TESTING FIMO DEKO GEL AND TRANSLUCENT LIQUID SCULPEY

It is always fun to test new materials, especially in the area of polymer clay. My aim is to understand 
all the PC material better, creating new concept of using PC and testing them. I am referring to liquid 
polymer clay, two of the well known brands in the market are FIMO DEKO GEL and TRANSLUCENT 
LIQUID SCULPEY. 
Although, TLS is around for at least 2 years and FD Gel is about a year, it is still quite new to most PC 
clayers. Both are great PC mediums that will enhance our creativity in the usage of polymer clay. 
In fact, both can compliment or intermix together for the usage in any PC clay creation, eg. polymerized
tissue for scale modeling of clothing.
Below are some of my test and usage of liquid polymer clay.


 

Comparing the two Liquid PC, Fimo Deko Gel is translucent clear
before baking and the finishing is transparent gloss or semi gloss after 
baking. It also depends on the type of materials that is added to the 
Liquid PC. metallic powder, glass paint (Marabu Decorglas), etc. 
Deko Gel is more flexible, viscosity is thin but poor in laser copy 
transfer. Somehow the transfer stick very tightly onto the photocopy
 image. There are many application in using FD Gel, since it is 
transparent you can use it to varnish the PC clay model or jewelry,
 gluing PC parts to part, creating unusual bookmark to freeze nature,
 miniature food, landscaping, diorama and many others, curing 
the liquid to show someone drinking water with a glass cup, etc.

As for Translucent Liquid Sculpey, unbaked liquid clay is translucent 
white, after baking the finishing is matt or opaque depending on what 
is added to the TLS refer to above image. Viscosity is thick, expands 
after baking due to tiny air bubbles. For the purpose of testing TLS I 
had created a flat water patch, after about a month I notice my finish 
product warp and curl a little. TLS  can also be use as glue to joint 
bake or unbaked polymer clay products. The TLS fare better in transfer
of image from laser photocopy removing the transfer is easy, use for 
jewelry making, artcoaster, diorama mixed with acrylic paint.

CONCLUSION

 In my opinion, both liquid Polymer Clay are great creative mediums, the advantage of 
FIMO DEKO GEL over TRANSLUCENT LIQUID SCULPEY,  is transparent, very 
flexible and strong.
