Herbaceous Polymer Ring Tutorial
Created by: Jaci Boston
- Wash your hands thoroughly before handling the clay, since polymer clay tends to pick up any dirt and dander that may be hiding.
- Use a pasta machine to condition and flatten the clay.
- Pinch off a small piece of clay and form a flat teardrop petal shape. Pinch it together. Make another teardrop and wrap around the first piece. Continue to make larger petals and attach to the outside.
- Bake the piece according to the manufacturer's instructions.
- If you don't have a glass pan or light-colored pan for baking the polymer, you can place the clay on a piece of heavier paper like oven-safe parchment paper.
- It can be hard to attach something with an organic shape to a flat object, so the designer used an epoxy with a fast setting time.
