Cernit Glue is very thin and a bit runny.
Fimo Gel is also thin but still a bit thicker than Cernit. It is also the clearest liquid clay after baking. Great for tinting.
Translucent liquid Sculpey Is a bt thicker than the two above.
Bake and Bond are the thickest of them all and works great as a glue.
Sculpey Clear almost clear after baking, needs to be baked at a higher temperature and can yellow if it is baked repeatedly. This is not a substitute for resin.
The colored liquid clays are perfect for decorations, the white would be great as frosting or cream on miniature foods.
Any kind of liquid clay can be used together with any brand of clay.
Clay Softeners Mjukgörare is for making hard and crumbly clay soft and pliable again. Polymer clay never gets ruined but can after a long time become hard and crumbly, which makes it really hard to work with so just add a few drops softener at the time and knead.
If your clay is very dry and crumbly you can hack it up in smaller pieces and put it in a ziplock bag and add a few drops of softener, shake and then let the softener seep into the clay for a few hours. Repeat if needed.
You can mix any brand softener with any brand of clay.
