Applying a protective coating or sealant to polymer clay creations is a common practice to enhance their appearance, durability, and longevity.
Benefits of coating polymer clay:
- Protection: A coating can protect the surface of the clay from scratches, fading, and wear.
- Shine: Coatings can add a glossy finish to the clay, enhancing its visual appeal.
- Effects: Different types of coatings, such as matte or satin, can create various textures and looks.
- Sealing: A coating can help seal in colors, prevent dust accumulation, and make cleaning easier.
When applying a coating, ensure that it is compatible with polymer clay and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for best results.
