Polymer clay slab creations are amazing specially because of their versatility and simplicity. Of course you can make a design that will be super complicated and will take you hours 😉 But it’s also very easy and simple to make just a design to relax- play with colours, apply the clay pieces one by one, listen to some nice music and let your creativity flow.
This was exactly such relaxed-saturday case which led us to create the polymer clay slab for this set of earrings. And the result is this sweet serie with abstract lyric motif. You can see also the whole making process in our tutorial video below.

Hello! I would like to know which colours did you use here?
Hi Eliana, the brand of the polymer clay is Fimo, and for the colours, mostly we tweak the colours from the packages with some accents to achieve more interesting colours. That is what we did also in this project, sometimes it’s quite a random process ?
Hello! I loved the video, very cute.
I wonder if these clays should be baked or air dried.
If they are baked, do you need something special to put them on?
Thank you! Yes, these are polymer clays and they have to be baked to get solid. We bake them on regular baking tray with parchment/baking paper or cornstarch 🙂
Hi, thank you for giving me such an awesome idea to try on during this pandemic! I wonder how long the clay need to be baked to get a perfect solid texture? I’m afraid I’ll baked it too long it will brake the clay.
Hi Tasha! Thank you for your kind words! For the baking, you should bake the clay according to the instructions on the package, because these might differ from each manufacturer. For example, we use Fimo and the package says -to be bake 30 minutes at 110 Celsius degrees- and it works perfectly 🙂
Thanks for posting this video! I was wondering how you remove the clay shape from the smaller cutters without messing up the piece. For example, the small circle in this video
Thank you for the video, it was nice to watch how the slab technique, seems simple at the sametime can be more complex as you mentioned. Iam going to give it a try.
