Suggested uses for Metal Leaf and Kato Polyclay:
For a beautiful crackle finish, apply a leaf sheet to a layer of Kato Polyclay. Run the clay, with the leaf sheet, through the Fire Mountain Gems and Beads polymer clay press or thin and stretch the clay out by rolling with an acrylic roller. Continue with your design and bake at the recommended temperature. Add a coat of DesignaSeal Clear Gloss for a glossy, protective finish for your fabulous metallic leaf design. This DesignaSeal Gloss can also be used to coat colored and dyed beads.
You can also create a speckled metallic finish by tearing the sheets into tiny pieces and mixing with Kato Polyclay before rolling. There are hundreds of uses--experiment and have fun!
