Time for a new DIY! Every time I pull out this clay I wonder why I don’t use it more. It’s so easy to use and fun! I’ve seen these small, geode studs everywhere and have been dying to make my own. I pick my own colors and it’s free. 😉 So! Here we go!
-Hot glue gun
-Small paintbrush (not shown)
-Clay carving knife or sharp perry knife (not shown)
Take a small piece of clay and roll it into a ball. You’ll want it to be bigger than the final product. Press it onto a flat surface. This will be the place where the earring back will be glued.
Take your perry knife and cut sharp angles into your clay. This is why your initial ball of clay needs to be bigger. You’ll be cutting hunks off!
Bake according to your package’s instructions.
Once baked, heat up that hot glue gun and get your paint ready.
Mark the bottoms and be sure not to paint this part. You want to be sure where to glue the earring blanks.
Paint them! *Here’s a tip: Glue your backings on first and then paint them. They’re easier to hold. 🙂
If you didn’t already, glue on your blanks. You’re done!
Let me know if you try it and send me a picture of your final product!
