Polymer clay – chocolate color – I mix my own with dark brown, gold and a little bit of orange
Small round, square and heart shaped molds – read how to make some here
Thumb tacks – the flat kind
Polymer clay sealer – satin
1. Condition the polymer clay. Roll a small ball
2. Spritz a mold with a little water and press the ball of clay into it. Smooth the back as flat as possible.
3. While the clay is still in the mold, press the the flat side of the tack into the clay to make an impression.
4. Carefully push the clay out of the mold and make sure the tack will still fit before baking the clay according to the directions on the package.
5. Glue a tack into the back of each chocolate. Allow to dry.
6. Coat each chocolate with 2 coats of satin sealer. Allow to dry well between coats.
