Clear vs. Translucent Liquid Polymer Clay 

If you're wondering what the difference is between clear and translucent polymer clay, you're not alone. First, let's talk about the meaning of liquid clay. 

Liquid polymer clay is what it sounds like: polymer clay in liquid form. Liquid clay is a slightly sticky, medium-density liquid that does not require softening. While liquid polymer clay bakes the same way as regular polymer clay, it's slightly more flexible and behaves in a completely different manner in its raw state. 

A great way to distinguish between the two liquid clay types is to define the terms "clear" and "translucent". While "clear" means free from cloudiness, obscurity or darkness, "translucent" refers to objects that allow light, but not detailed images, to pass through. A better way to differentiate the two terms is that "transparent" actually means "semitransparent" in the world of clay.

In other words, you can see through clear liquid clay, but you cannot see through Translucent Liquid Sculpey®. Translucent Liquid Sculpey® still allows light through, but the images are not completely clear. 

How Are Liquid Clays Used? 

As a clayer or crafter, it's important to note that both Sculpey® clear liquid clay and Translucent Liquid Sculpey® have separate, specialised functions that make each of them valuable in their own way. In general, both liquid clays perform the same essential functions. You can use both clear and translucent liquid clay for:

  • - Moistening dry clay
  • - Attaching raw clay to baked clay
  • - Thinning clay to make it soft for painting effects or syrup
  • - Repairing broken polymer clay items
  • - Filling in spaces in the clay to avoid bubbles
  • - Securing other materials that will be baked into your piece
  • - Fusing raw clay pieces as you're building

As the name implies, Sculpey® clear liquid clay is impressively clear when poured into a mould and baked. This syrup-like liquid lends a beautiful glossy coating when cured with a heat gun. Sculpey® clear liquid clay bakes to a satin finish and allows perfect visibility of additives like flowers, leaves and glitter. 

Translucent Liquid Sculpey® has been a favourite since the 1990s. This type of clay is a syrupy, drippy liquid that's slightly cloudy. When baked, instead of appearing clear, Translucent Liquid Sculpey® looks opaque when thick. It bakes with a matte surface in the oven and makes an excellent matte finish when you sponge it onto a surface.
