Polymer Clay Dotted Earrings

A few months ago I spotted these AMAZING porcelain earrings on Pinterest, and lusted after them for awhile. I wanted them, but didn’t want to spend the almost $200 on them, so instead I set out to make something similar.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Start by rolling out your clay until it is about 1/8 inch thick. Then cut out 2 circles using the 1 1/4 inch cutter.

Insert an eye pin into each piece of clay. Make sure that it doesn’t poke through on the side of your earrings.

Next smooth the edges making them slightly rounded.

Using the pin head, the rounded end of a paint brush handle or something similar, press small dot indentions into the top half of your clay circles.

Bake your clay. If you are using Premo like I did, bake at 275 °F (130 °C) for 30 minutes.


The white clay picks up and dust or lint easily, so after it is baked you are going to want to go ahead and paint them white to cover up all the little imperfections. Once the white paint is dry, grab the color shift paint and your pin (or paint brush). Dip the pin head into the paint then into the indentions in the clay. Let dry.

Next you are going to want to coat your earrings with the Sculpey Gloss Glaze. Not only does this seal your earring, it also helps given them the faux porcelain look I was really going for.

I applied 3 coats.


Finally attach your ear wire to your eye pin with a jump ring.

Now immediately put on your earrings and enjoy the fact that you just saved yourself about $190!

ps. I know you are jealous of the JT poster in my office. He was a gift, and has been with me for years!

    Hi sometimes my sculpty clay 3 doesnt seem to go hard enuf once baked an yes ive tried baking slighty longer.
    I find coloured clay goes hard, so wots the difference?

    Sculpey 3 is a very soft clay… not very good for pieces that need strength. I’d avoid it unless using it for little embellishments on top of a harder clay like premo or souffle.

    Try a spray glaze. If you want a shinier glaze, use the spray glaze first, allow it to dry, then apply regular glaze. The acrylic paint will not smudge when apply the glaze. That is what worked for me.
