interesting to note. I didn't think to mark polymer clay with markers yet (as i've just started playing around with them) but i've saved this note in my tutorial favorites folder jic.

thank you for making this :heart:

This is a good tip! :D When I messed up, I just waited for it to dry
and then used my nail to claw at it. xD But this works a lot better. Thank you! :D

Just some quick questions:
Have you ever baked something after painting it? Do you know what reactions the paint had/could have?

I'm just working on a clay project right now and I'm scared of ruining it XD

I have never baked something after a piece has been painted. I've only baked chalk pastel after it has been applied. I don't know what the reactions of the paint would be, but I can think of 3 possible reactions. 1. melt 2. bubble 3. nothing haha, I would bet it'd bubble.

Do you have to bake it after it has been painted? is it a must? if you do, let me know the reactions! I'm curious haha.

In my experience acrylic paints do nothing when baked.

You're welcome.

Folk Art also makes an enamel acrylic paint that requires either 21 days to air dry or baking for 30 minutes (after an hour of air dry time). It will have a glossy appearance. Otherwise, I use Apple Barrel acrylics because they have a longer shelf life. Normal Folk Art acrylics tends to separate after some time. The enamels do not have this issue.

The high quality acrylic paints are reserved for canvas. I have no idea how they would react to being baked.

Ohh ok. I use Apple Barrel too =]. wow 21 days to air dry. That's a long time to dry paint!

It doesn't actually take 21 days to dry, but it is enamel and takes that long to "set" completely (unless you bake it). It's mainly for painting glass, which is something I used to do many years ago.

Lol I try to leave the paint as the very last step, but I'm scared of baking again (like to add some details I missed)after painting with acrylic paints, because imagine it will probably bubble up. But I did bake after applying some oil paints in small areas, and I didn't notice any reaction.

I think I'll make some weird thing just to see what will happen if I bake after painting. That way I won't be sad if it's ruined! :D

I suppose the best thing to do is just make sure you won't have to bake again after painting! :D
