How to make a hollow bracelet, with polymer clay

Step 1:

Materials used in this project:

- Polymer clay (Fimo soft)

- Aluminium wire

- Toilet paper

- Ceramic slip

- Water

Step 2:

With the wire, make a large ring and cover it with toilet paper strips.

Once you are happy with the size, apply 2 or 3 coats of ceramic slip (To make the ceramic slip, mix water with potters clay to obtain a creamy liquid)

You can let it dry naturally or you can use a heat gun (or a hair dryer) to dry it faster.

Is important to dry each coat before apply a new one.

Step 3:

Cover the bracelet with polymer clay and make your decorations.

Leaving open spaces can give your piece a very interesting look!

Bake it in the oven, during 30 minutes, at 110°C/230°F

Step 4:

After baking, let it cool.

Place the blacelet in warm water.

The warm water will dissolve the ceramic slip and the toilet paper. That way you can remove it very easily.

Cut the wire and remove it.

Use clean water to remove eventual residues and your bracelet is ready to use!
Have Fun!!

    This is Cool..What is the best place to get Polymer clay ? is there a specific brand that you would suggest? I could use the same method of hollowing on another project that I was wondering how to achieve the hollowness on a part.. Thanks for Sharing..

    Hi CarmelitoAndrade! :D

    Thank you so much for your nice comment!

    I buy my polymer clay on stores for arts and crafts, but you can also find these products onile. I prefer to buy in the stores to see if the clay is soft and workable ;)

    I use Fimo clay on my projects, for no particular reason, just because it's more easy for me to find it and because i'm very comfortable working with this clay.

    There are lots of brands: Kato, cernit, sculpey,...

    I can't tell you which one is the best, because I only use Fimo.

    And yes, you can apply this technique in many other projects! :D
