The last untraditional Easter egg tutorial I am sharing this week are these fun clay jewelry pieces. This is a great project if you are just getting started with polymer clay or if you have some scraps of clay you are looking to use up. You can easily turn a small amount of clay into fun Easter earrings and pins.
I used a few small scraps of clay for this project, and I had plenty left over when I was done. You can tell the scale from this photo, but none of those balls of clay are bigger than a dime.
If you aren’t experienced with polymer clay, I highly recommend using the Sculpey cabochon mold. It is very easy to work with and will give you great results.
To make my striped Easter egg, I rolled out thin snakes of clay and added them to the medium sized teardrop shaped mold. I made a zig zag design on the large egg with a few snakes of clay in the largest teardrop mold. Finally I rolled some scraps together to create a marblized egg in the smallest teardrop mold.
I baked the mold in a 275 degree oven for twenty minutes, let the mold cool, and popped out my clay Easter eggs. I went back and made a second tiny marbled egg using the same process.
I used a small amount of strong, fast-drying glue to attach the earring posts to the back of the two small marbled eggs.
I used the same glue to glue the medium and large clay eggs together. Then I added a pin back to the largest egg.
These earrings and the brooch are so cute for Easter, don’t you think? I hope you enjoyed all the non-traditional Easter egg projects I posted this week! Let me know which one was your favorite in the comments below.
