Today we will be making these sweet little doughnut charms with polymer clay. Sculpting with clay is one of my favorite mediums, and though I don’t use it as often as I should, it only takes me rolling it in my hands for a few seconds to remember why it I enjoy creating with it so much. I’m sure you’re going to love it too.
So let’s get started… Things You’ll Need
- Polymer clay (beige, white, brown, pink. Optional: turquoise, pink, yellow)
- Toothpick or picking tool
- Drinking straw
- Chalk pastels, brown eye shadow or bronzer
- Soft paintbrush
- Ring form
- Eye hook
- X-Acto knife
- ModPodge Dimensional Magic
Poke a hole in the middle with a toothpick, and if you wish, make the hole bigger by using a pencil or a thin brush handle.
Remove the tape. You should see the variation of color. Place the doughnut in the freezer, and proceed to the next step. Roll out the clay for the sprinkles into very thin, long pieces. Set them in the freezer while you move on to the next step.
Cure the clay according to the instructions on the package. Allow it to cool completely.
If you used an eye pin, make a loop using pliers and attach as a pendant to a chain.
If making a ring: Use super glue to attach the doughnut onto a ring form.
Cute and easy, right? If you’ve never worked with polymer clay before, get ready to be entertained for hours. Happy sculpting!
