
easier in a lot of respects, because you don’t have to try to press in the clay and then
try to trim off the back or anything, you just pour it in to the level…right up to
the surface here, so it has a full amount, so this was…and then it was baked right
in the mold, so I poured in the Silver Clay…or the Silver Liquid Sculpey, poured it right
into the bezel, try to get it as smooth on the back as possible, and then baked it right
in the mold. I also baked this Gold one here in this little
teardrop shape, the inside…if you’re wondering what the inside is, I’d put a little bit of
the regular Translucent liquid Sculpey into the base after it was baked…so let’s see,
if I had this one here, I’ve put a little puddle of it in there, and then sprinkled
some glass glitter in, and it gives kind of a Faux Druzy sorta look to it. Now take a look at this Silver one, one of
the issues that can happen is, if you have a lot of bubbles in the liquid when you pour
it in here, you can end up getting little bubble marks on your pieces, so really watch
for those, this would be hidden by whatever you put on the inside. This is another one of the Sculpey molds…if
you ever wanna see these demoed, let me know in the comment section and I can add it to
the list of future ones, but this is the cabochon mold that Sculpey makes, which I made this
little doughnut, it is the corresponding size to the bezel, and then you can see it fits
right in there, and then you can put like a gem in there or whatever you wanted to,
so that’s an interesting thing. Now, another thing I did was I went recently…this
little while ago, we went kayaking, and on the beach of the lake were these fresh water
snail shells, and I made a little Silicone mold out of the snail shells, and then poured
some of the Gold liquid Sculpey into the mold and this is what popped out. Now, they’re really neat looking, you could
use these little pieces for earrings, you could set them in little shaker pockets…you
know, the scrap bookers make those little shaker pockets, you could put it onto frames
and all kinds of stuff. So you could really use these liquid…these
colored Liquid Sculpeys or one of the Liquid Sculpeys that you made yourself mixing it
with the different PearlEx powders or chalks or that kind of thing in molds as well. And I like I said before there, you do wanna
really watch for any air pockets, this one here I ended up getting a fairly large air
bubble in it, and so the mold didn’t turn out perfectly, but some of these other ones
turned out really, really well. One last thing, I just wanted to say that
as far as the colors go, it looks to me like Polyform has used the exact same Mica powder
in the liquid clay as they do for the 14 Karat Gold Polymer Clay and the Sculpey Gold metallic
paint that’s in the silk screening kit, it looks like exactly the same color Gold, and
then the Silver is similar to the Silver clay and the Silver paint, so I just thought I’d
point that out, I noticed it when there were some stuff sitting around the desk that they
were all the same color, so I’m pretty sure it’s the same colored Mica powder, and in
fact it was that, that made me think of mixing the PearlEx powders into the liquid clay. So I hope that was interesting for you, and
I hope you liked this video, do let us know if you did. And if you got any products you would like
us to test, ideas you want me to share with you or techniques that you just don’t quite
understand, then make sure you check through our hundreds of videos and see if we’ve got
an answer there for you, if not, leave a suggestion and maybe I can make a video for you in the
future, alright? So we’ll see you next time and bye for now.


  1. Cindy…how did you make the silicon mold?? I have colored TLS, for a long time, hmmmm guess I should have "patented this, idea :/ DANG IT, ALWAYS, a day late and a dollar short 🙁

  2. I was told to use the sculpey baking silicone molds warm when using them with the silver and gold liquid sculpey. I put my molds in the oven @ 275 for about 10 minutes and then take them out let them cool a little bit and then pour the liquid clay into them, I have never had an air bubble when doing it this way. It also makes it perfectly smooth. I would love to see a tutorial on the makins clay conditioner with the motor attachment. And if there are other motorized clay conditioners or pasta machines, maybe a comparison video. Thank you Cindy, I have learned so much from you and other clay artists since becoming a mermber.

  3. I wonder if, after filling the mold, you were to raise it up about 4"-5" and drop it several times on the counter if the bubbles would rise to the surface.  I do this with cakes before baking and it works quite well.

  4. Cindy, thanks for the demo–it was pretty thorough. Those mica powders come in various shades of gold so maybe one of them would be closer to what Sculpey is using. I would also love to see you do a video on those Sculpey molds. I have them and I think the liquid polymer would be great in them. Also, have you compared Sculpey's liquid clay with Kato's? That would be interesting to see as well.

  5. Thank you Cindy for the very helpful informations!! Would love to see a video on those molds, thank you very much! Liz x

  6. I wonder if taking a drinking straw and blowing on the liquid sculpey would cause the air bubbles to dissipate like it does with resin?

  7. Can you tell me what the model number is on your Atlas Pasta machine? My old Amaco is starting to slip and is a real pain to take apart to clean.

  8. sculpey should have made a really "Transparent" liquid clay like fimo gel instead of these products. I just feel I can make something similar to this with tls

  9. Cindy, the air pockets can be beneficial to the design, by adding TLS with bronze, or copper mica powders, filling them up and re baking.   It would be, a wonderful way to vary the molded pieces, and make them look unique! I have added mica powders to TLS to coat my finished bottles of hope, to give them a, iridescent quality and the effect was really unique! Great Video!

  10. Cindy I have a bunch of silk paints left over from old projects so my question is….have you ever tried that with polymer clay? Think I'm gonna try it anyway, but just thought I'd ask. thanks

  11. I have embossing powders to use with a heat gun(from rubberstamping) can I add those powders to TLS, since they are ment to be heated anyway I would think it would work kindof the same way? I already have both so I wanted to try it but wanted to know if you've tried it b4?

  12. is it ok if you mix crayola paint into white scupley? i want colored scupley but my mom and dad wont buy it what can i do too color it ?

  13. Ive wanted to buy fimo deco gel for a long time but it does cost quite a bit of money and so I turn to Kato liquid polyclay I heard its suppose to be the same but I was wondering when I color it with pastels once baked will it be milky ? Like how TLS works? Or will it baked clear like fimo deco gel since I want to make a translucent chocolate glazed but TLS once mixed with pastel will turn to chocolate frosting . PLEASE ANSWER! thank you

  14. Thanks I like these, I had an idea you can always drop little dots of the tls intothe air pockets and rebake to fill them in 🙂

  15. I have a plaster stature that had a large hole in the base. I didn’t have any plaster mix, so I filled the hole with air dry clay. I’m not sure if it was wise to do that, but it does seem to be holding and hardening well after 3 days. It still feels slightly soft and I’m not sure how long to let it dry, before I should start painting it. Do you have any suggestion on how I should continue? By they way, the clay is white, and I’d like to paint it bronze. 😧help!
