Floral Print Polymer Clay



1. Choose 2 molds (or texture sheets) of the same or similar pattern. Roll equal size balls of polymer for each bead.
2. Sandwich a polymer ball between the two molds.
3. Press firmly using a small glass dish so you get even texture.
4. Ta-da! your nicely double-sided textured currently hole-less bead!
5. Before removing the polymer from the mold,  gently cut the hole — this way that pressure won't distort the texture. I used a large leather punch for my cutter.
6. Bake for an hour and cool.

Next, paint your donuts…
And enjoy that nice texture…

Now we're going to make some wrapped beads…
1. Chose a mold or texture sheet with a long or repeating pattern. Roll same size pieces of polymer — this time lengthen them into sticks.
2. Press firmly.
3. Wrap to form beads. I used a crochet hook for my beads.
4. Ready for the oven. Bake for an hour and cool.


Go make something with them!!
