Elvenwork Forum

This forum has been a way to provide a public exchange of questions and answers for polymer clay sculptors. But, as I said in my final post, there comes a time when all things must end. That doesn't mean the forum used as an archive has nothing to offer. Indeed it is still loaded with questions and answers that remain relevant and which are searchable! For that reason, I'm keeping it available, though no new posts can be added. If after searching the forum your question isn't addressed, Join me on to ask it. As always, you'll find me there as Katherine Dewey. Hope to see you there. --  Katherine

water mixable oils

I painted my baby with those water mixable oils. The paint dryes so fast it leaves marks and is very unenen.
I tryed using sculpey diluent or water but it is not better. Can anyone help me?
Thank you.( The doll is made of super sculpey )

Re: water mixable oils

Uneven coats of paint are most often the result of a poor quality brush coupled with paint that is unevenly mixed with thinner. A good sable brush or an air brush and paint that is the consistency of milk will yield the best results. This means applying multiple coats only after each is dry.
Hope this helps,
