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

  • It's safe and 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 work can 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:

CASTING

You can also use Resin Color Film as a background with your polymer clay creations. One of our Amazing Makers, Veronica, made this piece with Resin film by casting in our Oval Double-Sided Mold.

DOMING ON CLAY

The example above and below are from a collaboration with Mags Bonham of Really Unique Creations and show how you can dome thin or thick layers of Brilliant Resin over your baked polymer clay pieces for a great shiny finish.

CLAY AND BAKE

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