Make some realistic rock candy earrings to add some sweetness to your day.

What you need:

Soften some translucent clay and use your color choice of chalk pastel to add a little color. Don’t add too much chalk pastel, you still want the clay to be translucent.


Flatten out your clay into a thin sheet and bake at 265 F for 5 minutes. After it has cooled use a clay cutter blade to chop up your clay into tiny/fine pieces.

Use cutter plyers to trim the ends off toothpicks. If needed you can gently use sandpaper to smooth ends.

Wrap eye pins around the toothpicks and trim the ends if needed. Try to wrap the wire as tight as possible.

Coat the top 2/3 of your sticks in Liquid Fimo.

Sprinkle on the colored clay shards to the Liquid Fimo. Bake at 265 F for 8 minutes. Let cool.

Use a paintbrush to gently apply another coat of Liquid Fimo. Sprinkle on another layer of clay shards. Bake at 265 F for 8 minutes. Let cool. *Repeat this step if needed*

Shape balls of tan clay and press stick ends halfway into the balls. I used a small drop of Liquid Fimo on the stick ends for a better hold. Bake at 265 F for 15 minutes.
