How to Make Polymer Slab Earrings with a Geometric Pattern
Hi guys, today I want to share with you a beautiful polymer clay slab earring project inspired by contemporary geometric patterns. In this tutorial, you'll learn many important polymer clay techniques including:
- how to add metal frame to the polymer clay slab
- how to emboss polymer clay slabs on the back
- how to accurately divide polymer clay into identical pieces to form a geometric pattern
Now let's get started! By the way, if you don't like to watch the video, there is a step-by-step picture instruction at the end of this article.
