    Whether you make sculptures, canes, models, beads, jewellery or abstracts, Translucent polymer clay by cernit should be a regular addition.

    If you havent heard of it before, Translucent Polymer clay in “easy terms” is polymer clay without the colouring.
    Although not possible to be completely glass like, translucent polymer clay will allow light through and show colours beneath – the thinner its rolled the more transparent the effect

    A few things you may not know or find interesting about cernit translucent polymer clay:

    1. Transparent polymer clay has the same baking time as standard cernit polymer clay, 110 – 130 ° centigrade for upto half an hour depending on the project in hand

    2. Transparent polymer clay – because it has the same baking time, can be mixed with all of the regular cernit polymer clay colours – often used by doll house makers it is fantastic for creating effects on miniature food such as lamb chops, lemon slices etc – mix translucent polymer clay with a regular colour and experiment to see the amazing differences.

    3. Polishing – When sanded with a fine paper such as wet and dry of varying grades, translucent polymer clay can be made to look very convincingly like gemstones. Opals, sapphires, ruby’s pearls the effects are simply amazing, the more you polish it the greater the depth that can be achieved to your piece. Some jewellery makers use polishing wheels or dremel type tools to speed up the process.

    4. Conditioning translucent polymer clay – As is it the same as regular cernit polymer clays, the conditioning process is exactly the same – translucent may take slightly less in fact as its consistency is sometimes slightly softer to the touch.

    5. Translucent polymer clay effects and inclusions – why not experiment and try inclusions in your project – with glitters and other objects that are suitable for baking you can mix them / coat them over your translucent polymer clay with great effect – i recently saw a lovely bead made by using a base ball layer of translucent, coated in iridescent metal flake then coated over with clear translucent polymer clay – when polished, the colours shone through beautifully and made a beautiful polymer clay pendant

    6. The internet is an amazing source of inspiration for many artists and students the world over – use google to perform a search like “translucent polymer clay” or “Cernit Polymer clay” and you will be amazed how helpful people the world  over are in showing you their work and taking the time to share their polymer clay techniques with us.

    Enjoy your translucent polymer clay ! – visit our store where you can buy it online!

    Is is like fimo?

    Well, if I had a pound for each time I was asked that at the Glasgow hobbycraft exhibition if be sunning myself in the Bahamas now!

    ” is it like fimo or sculpey polymer clay”

    Yes and no! I suppose it’s a “Hoover and Dyson” type question… They both do the same thing but with significant differences and end results !

    Yes – it’s a polymer clay, and it’s made in a similar way

    Some of the reasons why we chose to import and distribute Cernit polymer clay opposed to any other brand are:

    Cernit polymer clays have a “porcelain like” finish, this makes them excellent for jewellery and bead making amongst other things…. Although you can still sand, polish, drill and finish it exactly the same as any other oven hardened polymer clay.

    The range of colours offered by Cernit is HUGE!

    Strength…. Once baked Cernit is one of the hardest clays yet still retains a bit of elasticity – great for smaller work and edge details.

    Colour… Probably one of the real plus point here… Cernit polymer clays don’t leech colour onto the skin anything like some of the other brands… Reds and blacks can be particularly bad… Don’t get me wrong, it’s always a good idea to clean ur hands with a baby wipe I between colour changes to avoid colours mixing but generally the colour in Cernit polymer clay stays put!

    And…. It’s very competitively priced…. Some websites may advertise other brands cheaper… But in fact the extra cost is hidden in the post and packaging… Don’t take our word for it… Shop around!

    If you have any questions about polymer clay or Cernit… Don’t be shy… Drop us a line and we will do out best to help!

    Well, its a small world – and the news that the Clayground website is live certainly travels fast….

    It must have been the “free postage on all orders of cernit polymer clay” on all orders over £27.00 that grabbed the attention!

    As if that wasnt enough – our prices are already amazing – our clay is fantastic and our service is unparalleled, yes i guess that would cause quite a stir in the whitehouse!
