Polymer Clay Three Peas in a Pod

How to make peas in a pod

These little peas are the perfect kawaii accessory for any charm bracelet. This is a very simple and easy to follow tutorial for three little pea pod friends.

What you will need:

Step One: Making the Peas

For the three peas in a pod, soften the light green clay in your hands and roll out three identical balls. If you do not have access to green clays, make the three peas out of normal white sculpey and bake at 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Paint them light green and set aside.

Step Two: a Pod for the Three Peas

If you have dark green Sculpey, roll it out and shape it around the peas carefully, squishing the ends around them and gently encasing them in the green, making sure they are still exposed. Poke a hole in the top of the pea pod with a skewer for the chain or tie to go through to make it a charm. If only white Sculpey is available, roll it out and do mostly the same thing but take the peas out and bake the shell for about 10 minutes at 275. Paint the shell dark green and glue your peas in with krazy glue once fully dried.

Bake and Finish your Peas

Bake the three peas in a pod for about thirty minutes and take it out. Allow your pea pod to cool for about an hour and then you should be good to paint it. If you intend to glaze your peas, use black acrylic paint instead of a sharpie. Draw little cute faces or other designs on your peas. Decorate the pod however you would like. You could also make one of the peas with a bit of wire so it hangs out of the pod. One of my peas has the illuminati triangle on it. Feel free to get creative with the face and designs on your peas.

Clear Coat or Glaze

Nail polished may be used to preserve your three peas in a pod if you used acrylic paint for the details. However, if you used a permanent marker, do not seal it. The ink will run and ruin the peas. You may also use sculpey polymer glaze like this stuff you can buy here, however I have not personally worked with it and cannot guarantee that it is good or not. Try at your own risk.
