I cannot say enough about this spray varnish!! It is quick and easy to apply and it dries in about 2 minutes!!
It leaves a medium glossy finish.
It is perfect for protecting metallic powders and other detailing work!
Not only is this great for spraying polymer clay but you can also use it for it's original purpose of preserving your important papers and memories. Great for scrapbookers as well as polymer clay artists!!
Shipping price is fixed. Shipping will take 3 - 21 days by Parcel Select (required because it is an aerosol so must be shipped by ground). Tracking is not provided.

12 ounces will last a long time and be well worth the price for the time it saves!
Preserve Your Memories II is a clear, aerosol spray coating that protects and helps preserve paper as well as Polymer Clay! 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. It adds a beautiful shine to polymer clay pieces!
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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
