How to Cover a Bic Round Stic Pen with Polymer Clay
Well, it’s about time…my first ever polymer clay video tutorial! Perhaps I can get one of these made every month for all my wonderful readers and claying friends…but we’ll have to see. Today’s how-to is a polymer clay pen tutorial. Before you begin watching the video there’s a few things you will need.
- A basic polymer clay Skinner blend of your choice, rolled out on a mid-setting on your pasta machine.
- Bic Round Stic pen with the pen’s ink well removed (just grab & pull with a pair of pliers.
- PolyClay Blade.
- Oven to bake your project.
- X-acto Knife (optional).
- Saran Wrap (optional).
A Few Notes
- You do NOT have to have a skinner blend to make this pen, this is just what I used.
- You do NOT need a polyclay blade, you can use just an exacto knife, or even a kitchen knife or plastic knife*.
- Be sure to follow the manufacturers instructions on the package for baking. I used Premo! polymer clay and baked my pens for 40 minutes at 275 degrees and tented them with foil to keep them from burning.
