Another Question About TLS

Post by LINDA JACO » Tue, 02 Nov 1999 04:00:00



I just coated a large painted dragon with a thin cote of TLS & it worked
great, but I have a question about its general use.

I normally bake everything on a sheet of plain paper.  I noticed that
TLS "becomes one" with the paper.  Now see this as an asswt if I want to
coat a painted paper ornament, but what do you bake it on if you want to
eemove it?   I suspect glass may work but have not tried it.  

I'm getting ready for a 12 day show starting next week & am trying a few
new things,  Your input can save me time.  I lost a lot of time due to a
work related accident not related to the clay--tripped on a computer
cord, twisted the knee & strained both wrists,  So you can see why I'm
playing with the liquid stuff right now.

Glass works but leaves a shiny spot.  Same with aluminum foil.  I imagine a
metal baking sheet would do the same.

Good luck, and feel better.

I have a question about TLS, too.  I understand its cure temp to be 300.
For how long, if I'm just using it as a sealer for things I've placed on
already baked pc?  I don't want to compromise the colors I have on already.

Hi Kelly,
   As long as you are not using translucent, I think the clay can take the heat
for the ten or fif*** minutes needed to cure the TLS. Premo certainly can and
though I haven't used Fimo in a while, I did treat it the same way and didn't
notice any problems. I don't know if Fimo Soft would be the same or not. When
in doubt, try a small sample first.
