deco art metallic lustre
« on: December 16, 2015, 08:10:35 PM »
Hi, anyone had any experience with this, does it go sticky over time?  Just tried it and it is amazing on raw polyclay, when baked, it's bonded really really well to the clay, and would like to use it, but just that bit concerned about whether anyone has had it go sticky over time............... just popped my pieces into a pot with the date, to check over time, but would be great if anyone has personal experience with it :)

I haven't, but a quick google revealed that it is compatible and is also stays put better than lnkaGold, so l would say go for it  :)

By the way, l was curious, so l had a go at a couple of lnkaGold pieces with a fingernail and as you said it does scratch off - but as it's not something l would normally do l'm not going to worry ;D

thanks for that :) and re the inka gold   :-\ but as you say, you've had it kicking about in jars and stuff and it's been robust on that, so it should be fine! :) I was using the fingernail test as both Ginger at Bluebottle Tree and the woman at beads and beading seemed to test for robustness that way, but it feel much more confident now having had you and Emma both say that you're finding inka gold robust enough for the lovely stuff you both make, so thanks so much for that.  It's really hard, as I'd like to make things to sell, but I worry about making sure that they're robust, long lasting and don't turn sticky! yikes! Which when starting out, so with no background experience is hard to know just what to do! :D

I know what you mean - l don't sell anything even though l could probably knock up a line of cheap and easy things.....l don't worry about stickiness or durability - my worry is scratchy cord ends and crimps and stuff  ::)
