Default Tutorial: How to Make Easy Polymer Clay Butterfly Hair Bow Centers

I designed an easy tutorial for making polymer clay butterflies for hair bow centers. They are really easy to create using a simple roll clay into a snake method and forming each wing into a backward "S". I baked the butterflies with jump rings in the center so that I can easily attach them to bows. I am going to add a little hot glue but the jump rings add extra reinforcement.

Oven temps vary by clay manufacture. I used Sculpey Clay I baked them at 275 degrees for 26 minutes. Baking time all depends on the thickness of the clay. I think it is usually 15 minutes per .25inches. I always just watch mine after 15 minutes and check every couple of minutes to make sure I don't see any browning or drying out.

This style butterfly is super easy because it literally is just making snake shapes and forming "S's" for wings

Thanks for sharing! I want to start doing clay work but haven't had a chance to experiment with it so this may be the inspiration I need.

Thanks the jump rings really came in handy when I added them to the centers of my bows. Here is some pics on the bows.
