Covering Glass with Polymer Clay Tips for success

covering glass with polymer clay

Have you ever wanted to cover glass with cool polymer clay designs but didn't know how to get started. Watch today's Polymer Clay TV and get tips and tricks for success! I have covered hundreds of glass items, from candle holders to wine glasses to vases you name it I have covered it with polymer clay. I have learned a lot along the way and I share it with you on today's Polymer Clay TV.

You can find the silkscreens I used in the video at these links.

Tiny Tiles: https://createalong.com/collections/all/products/silkscreen-stencil-tiny-tiles-1-multi-image-for-polymer-clay-and-mixed-media

This and That: https://createalong.com/collections/all/products/silkscreen-stencil-this-and-that-multi-image-for-polymer-clay-and-mixed-media

Here are the answers to your questions.

I would not go too thin on the clay when covering glass as it could crack. I would keep it thicker than a #3 thickness on your pasta machine.

Great tip that when you cover glass or metal you want to keep it out of the cold because the movement of the glass can crack the clay I have had it happen many times as well.

You can seal pigments with water based Varathane,Future Floor Wax, PYM!! and there are others made especially for clay on the market too.

You can wash polymer clay by hand with soap and water so these are totally functional.

Liquid clay is not going to make the clay adhere any better to glass in my opinion its an un needed step.

How to use templates stencils and cutters for a snakeskin look

How to use templates stencils and cutters for a snakeskin look


I love to experiment and play with different things together and this was one of those days where I started with a different idea but it turned into something cool anyway. Kira and I think this looks a lot like snakeskin but can also have a tribal look to it or an elegant one too! It all depends on how you put something together. Left alone without the mod lantern design on it it has a different feel but when I added the cutout from the mod lantern cutter it made it look tribal. So just changing something a little you get a whole new look. Experiment and have fun that's what it's all about.

How to attach polymer clay to glass, tile, coffee mugs, tips and tricks, glues and mechanical connections


In this updated tips and tricks video, Kira explains the most popular glues and methods for attaching polymer clay permanently to smooth non-porous surfaces such as glass and tile. These techniques also work for metal tins and objects.

This is really important stuff if you are giving a polymer clay gift or selling your work- you don't want the clay to fall off. You also don't want to use a non-compatible glue that might break down the clay over time.

The silicone tools, cutter shapes and other fun stuff you see in the video can be found in our CreateAlong shop.

Creating a Polymer Clay Sugar Skull Tin Tutorial


I love sugar skulls and what they stand for, cherishing the memories of our loved ones. They are especially fun to make around Halloween. I have lots of little things that my new kitty Spunky can get into so I though what about making a little tin to hold them in. Of course she did try to chew on the top of the tin but I can keep that out of her reach. LOL I show you on today's Polymer Clay TV how to add polymer clay to the top of a tin to embellish it. These make great gifts too and you can adapt to any season or occasion.
