Polymer Clay Ladybugs (version 1)
Valentine's Day is just around the corner! Instead of the usual Valentines, this week I'm going to share how to make some cute polymer clay bugs with heart shaped cookie cutters. They can be made into magnets, pins, hair clips, or as a part of a bigger project. (They would be very cute glued to a picture frame, for example!) We'll start off with some shiny metallic ladybugs!
You will need:
*Polymer Clay (just black will be enough for this version of the project)
*Mica Powder (I used Pearl-Ex brand in Super Russet)
*Heart shaped cookie cutters
A surface to work on (I use a marble tile I got at the hardware store for about 5 bucks) Something to roll out the clay with (I have a pasta machine that works well and makes it easy, but you can also use a rolling pin, acrylic roller, or fondant roller) And an oven to bake the clay in.
