Recently I got some questions about working with polymer clay. I love polymer clay but there are extra steps you have to go through when you want to add non-polymer clay additions (like the metal wings) you see on this piece. You need to bake everything...then reattach all extra parts with glue.
I have been using either Envirotex Lite or EasyCast to both "glue" my extra parts and to also glaze my final pieces.
I use a paint brush to apply a layer of my resin to the underside of any additions and then to the whole surface.
My wings are now permanently attached and I love that extra shine from the resin. The gold flecks I embedded in the clay are now visible too. My piece is stronger and will not shatter if dropped.
