My Premo and Sculpey III are ancient – at least 2 year old – and quite dry. A drop of polymer oil and some kneading restores the clay to its old glory.

The reason for fabritac – it sticks to the metal while it is wet and does not stay there when it is dry.
I can put my clay petals and they stay on the nails nicely. But after baking the flowers are pretty easy to peel off the nails.
