Speciality polymer clays include such wonderful things as metallic, translucent and liquid clays, as well as some of the less well-known, or less popular brands. These include Souffle, Cernit, Pardo and a few other clays available in specific regions of the world.

Each of these clays has its own uses and makes a wonderful addition to the three most popular brands. They are really well worth while getting to know. I will be adding to this page regularly, so if you have a particular clay that you would like me to add, please let me know in the comments at the end of the page.

When I first started working with polymer clay, the translucent clays were quite a mystery to me. I was asking questions like: Which one is the clearest? What do you use them for? and How do you color them without losing the translucency?

There are so many brands of polyclay out there and most of them have a translucent clay in their range. To make matters worse, all of the translucent clays are completely different. I had to do a lot of research to find out the answers to my questions and some of them were quite unexpected. I hope to share what I have learned in this article all about translucent clay.

In this video I'll be presenting my translucent Pardo Art clay review. It's a wonderful clay to work with and has the highest translucence of any of the brands I've tested. It also has a few downsides which I'll be touching on, but overall I give it a big thumbs up.
