I have learned so much from blog hopping. I have to thank Lori Anderson for getting me started on this journey. It has been so much fun meeting all of you out there in blogland! I really appreciate how willing everyone is to share what they are doing and how they are doing it!
My newest find from reading your blogs is using Renaissance Wax for polymer beads. I sometimes prefer a shiny or glossy finish on my polymer beads and have found that the sealant products don't seem to stay on the beads all of the time. Especially the beads that are on a bracelet or beads that get handled more.
I came accross a blog by Diva Designs that explained how and why she uses Renaissance Wax to polish polymer clay beads. You can purchase the wax from her Etsy shop PC Diva.
The bead on the left was sanded but not polished yet and the bead on the right was polished with the wax. I had a time getting a picture to show the difference... but this one does a little bit. It is better than this looks... really! The finish is softer and more natural looking with the wax polish than the finish from a sealant. I find that the more I polish the beads the shinier they get. I use a piece of denim from some old jeans as a polishing cloth. It works really well.
Hope this helps you as much as it helped me! Thanks Lori and Lynda!
