About 3 Of The Liquid Polymer Clays

The three liquid polymer clays we know of are Kato Liquid Polyclay, FIMO Decorating Gel and Translucent Liquid Sculpey (often referred to as TLS).  Kato, FIMO and Sculpey liquid clays are different products and have different uses. For example, Sculpey can be used as 'glue' between layers of cured and uncured polymer clay.
Unbaked, FIMO Decorating Gel looks clear, transparent and the viscosity is thin whereas Kato and TLS are rather opaque, white and the viscosity is thick. When baked, FIMO is clear, shiny and has some flexibility. The Sculpey and Kato stay a little cloudy, have a matte finish and expand a little  while baking. Of course, the translucent quality of any liquid clay depends the thickness of the application or the type of material you add to it such as, metallic powders, paint or glitter.
