Fimo heart earrings

Tools and materials:

- polymer clay (2 colours)
- cutter
- extruder
- earring hooks
- chain


Knead a piece of polymer clay in your hands while it become soft. Put this piece of polymer clay into the extruder and push it out. The diameter of extruded polymer clay depends on used adapter. We used diameter 2 mm (0,0787 in). You will need about 20 cm (7,87 in) long polymer 'snake'.

 From the extruded polymer clay cut two 9 cm (3,54 in) parts. This length is ideal for hearts 2 cm (0,787 in) long.
Bend each part in the middle and roll from each end into the middle to create heart. 

Roll white polymer clay out to make about 1 mm thin sheet. Size of sheet have to be bigger than size of hearts we have just made.

Put heart on the white base and press  it softly to stick it well on the base.
Use sharp cutter to cut heart out from surrounded white base as on the picture.

Now you have hearts with white base, but hearts are too soft for use. Insert about 1,5 cm (0,59 in) long thin chain into the top of each heart and put hearts inside the electric owen for a maximum of 30 minutes at a temperature of 110°C/230°F. After half an hour will be hearts hardened and ready to use. Just put them on earring hooks and show them to your friends.

This is how they should look like.
