Bake N' Bond Or Glue?
« on: July 17, 2014, 06:10:47 PM »
Hi,
When you have a few baked pieces that you need to attach to another baked piece, do you use another piece of clay and/or bake n' bond or do you use glue?

If you don´t want to put it back into the oven then glue if you don´t mind baking it again then any liquid clay like the bake and bond will do the job.
The liquid clay bond is super strong.

I don't mind baking, I was thinking of adding a tiny fresh clay post as well as bake n' bond, so I can add the baked cogs in position on the baked pendant.

In that case, yes, Bake and Bond would be an excellent choice - it's tackier than other liquid clays.  But any will do the job.  No need to use more than a tiny bit - you don't want it oozing  :)

Yes I just got my BakeN'Bond today and I noticed that it's just like TLS - is there any difference?
(Apart from the TLS's 2 fl oz being 46ml and the BakeNBond's 2 fl oz being 59ml.)

When I tried using a drop of TLS to help fix one part to another before baking I did realise that the TLS is runnier than I expected. And looks more so in the bottle than the BnB.
But is there any technical working difference?

The main difference is as you noticed - B and B is thicker and tackier so acts more like glue while raw, whereas liquid clay is quite slippy....you need to use a minute amount of the latter when joining pieces .  When baked they give the same result.

TLS has other uses as well - google for some other interesting things to do with liquid clays  ;)

Thanks.
Yes I've seen that you can transfer images and some people use it to make eyes - with limited results as sometimes is comes up fairly clear... and sometimes nothing you can do stops it looking cloudy.
