Here is how to make cute polymer clay cat earring studs for you or someone you love!
Black and yellow polymer clay
one pair of earrings studs
4 jewelry pins
round jewelry pliers
|Make the face of the cat. Starting with same size|
balls is easy to flatten out as a face.
|Add two feet. I used a wooden stick to create the toes.|
|Add yellow spots as background for the eyes.|
|Roll some polymer clay so it has a sharp end. |
Then cut the end with a wooden stick.
Keep in mind you only need a tiny little bit of polymer clay.
|Roll the clay gently with your finger to make it more oval.|
|Use a stick to insert the eye in the middle of the yellow part of the eye. |
Make a small oval body on a jewelry pin like in this picture.
Add two oval feet in the lower part of the body, use the wooden stick to help create toes for the legs.
|Make a small clay ball and stick a jewelry pin inside it, |
then roll the clay between your fingers to create a tail for the cat.
You now have three parts for each cat: the head, the tail and the body.
|Fire the cat parts in an oven heated to 130 celcius for 30 minutes. |
Cut the tails jewelry pin shorter and bend it with jewelry
pliers to attach the tail to the body like in this picture.
|Now cut the jewelry pin in the body shorter and |
bend it inside/around the lock of the stud earring. You cat body is now ready!
|Glue the stud on to the cats head. |
Use a superglue so strong that you cannot pull the pieces apart.
I use Loctite superglue.
I hope you enjoyed this how to :)
