  1. Future floor wax is an excellent sealer on polymer clay. It is acrylic and water based. It will not react adversely to the polymer clay and is easy to clean up. One bottle goes a long way. Apply a single coat for a beautiful satiny shine. Additional coats can be applied to create a shinier appearance.
