I purchased more Best flexible Molds by Penni Jo after falling in love with the one set I purchased. I had a fun play with clay day and I created faux stick pins, brad toppers and paper clip toppers. I will post tutorials for the paperclips and brads at a later time.
To make the faux stick pins I used my wire cutters to clip off a small piece of wire. I followed the clay mold instructions but just before I removed the clay from the mold I stuck my wire slightly into the mold if I wanted it at the top.
For clay on the center of the pin, I left a pinch of the clay I used to remove the clay with on the molded pieces. I removed a lot of the excess clay but I left a nice lump over the pin.
For some stick pins I made a second mold and used that in the back of the pin. I baked the clay and wire according to the directions. Using random bead and hot glue, I added the extra goodies to the pin.
Hey there I'm Stacey. Daughter, mom, teacher and photography lover. I have always been the person that you could rely on to carry a camera with them. For years I have enjoyed scrapbooking, but lately with the inspiration of other scrapbookers I have developed a passion for scrapping. I often wonder if I will ever get all my pictures in scrapbooks.
