Spray it on polymer clay, newspaper clippings, ink-jet printed photos, children's artwork, wood, metals and more to protect against color fading and yellowing.

You can spray it on before or after curing your polymer clay piece. It is recommended, as with other varnishes you have used on PC, that you heat cure it for a longer lasting protection.

How To

PYM II needs to be sprayed on in a thin coat.  If you want additional gloss, let the piece dry and then spray again.  If you spray it on too thickly or too soon between coats, it may remain sticky.  The first coat should always be a thin misting then the second still a thin coat, not thick. PYM II is dry to the touch in about 2 minutes but not completely cured until 24 hours.


PYM II takes on the texture of the material sealed. Matte will stay Matte, Gloss will stay gloss.  It won’t change the appearance.
UV Protection
PYM II also has UV protection. As always spray something similar first as a trial to see if this is the look you want.
Sprayed on Jewelry to be worn against the skin - We have not had anyone post or report any reactions but everyone's body is different and reacts differently.  For example - some people cannot wear any jewelry that is not gold or silver because their body reacts to the materials. 
Be sure to let it dry for 24 to 36 hours before wearing.

Polymer Clay Compatibility Testing (05:47)
Video #375: Just because someone says you can use something on polymer clay (i.e. paints, finishes, glazes, glues, etc.), doesn't always mean it is true. Really, the only sure way to know is to test for yourself (or watch my videos ;-).- In today's video I show my test samples with the name of the product and date it was applied.- Some finishes seem fine at first, but will react with polymer clay over time.- Example of a product that got sticky after a few days - Vintaj Patina Inks on baked polymer clay (air dried not heat set).- Example of a sample sprayed with PYMII over three years ago, that still looks as good as new.- Please don't trust everything you see on the web.- You can always trust the information you learn here at the Polymer Clay Tutor, because I have tested it myself.Brought to you by Cindy Lietz, Polymer Clay Tutor.

Product Reviews

  1. Another use, different result

    Posted by Happy Clayer on 12th Nov 2013

    All things don't work for everything. It is pricy, but for my use it solves my problem and uses very little, so, for my use, I'm happy. I wanted to use it between layers of alcohol ink so the inks didn't run together and give me ugly black lines. I put on inks, not next to each other. Spray. Then, add more ink between. Prevents inks from running together. I can then bake the clay with no problems. Don't know if other varnishes can be baked. Just my experience, your results may vary.

  2. Did not work at all for me..

    Posted by Brenna L on 17th Jul 2013

    I bought this hoping that it would be better than the MUCH less expensive sprays I can get in stores near me. It did not coat my paper crafts any better than the other sprays. It scratches right off, even after three generous coats, along with the ink that it's supposed to be protecting. I was really looking forward to trying this out, but was unfortunately really disappointed. I'm not sure if it'd be worth shipping back with the return cost.
