Free Makes

Say What? Badges

I finally got my stuff together enough to start the blog… Hurrah!!!
So here’s the first of hopefully many free makes.

Say What badges.

Really the most important things you need are the polymer clay, brooch pins, pen and oven (and something to put them on in the oven)

Next you cut them into shape, I used a rose cutter that had a pointed bit because I didn’t have a circle shape the right size.

Work the clay into  speech bubble, if you’re really good you might be able to make thought bubbles as well.

You need a thin piece of clay to stick the pin onto the clay.

Say What? 4

Secure the clay square so it joins the two bits of clay together. In the oven they will set to each other so you don’t need to use glue.

The clay I used was from Hobbycraft. It’s the cheapest clay (their own brand) and only £1 for a block but I got 13 out of that one block. It’s a bit sticky when worked for a long time, but for this project it works well.

And here’s the final product. Put anything you want on the badge or sell them blank so people can write their own message.
