  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Roll the brown clay into tiny balls. These are going to be the chocolate filling of the M&Ms.

    Step 2

    Flatten the polymer clay colours of the M&Ms.

    Step 3

    Place the brown clay on top of the flatten casing.

    Step 4

    Wrap the coloured clay around the brown clay.

    Step 5

    Trim off excess coloured clay and set aside to create more of the same coloured M&Ms :D

    Step 6

    Roll the wrapped chocolate candy into a ball.

    Step 7

    Flatten the ball, but not all the way, to the shape of a regular M&M.

    Step 8

    Flatten the edges to that of a M&Ms.

    Step 9

    Use white acrylic paint and a toothpick to write an 'M' on your polymer clay M&Ms. Remember to do so for the other side.

    Step 10

    Using a Milton cone or practically anything, cut out a 'bite' from the M&M.

    Step 11

    The chocolate filling will be exposed.

    Step 12

    Using a needle tool, outline the chocolate filling so that it doesn't appear to be joined to the coloured casing.

    Step 13

    Add eyepins to your M&Ms , or add your M&Ms into little glass bottles THEN add the eyepins to your bottles. Either way, it's a great and meaningful gift.
