Hello,

I've just got myself some chameleon pens and used them on cured polymer clay. Love the results!

Can anyone please recommend the best glaze to use to seal the inks? I have Sculpey Satin Glaze and Diamond Flecto Varathane Varnish Gloss. Would any of these two work?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Cheers!

Hi

I have used Sculpey Glaze for Christmas tree ornaments.  Most of the reviews I have read are not favorable for the Sculpey Glaze.  I can not say that I have had a problem with it for what I use it for.   I am not sure how it would do with something that is touched often.

Thanks for your input mst01. I've decided to test both on a couple of pieces (the ones that didn't turn out as planned haha) and I agree with you. While the Sculpey Glaze didn't smear the colors, I much prefer Varathane. Since Sculpey is thicker than Varathane I kept thinking that it was going to smear the colors. Thankfully it didn't.

I'm going to have to find out what chameleon pens are, sound neat.

I think the Varathane is your best bet of those choices. We'd love to see the results!

I just loooove General Finishes High Performance water-based polyurethane, available at Woodcraft stores, at least in Ohio.  It's expensive but is perfectly self-leveling. Brush strokes just melt away.  If you can find it, it's well worth the price - Beth Curran
