Default White Polymer clay

Hi there,
Can you anyone tell me why when I bake my clay that the white tends to turn into a clear colour rather than white? Has anyone else had this problem at all?

Aha! So that might also explain why when I mix say hot pink and white together to get a pastel it has a few little clear blobs in it!?

I haven't tried anything else yet. I don't mind it so far. It seems to work quite well for me. I'm waiting for another brand I ordered online called Ozzle. It's made here in Australia apparently. I'm not sure if we get sculpey here.

How freaking exciting Judy. You're going to love it! I glaze mine after it's cooled from baking. You can also mix colours to get more colours. Make sure you post pictures once you're done. I'd love to see.

Thanks so much Miranda for that. I just check the packet and yes it does have a 14 on it. It even says translucent! Obviously I was so excitied to buy some I didn't know it came like that.
Yep, the blobs were after baking. Oh well now I'll have to go and buy some more.
Thanks again.

The "little clear blobs" was this after baking? It sounds like plaquing, this happens with the trans unfortunately. Works out lovely if you are making faux stones for a more natural look but not so much for everything else.

If you all have any more questions, feel free to ask!
