Introduction: Pepperoni Pizza Slice Clay Earrings
Step 1: The Base
Gather all the colours for the making if your pizza. You can choose and customise the colours, but i used: red,pale brown(skin coloured ish) and yellow ( depending on what you include). Take a relatively small chunk of pale clay - around the size of a small right angles from a corner. Roll out the clay quite thin but don't make it too thin or delicate in case it breaks.
Step 2: Toppings
For the cheese i decided to use orange clay but yellow would work too. Repeat the same as you did making the base but just make the cheese layer a tiny bit smaller than the base so it can fit on top of the base( and you can include a crust if you want to). For the top layer, create some pepperonis. Again you can decide what toppings you want to include on the pizza and customise it to fit you.to make the mini pepperonis, use a small circular cutter to cut out circles from a rolled out piece of red clay. Remember that depending on the clay it might stick to the surface you are working on, so try to work on top of a see through plastic bag or other plastic/wooden workstation. I used a small see through plastic ikea bag. Now cut the pizza in half with a knife and then in half again and make two more straight cuts. You should end up with around 8 slices.
Step 3: Baking
How long you bake for and the temperature of baking all depends on the thickness of what you are baking and the clay used. I baked at around 130 dergrees on my fan oven and I was using sculpey clay. You should be able to tell if they are baked by how they feel but keep checking every five minutes to make sure you don't over bake them. With some clays, they will not become entirely hard in the oven and they need to be left to cool for a while.
Step 4: Assemble
A fter letting the pizza slices cool, get your plain earring backs and glue one pizza slice onto each using superglue. Once glue has hardened, they are ready to be worn!
