Floating Polymer Clay Test: Covering Water Filled Frozen 
Balloon, Cork, Aluminium Foil And Ultralight Clay Armatures 
With Polymer Clay
      



Covering the clay over the frozen balloon.


Wrapped polymer clay over water filled frozen balloon


Wrapping aluminium foil with Ultralight polymer clay


Wrapped UltraLight polymer clay over eggl shape aluminium foil armature


Baking both PC covered and UltraLight  covered armatures. Baking time 
45 minutes at 130ºC.


Collapse baked polymer shape balloon filled armature after baking.


 Ultralight covered aluminium armature, floats even better on water, after baking


Premo silver polymer clay covering over aluminum foils and wine cork


Preparation to cover The baked Ultralight clay ball 


You can apply liquid polymer clay on the Ultralight ball before covering


Test sample ultralight ball wrapped with Premo clay


Test shows the bake ball floating in water


You can used all types of polymer clay to cover aluminium armature


With regular polymer clay over aluminium armature and it will still floats

CONCLUSION

I have conducted quite a number of experiments to float polymer clay on water,
the best material to use are soft aluminum foils and Ultralight armatures. Covering 
the aluminium armatures with Sculpey UltraLight Polymer clay will floats better.
