Customize Brads with Polymer Clay

Cover plain metal brads with polymer clay to create your own unique embellishments. These can be used to add a special finishing touch to handmade cards or other projects. This is a great way to use up odds and ends of polymer clay. While this is a quick and easy project, be warned - it can be very addictive!

I used scraps of polymer clay from other projects to cover these brads. Even very tiny scraps can be used. Mix them together to form a bigger lump of polymer clay and this will give a very attractive marbled effect.

Materials Required

  • Scraps of polymer clay (see Polymer Clay for more information)
  • Plain metal brads
  • Craft rolling pin, craft knife or blade
  • Oven for curing or baking the polymer clay
