Liquid Clay 101
Liquid Clay comes in many forms, but many of us just refer to all brands as TLS, which actually stands for "Translucent Liquid Sculpey". In actuality, Sculpey certainly isn't the only one who makes Liquid Clay. Fimo makes a Liquid Clay called "Fimo Decorating Gel", and Kato makes a Liquid Clay called "Clear Liquid Polyclay".
From my experience, you can use a WIDE variety of things with your Liquid Clay. If you want it to be Translucent though, I suggest using Fimo Decorating Gel. It is EXTREMELY translucent and makes the BEST sauces and syrups and anything else that needs to be coloured but still still transparent. TLS will leave you with an opaque mixture, so it's good for things that don't need to be see-through like chocolate sauce, slime, blood, icing, etc.
For colouring, things like Oil Paints, shaved Oil Pastels, Chalk Pastel/Charcoal, Kneaded Polymer Clay, Eyeshadow, Metallic Powders, Alcohol-Based Ink, Dry Pigment Powder, etc...
DON'T use Acrylic Paint. It does BAD things when

Because I'm currently working on a paper for my final year of university (I study English language and Linguistics) discussing Donald Davidson and his work with meaning & truth theories... it's a killer! I could just do with someone who knows his work, or has experienced final year uni, and therefore what I'm going through :P

Anyway, my real reason for popping up in your ol' deviantwatch messages is just to apologise for a lack of crafting/drawing lately - these essays are very important, and much as I wish it wasn't so, they're taking up every second of my time at the moment! I'll hand my last piece in on the 29th January, though, and I have some great new ideas to put into practice and of course share with you.

I'll be back soon!

Lots of love,
Alice xxx

I'm Alice, I'm 21 and I spend my time living between Brighton and Newcastle! I just graduated from the University of Brighton, where I studied English language and linguistics. I've decided to stay here to pursue a career in marketing, whilst drawing and crafting on the side! There's no way I could leave Brighton :heart:
I've been working with clay for around 7 years now and I love it :) hopefully you'll like it too!

Oh, I'm also a massive musicals nerd. :)
