Polymer Clay tile backsplash, please help.

dabunchAugust 4, 2009

Has anyone used tiles made out of Polymer Clay in their kitchen backsplash?

Pardon my ignorance, but do those tiles last,without chipping or changing color? I have no experience with longevity of a Polymer Clay project.

I'm in the process of making six 3-D, 2x2 inserts out of Sculpey III. Those should not get any splattering, or heat.

I would like to make one, 6x6, to go directly behind the stove. THIS one I'm concerned about. For a final step, I was planning on using STUDIO by Sculpey glossy glaze and bake it afterwords. I want to make sure the tiles are as strong as possible. I hope I don't overdo it.

Anyone know if I would have a problem with this?

The rest of the backsplash will have ceramic and glass tiles. I know those are durable.

I'll try to post pictures later, If I can learn how-lol
