Topics: Polymer Clay

Q.
Can you put sand into polymer clay and bake it? I have someone who wants beads from a Florida trip made with sand.

A.
Yes, you can add small amounts of inclusions and/or texture to polymer clay such as sand, glitter, chalk, salt and more. These materials can be blended into the clay, or added as a topical texture. Depending on the amount of clay you are creating, it is recommended to test the process in small amounts to ensure you don't add too much sand resulting in a weakened final product.
