Hi, EatFish.  I don't know the answer to your question, but it can probably be found on Diane B. 's webpage The Glass Attic.  Diane B. is a nice lady that posts and watches on Craftster and she knows a lot about polymers!  Hope this holds the answer for you!

I use Sharpies, or a very fine point pen on baked clay and I haven't had any problems with wear and tear.  I write whatever I want, then pop the piece in the oven for a few minutes to set the ink...I guess.  I don't know if I'm really setting it, but I'm all superstitious about it now Smiley

Hi,

Some inks and pens work better than others on polymer clay! 

Check out this page at my site (GlassAttic, mentioned above Grin) for more details on which ones work and which have problems, etc.:

(...click on "Inks for Writing"...)


HTH,
