Red Cuff Style Hair Clip
Gold leaf patterns adorn this elegant cuff style hair clip ready to complement any hair color and style. Thick hair? Thin hair? The beauty of this clip is you can curve it as much or as little as you need. Because you create it from easy to form clay, you can also make it any size that suits you. A wood skewer covered in clay acts as the matching pin.
Before you begin, condition all clay colors. Cutting should be done on wax paper which will allow you to easily rotate the work when necessary.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Setting numbers vary on clay conditioning machines. On my machine the thickest setting is 1 and the thinnest is 9.
step 10 - Set the cuff over a curved object (I used a small juice glass). Placing the cuff directly on the glass will result in a shiny underside so cover the glass tightly with batting then drape the cuff across it. Rest the pin on another piece of batting. Place the project on a cookie sheet in a 275 degree oven for 30 minutes. Allow clay to cool completely.
step 11 - Paint the skewer’s wrap with a gold paint marker.
