Piggy Earrings


Happy Flag Day!  Ok, so one of my nieces is having her 9th birthday soon and I wanted to make her a little something along with some stuff I got for her so I made these cute little piggy earrings (she is really into pigs).
So to start I got some pink sculpty clay and made two little clay balls as equal size as possible and made them a little flat.
Then I put my earring studs into them and covered it up as best as I could.  At first I was going to make dangle earrings, but decided that since she is still kinda young that non-dangles would be better.
Then I got two more little circles of clay and pressed them on to the bigger ones.
Then added a few triangles for ears and baked the clay.
Then I painted eyes and nose and glazed. As you can see the glazed one wasn't dry and had a big bubble when I took the picture.
Once they were dry I found some board I had, covered it in some scrapbook paper, punched some holes into it, and put the earrings in. I loved how this did not take too long.
