1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Thinning Gilders Paste on: November 15, 2018 12:05:40 PM
I know Gilders Paste can be revived with mineral spirits.  But due to health reasons I was wondering if anyone has tried more natural ways to thin it and revive it.  Like can citrus solvent or pure gum spirits of turpentine be used to thin gilders paste?

First, acrylic paints don't need to be *sealed* if they're used alone since they're permanent paints. 
If they're exposed to a load of moisture over a longish time, especially from soaking, they can begin to loosen, but then so can most clear finishes/sealers since they're also those kinds of plastics.......... 

Thank you so much! I am saving all this info everywhere I can
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: What got you started??? on: October 24, 2017 10:40:22 AM
I've always admired clay craft I just never really got into it besides from when we tinkered with it in art class in school.

But what really set it off I think was when I was in a tiny coastal town beach and was out shopping in one of those touristy shops. You know the ones where there's like a million things crammed into the shop and they don't even hide that they are a touristy shop.  I was in there and found that they encouraged a lot of the locals to bring them stuff to sell and I ended up finding this hair stick that a guy made with polymer clay.  It was super rustic looking but it just sparked something in me and I've started tinkering with clay ever since.  It's been about 4 years now I think.

5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Premo clay sealants on: October 23, 2017 09:41:25 PM
So I've exhausted my brain cells trying to figure this out.  I sometimes need to seal my premo polymer clay when I paint them with acrylic paints.  As of late I had a few projects go awry and become tacky with the sealant I am currently using and would like to change it to something where the results won't be half tacky and the other half sealed.  I was told resin as a sealant works but so far not super impressed with the results. 

I am in need of something that isn't going to yellow, that isn't going to take days to dry/cure and can preferably be used indoors and can deal with daily things as the items I make are not considered low use items.  I live in Oregon and so far everything I've looked into needs everything to have perfect no rainy conditions and that is not going to happen any time soon.  Any ideas? Does a sealant like that even exist?
