Fimo Deco Gel is the only one of the liquid clays which is clear while liquid. Cured it is much the same consistency as TLS.
Fimo Liquid is generally clearer than Liquid Sculpey, otherwise they have most of the same properties. If you plan to do image transfers Fimo liquid is the better choice over Liquid Sculpey.
What can I do with Liquid Clay?
There are dozens of things you can do with liquid clay.
To give your sculpts a matte skin-like surface, brush TLS over the piece after painting (wait for the paint to dry of course) and bake for 15 minutes.
To create ripply little fins like on my cuttlefish, take a piece of wire and shape it into a circle. Lay it on a piece of glass and squeeze liquid clay along the inside of the wire circle. Bake for 15 minutes at 300F, when cool straighten out the circle and you’ll have a ripply ribbon of clay that you can then cut into the length and shape you need.
