Have you ever wanted to wear a lollipop, but it was just too sticky? Then let this simple and easy tutorial guide you through how to make your own sugar free and totally wearable polymer clay lollipop.

What you will need

Step 1:Collecting your Different Colors

Start by rolling out small balls of each color, about a third inch round each. Separate the white and translucent first, as they will be stained by the other colors if you mold them with your hands while having other colors on them. Start with translucent, then sparkly white, light blue, silver, teal, red, and then finally bronze for the best effect.

Step 2:Making the Lollipop

After the balls of clay are rolled out and kneaded, roll them all individually on a flat surface to about 6 inches long. Twist them together gently and roll them all together, twisting it up as much as you would like as you roll it thinner, to about a foot in length. Then roll it up in a circle and tuck the end of the twist on the side so that it leaves a slight indent in the clay for the popsicle stick.

Step 3:Adding the Stick to the Polymer Clay Lollipop and Final Touches

Roll the plain white to about a third inch thickness and cut the end flat. Attach the stick to the base of the lollipop and sort of squish them together to make them fuse. Cut out a piece of wire that is slightly longer than the lollipop from the bottom of the stick all the way to the top of the lollipop. Twist the wire with a loop on the end and make sure it will fit. Use a skewer to poke a hole almost through and bake it at 275F for 15 minutes. After it comes out of the oven, superglue the metal piece into the lollipop securely and let it cure, then you are technically done. However, it will look much better if you leave the stick matte but drip clear nail polish or glaze on the candy part of the lollipop.

This adorable sculpey polymer clay charm is easy to make and sure to look fabulous on your bookbag, around your neck, or maybe even on your friend.

What you need

Roll out some Sculpey Polymer Clay

Start by cutting a two pieces of parchment that are a fairly decent size to roll your clay out between. You should need about a foot of parchment. Roll out a golf ball size amount of Sculpey. Place your sculpey between the two parchment pieces. Roll it out with your rolling pin until it is about ΒΌ inch thick. Make sure you are rolling on a stable, flat surface to ensure your sculpey is the proper thickness.

Cookie cutting time

  

Use your cookie cutter to cut out two heart shapes from the clay. I used my finger to smooth the edges a bit for a cleaner appearance on the sides that will be facing out. You can always make little sprinkles and put them on the cookie halves. Just roll out clay thinly and cut it into little pieces. I poked the top heart with a toothpick to give it the texture on the edges.

Cutting your Wire to Make your Creation a Polymer Clay Charm

To make my little cookie a charm, I cut about an inch of wire off the roll and twisted it carefully. I held the spiked ends of the wire in the pliers and twisted it three or four times. I also bent the two ends out like an anchor, so it will not slip out of the clay once in.

Roll out your Icing for Your Sculpey Cookie

Just like you would with the sprinkles, roll out a piece of sculpey. However you will want to roll out your sculpey to about 1/8 thickness. After you have a long piece rolled out, double it up and see if you have enough to go all the way around the cookie with plenty of slack.

Twist it and wrap it around the edge of the bottom cookie. Start at the middle and wind out, and curl up the rest of the clay into the center. Press your wire piece into the middle of the heart into the extra icing and cover the base of the wire with the clay so it stays secure. Press your top cookie gently on top. Bake at 275 Fahrenheit for about half an hour.

Painting your Polymer Clay Cookie

After your sculpey polymer clay friend has cooled completely, you can finally paint it. I used nail polish for durability, because I am making it into a necklace. I recommend you use a fine brush with a fine nail polish brush which you can get here for the icing. Paint the icing first, it will be the hardest to paint. Make sure to get in all the gaps and allow it to fully dry. After the icing is dry, I painted the top and bottom cookies pink. I used a toothpick to make sure there is no polish in the holes on the front cookie. Once your two halves are dry, you can choose to add a face with sharpies, otherwise you are done. This sharpie set that you can obtain here should be enough for all your sharpie needs.
