Introduction: Harry Potter: Luna's Radish Earrings
Learn how to make radish earrings - just like Luna's!
Step 1: Gather Supplies
You will need:
Some polymer clay - I've used Sculpey for this project.
You'll need three colours - green, purplish-red, and white.
A pair of earrings - you can probably get these from any craft store.
small amount of bendable wire (to attach radish to earrings)
Step 2: Prepare Clay
Seperate the clay into equal halves.
You will need more or less depending on how large you want your earrings to be. Proportionately, you should have more red clay than white, and more white than green.
Step 3: Putting the Radish Together
Place the white clay on top of the red ball.
Roll both pieces in your palm until you have one unified sphere.
Step 4: Adding Roots
Pinch the white part of the radish, making a cone.
Roll the tip of the cone to create a short root.
Step 5: Leaves
Split the green clay into three teardrop-shaped leaves.
You will want the middle leaf to be large and thicker, as this is where your wire will be inserted.
Attach all leaves together at the stem and pinch/roll them together.
Using a pen, make a hole in the top red part of your radish. Insert the leaves into this hole stem-first.
Step 6: Wire
Fold the piece of wire in half and thread it through your earing.
Insert the other end of the wire into the middle large leaf of the radish, pushing down so it enters the red part as well. This will help to hold the pieces together once baked.
Step 7: Bake and Wear!
Make the other radish and bake both of them according to the instructions on your clay label. Make sure you don't let the clay burn! Let it cool down before taking the clay out from the oven as it will be very hot, as well as fragile. Once your earrings have cooled sufficiently, grab your butterbeer necklace and a copy of the Quibbler, and don your new earrings!
