This is my first instructable, I will be as thorough as possible. I wanted to make something special for my grandmother for mothers day, and she loves to wear earrings...so I figured eh, WHY NOT! I remembered watching a video on YouTube on how to re-hydrate dried up polymer clay. (They mixed it with baby oil) So I thought to myself, what if I mixed in allot of baby oil to make it an icing consistency to brush embroider on polymer clay like cake decorators do, and if so would it harden when baked? IT WORKS! So here we go XD

Step 1: Things You Will Need.

  1. Clear coat spray paint (I chose gloss)
  2. Baby oil
  3. Pasta machine (or hand roller)
  4. Polymer clay 2 colors (I chose black and glow and the dark)
  5. Acrylic paint (I chose gold)
  6. 20 gauge wire
  7. 2 fish hook earrings
  8. Mixing cup
  9. Needle nose pliers (round will be better, but I did not have any)
  10. Razor blade
  11. Ball tools
  12. Scissors
  13. 2 paint brushes (a flat brush for painting thick layers, and a fine point for detail)
  14. Plastic bag
