I would like to write and draw some designs on my polymer clay. Does anyone
know of a permanent, non-smearing pen or marker that writes on the clay? I
would like to use black mainly, but also other ink colors. Any suggestions
I use a permanent marker. You can pay allot of money for one at a craft
store --about $3. I also found one that was double sided at Kmart for
$1.69 with a rebate. It has a real fine line and thicker one. I use
them to draw eyes on unbarred faces and on some pre baked items. If you
let it dry sufficiently it should do fine. I also cover with Future
afterwards to protect it. I have also baked some afterwards and it just
seemed to settle into the clay more. It did blurr a little, but looked
OK. Hope this helps.
Berol Prismacolor Design markers work beautifully on cured clay. Also, for a
softer look, Berol Prismacolor Colored pencils are wonderful! Kathleen Dustin
uses both the markers and the pencils to draw and write on her pieces.
