Basic technical instructions.
What is LC Glassymer?
LC Glassymer is liquid backable polymer clay medium by LUCY CLAY.
LC Glassymer Transparent GEL is a syrup-like liquid with white translucent color. LC Glassymer Glue is a syrup-like liquid with yellowish-white translucent color. LC Glassymer Color Gel is a set of highly-pigmented syrup-like liquids of 7 basic colors: white, black, green, yellow, blue, red, magenta. Gently shake the bottle before use.
LC Glassymer can be stored in metal, glass, wax-coated paper cups, or flexible plastic containers. Gently shake the bottle before use.
To clean up, use paper towels and rubbing alcohol. Hands can be protected by rubber gloves or barrier cream. Wash hands after using LC Glassymer.
For Health and Safety instructions please click here: Safety Data Sheet for LC Glassymer.
Bake LC Glassymer at 284˚F (140˚C) for 15-20 minutes. It may be baked slightly longer if necessary.
Baking for longer makes Glassymer Transparent GEL being less tacky and much more transparent and shiny. You can get much better glassy shine when using a heat gun after you take your creation out of the oven, and while it’s still hot.
Overheating may result in the release of irritating gases. Although LC Glassymer is not toxic, it is essential to cure LC Glassymer in a well-ventilated area.
To avoid bubbles while baking, please leave Glassymer to “rest” for at least 30 minutes, so that the air bubbles get to the surface and you can get rid of them with a needle.
LC Glassymer can also be varnished with a polymer friendly varnish.
Colour can be added to LC Glassymer Transparent GEL using LC Glassymer Color Gel, designed specifically for adding color to LC Glassymer Transparent. You may also use concentrated inks, alcohol inks, dry pigments, or mica powders to create colored ‘paints’ or add effects to the color range, which can be applied in many ways to polymer clay.
LC Glassymer Color Gel in low concentration creates a more translucent color than other additives.
When adding colors and pigments, please gently stir to avoid creating bubbles.
How to use LC Glassymer?
Glassymer Color Gel or tinted Glassymer Transparent GEL can be used as paint over raw or baked clay.
Apply a thin coat of Liquid Transparent GEL on baked polymer clay or glass, make lines and dots of different Glassymer Color Gel on it. Using a pointed tool, drag the lines or dots to form a pattern.
Use tinted LC Glassymer Transparent Gel and LC Glassymer Color Gel to imitate stained glass and enamel when enclosed by polymer clay borders and then baked. For enamel look bake over a polymer clay base, for stained glass bake on the glass.
LC Glassymer Transparent Gel can be used as a glaze on a finished polymer piece.
Use LC Glassymer Color alone or mixed with LC Glassymer Transparent Gel in bakeable silicone molds to get gelly-like casts.
LC Glassymer GLUE guarantees the best adhesion. Use it to adhere two pieces of polymer clay or polymer clay elements to other porous materials.
LC Glassymer GLUE is thinner than other liquids and is very easy to spread for an even coat. It is best to let it rest for a few minutes after application to thicken up. When first applied, you can slide the pieces you were attaching around a little to get them into position if necessary.
Use with LC Microstencils
Apply a thin layer of LC Glassymer Transparent Gel or LC Glassymer Color Gel on an LC Microstencil and bake it in an oven to harden the Microstencil, color it or cover it with a protective coat.
Use as a base to make customized Stamps.
You can make your own customized stamps for polymer clay using LC Glassymer Transparent Gel. Please read a step-by-step tutorial by Jan Edward Montarsi.

What other clayers say?
Working with LC Glassymer is a bit addictive and it has great potential… I tried a brooch… I love the fact that a transparent basis can be painted. So good.

I’m super excited about this new product from Lucy Clay Tools!! Transparent and flexible like no other liquid polymer clay I’ve tried before!
– Sandra Ferreira, Portugal
I had Glassymer on a tile, just one coat. I pulled it off the tile in one piece. Very thin and strong. I even stretched it. I’m impressed. I also love using Color Glassymer for painting on polymer clay.
