Polymer Clay with Resin

Little Windows Brilliant Resin is your best bet with polymer clay because...

  • It's safe easy to use.
  • You can mix in tiny batches if needed to avoid waste.
  • You can bake poly clay around your resin pieces - they won't crack or distort, and they will stay shiny. 
  • You can cast resin around your baked polymer clay pieces.
  • You can do a single pour or create layers.
  • Gentle formula with no solvents so your designs and intricate cane work stay crisp and clear.
  • See examples below! 

Also, our White Resin Colorant won't yellow with baking, so it's great for making eyes and other designs that require bright white shapes. 

Ways you can use Brilliant Resin with polymer clay:

CLAY AND BAKE

You can also Sculpt around your cast Brilliant Resin cast pieces you've already made, and bake them with your clay. Just don't exceed polymer clay time and temperature recommendations.
