Ingredients

Instructions

  • Open the lid of your liquid clay and stir the clay well with a popsicle stick. You can also add thinner to your clay if you want a more thin consistency, or you can let it sit out overnight with the cap off for a thicker consistency.
  • Twist the cap back on and twist the nozzle to open the clay and squeeze your color into your mold.
  • To get a color block look, squeeze one color into half of your mold and straighten the edge where it will hit the other color with a toothpick so it’s as squared off as you can get it. Pour in the second color on the other side.
  • To get a tortoise shell look, squeeze one color in different spots of your mold and another color in the leftover areas.
  • To get a glitter look, use the clear liquid clay to fill your mold about 2/3 full and then pour in small glitter shapes or loose glitter. Mix in with a toothpick until it’s evenly distributed, add more clear liquid clay until mold is full, and stir again. If you want a solid glitter look, add more, and use less glitter if you want it to be more spread out.
  • Once your molds are ready, bake them in the oven at 275° for 15 minutes (do 30 minutes if your molds are over 1/4″ thick).
  • When molds are done baking, pull them out of the oven and allow them to cool before popping them out of the mold.
  • Once your clay has cooled, glue it onto the top of a barrette backing, let the glue set and you are ready to wear your creations!
