For anyone who’s a self taught polymer clay artist, you’ve already made some critical mistakes in claying. You tried a shortcut (that didn’t work) or tried a way to do something that ended up ruining your piece. It’s okay, don’t worry, we’ve all been there. This month we are going “back to basics” in creating with polymer clay. So for today’s mini tutorial we’re going to go over the proper way to embed a bead into polymer clay.
At left, you will see step by step pictures on how to properly embed beads into polymer clay. As many new clayers find out, simply “pressing” a bead into clay will not make it hold. You have to either use liquid polymer clay to adhere it to the clay, or you have to embed it with wire.
