Topics Covered In This Video:
- Since many of you have asked how to add eye pins to polymer clay charms, so today I’ll show you my tips and tricks for doing this.
- Many people just shove an eye pin into the top of a raw polymer clay charm and then bake it.
- Polymer clay does not actually bond to wire, so although the eye pin may hold for a while, it will eventually become loose and fall out.
- Some people will use glue or liquid clay on their eye pin to secure it. Although that lasts longer, it isn’t the nicest looking or the most secure method for securing eye pins into polymer clay.
- I usually make all my charms from beads with the hole running through it. That way I can use a headpin instead of an eye pin and the charm will never come off.
- If you don’t want to make a nice hole all the way through your charm, then the method I show in today’s video, of bending and twisting the eye pin, is the most secure alternative.
