From the Designer: "Are you looking for something special to give to a friend? Maybe you could craft something unique to show how important your friendship is. How about stamping your thoughts onto polymer clay to create a wearable pin or brooch? This is a great way to use up little bits and pieces of clay you have hoarded! Make the embellishment as simple or as elaborate as you wish. Whatever you make, your friend will love it!"

Materials List

  • Quietfire Design Rubber Stamp – Friendship isn’t a Big Thing
  • Quietfire Design Rubber Stamp - Checkerboard
  • Sculpey polymer clay, white, green, red and black
  • Sculpey Bead Making Kit
  • Imagine Crafts VersaMagic Ink – Tea leaves, Midnight Black
  • Self-adhesive pin back
  • Pasta Machine (optional)

Instructions

  1. Condition your clay by kneading it with your hands or running it through a pasta machine.

  2. Roll a slab of white clay to create the pin base using a pasta machine or a roller making sure it is large enough for the sentiment and checkerboard stamp.

  3. Ink the sentiment stamp with black ink and press into the middle of the clay with medium pressure. Too much pressure and the ink will smear. For this project, the goal is to leave the ink on the polymer clay, not to make an impression in the clay. Note that not every type of stamp ink will work on polymer clay. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations.

  4. Ink the checkerboard stamp and stamp onto the clay above and below the sentiment. Trim the slab to the edges of the checkerboard designs.

  5. Roll five little balls of polymer clay, form them into a ring then lightly flatten them with the rolling pin to form the flower. Roll a tiny ball from black clay and place in the center of the flower.

  6. Hand cut two leaves from green polymer clays (or mix some green and some white to give a different shade of green) and assemble the flower as shown.

  7. Bake the pin base slab and flower separately using the manufacturer’s instructions. Allow to cool and adhere the flower to the pin base as shown.

  8. Adhere the pin back. Send to a lucky friend!

NotesThere is just no end to what you can do with polymer clay – a simple search on the web will set your brain on fire with possibilities!
