Default Re: Polymer Clay Centers Falling Apart!

Your people who are making them probably do not know about this, it was a learning lesson for me.
Just ask the people who you are buying them from to please do this.
Thats all i can advise
I made many bows just to have the center fall apart
Great idea and thanks for the info on the liquid sculpty. Since I know absolutely nothing about polymer clays I didnt even know where to start. Some of the pieces that have fallen off are so tiny that even when I tried to super glue I couldnt hold the tiny piece in place long enough to hold. So does the liquid sculpty come with the glaze or you buy that seperate?

I put a dab on the back of my finished/ baked clay piece, then put a layer over the ribbon too & then bake again for 15 min. The ribbon is embedded in the liquid sculpey and it is incredibly strong.
Great idea about putting the liquid sculpey on the piece and on the ribbon for a great hold. Will have to try that too, along with trying to repair the ones that I have broken. Can you ge the liquid sculpty at HL or Michaels?
