How to apply powdered pigment to polymer clay
Hi all. I've decided it would be really cool to create my own tess out of polymer clay (then I can completely control the color, size, texture, ect.). I had a problem that I'm hoping someone here might be able to help with (also posted this on the clay forum but it looks like there is not much activity there).
I got some sparkly powdered pigment to apply to my polymer clay. I tried brushing the pigment on and then baking. The good news is it looks great. The bad news is that when I touch the piece, even after baking, I get the pigment all over my hands and clothes.
So the next time I tried first applying sculpey glue, then the powdered pigment. Again, I baked, it looked great, but when I touch the piece, even after baking, I get the pigment all over my hands and clothes.
Does anyone have any advice on how to apply the pigment so it doesn't rub off after baking? Thanks!
