Polymer Clay Hard Candy Tutorial by fairchildart Polymer Clay Hard Candy Tutorial by fairchildart
A step by step tutorial on how to make Christmas (or any kind) of hard candy from polymer clay!

I almost didn't make this because I thought it was *too* simple...it's really very easy to do but it's a fun project to take on ;)

Can you use some glaze to get the candy to look more realistic? And if you do, what kind is the best?

I do use a varnish by a brand called J.W. etc that's worked fabulously for me and is my favorite :)

What polymer clays do you usa
Reply
:iconfairchildart:
fairchildart Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013
My favorite brands to use are FIMO and Sculpey :)

Thankyou!
Ive tried doing many miniature food pieces with FIMO but it is very fragile.
How fragile is the Sculpey?
Reply
:iconfairchildart:
fairchildart Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2013
That's interesting because I found the Sculpey to be more fragile than the FIMO...another brand that is sturdy is Kato clay (the smell is a bit off putting though :P)

These are very cute! Going to be my new little project today.
I know this question doesn't really apply to these candies, but when you paint your creations, what kind of paint do you use?

Whenever I work with polymer clay when I cut somthing in doesn't ever make a crisp cut it all either just looks like a rolled the sides of it down or in all smushes together when I cut it downwards, and sometimes when I cut somthing round theres a flat part on the on the bottom and it ends up looking like a semicircle instead of a circle, do you have any advice??

:iconfairchildart:
fairchildart Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2012
I have difficulty with this too X( I've heard that putting the clay in the freezer or baking it for half the usual time helps but I've yet to learn a good trick to getting a good cut
