Kato Polyclay brand polymer clay by Van Aken offers superior working properties for cane work. As a stiff clay, it is surprisingly crumble-free and it doesn't get sticky even after continuous handling. Kato also expands your creative possibilities with Liquid Polyclay. You can use this innovative additive as a clay extender, softener, adhesive and finishing coat!
- Clear Liquid Polyclay also allows you to photo-transfer onto clay, create complex grouting effects, and make colorful glazes that bake and bond to the clay.
- Kato Repel Gel prevents polymer clay from adhering to itself when cured. Use Repel Gel for making braids, loops, fringe, and more.
- Generally, soft polymer clays are good for projects that don't involve extensive manipulation. Soft clays (like Sculpey III®) start out easier to work with, but can start to blend together and bleed once worked for a while.
- Stiff polymer clays may start out crumbly when cold, but they manipulate well in the long run. This makes stiff clays (like Kato clay) superior to use for cane work.
