  • M stamp
  • Eye pin

  • Mod podge

  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather supplies needed: ball of clay, nail polish, m stamp, eye pin, jump ring, acrylic paint (white), & m&m's for reference (and to eat!)

    Step 2

    Take a pinch of polymer clay & roll it into a ball, it will be pretty small. Use m&m for reference.

    Step 3

    Squish the ball of clay down to resemble the m&m. :)

    Step 4

    Cut the eye pin a bit shorter than the m&m and curve slightly so it will stay in the clay. Push it in the clay, then stamp it with the m. I bought my m stamp in a set of lowercase alphabet stamps.

    Step 5

    I did different colors. ;)

    Step 6

    Bake them in the oven @ 275 for 30min. They should be hot! Let them cool, they are hard and pretty unbreakable.

    Step 7

    I picked colors of nail polish to glaze the m's with that match the clay color. It will make them very shiny.

    Step 8

    Glaze the m's one side at a time & let them dry. They are very shiny!

    Step 9

    Carefully paint the m in white with a toothpick or thin brush. If you make a mistake just wipe with a paper towel & start again.

    Step 10

    Let dry good before sealing or it will streak. :(

    Step 11

    Seal each side with mod podge gloss. Let dry good.

    Step 12

    Very shiny! :)

    Step 13

    Add a jump ring so you can wear on a necklace chain. ;) I switch mine out to match my outfit.

    Step 14

    Finished product is so fun and cute you'll want to make some for all your friends. ;) thanks for reading my guide! <3
