monochromatic texture clay earrings

You will love working with this smooth and soft polymer clay. Bend, slice and cut the clay into beautiful earring shapes; then place on parchment paper. Bake in the oven for a maximum of 30 minutes at 230°F [110°C].
Step 1

Slice a piece of clay from the white clay block.

Step 2

Knead, condition and blend until mouldable.

Step 3

Use an acrylic roller (or a clay machine) to roll the clay out until it is an even sheet and a little less than ¼" [0.6 cm] thick.

Step 4

Spray your texture sheet with mould release, then push it into the clay and lift so the design is debossed into the clay.

Step 5

Cut two shapes with a drop cutter and two from the circle cutters.

Step 6

Use a small stylus tool to create a hole in the top of each drop and at the bottom of each circle shape.

Step 7

Bake your shapes for 30 minutes at 230°F [110°C]. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Step 8

Attach one circle shape to one drop shape with a jump ring. Repeat for a second earring.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 9

Glue an ear post to the back of each, let dry, then add a Gold wing back to each.
