Has anyone used the Art Glitter Institute's fantasy film on their clay? Their Youtube video shows that it can be ironed on a 'silk' setting (under parchment paper), but it looks so thin (very much like cellophane) that I wondered if it would just melt all over the place in an oven. Or even let off toxic fumes.

I spoke to a rep at the firm who is sending me some samples to test (she was not sure of the answer - and her film 'guru' was not available), but I have a new oven and I don't want to either destroy my oven or release toxic fumes.

Thanks!

I have used it but never put it in my oven. It is very thin .. and to use it like they suggested ironing it on a stamp I layered it three times used the parchment and ironed for just a few seconds. it melted pretty quickly. Not sure how it would hold up in the oven. I don't know anything about the fumes cant help you there. I have a small piece left and I want to play with clay today so maybe I will try it

Dear Fatalee:

Good luck! I hope nothing bad happens with your experiment!

I'm thinking maybe I can put a few small pieces into the clay and then bake it, as opposed to layering a sheet over the top of a flat piece...as I thought I might do.

Thanks for your reply, too!

I've used it many times but never baked it with the clay. I use it with baked clay and resin. I doubt it would melt all over your oven. but it can burn up. although 275 is not really a very high temp so it might be ok. sounds like you'll just have to try it...

If it's the same stuff, I have never baked it, only used it for fairy wings, glued to a wire armature and then zapped with a heat gun. It melts with the heat gun, but that sucker gets to 800 degrees F, if I remember right...

I have used Fantasy Film on both baked and raw polymer clay and baked it in the oven, but only with a coat of liquid kato over it to protect it. Otherwise, it does melt and distort terribly. I made lots of bookmarks with it, and with the fantasy fibers.
