Polymer Clay Donut

Want something sweet? You are in luck today! We are going to be making a polymer clay donut with sprinkles.  It will look really yummy, but you can't eat it. (Sorry.)  However, you can use it as an arm candy, a necklace, earrings and much more. Let's get started.

Polymer clay colors of your choice (I've used 5 Sculpey Souffle colors)
Cutting tool
Ball tool/needle tool
Eye pin
Baby wipe/Wet napkin

Translucent Liquid Sculpey (TLS)

First choose your donut and icing flavor.  I chose to do a chocolate donut with vanilla icing.  Take a piece of polymer clay for your donut (the size you want for your donut).  Condition (knead between your fingers) your clay until its workable.  Roll it into a ball and flatten it out.

Take your ball tool/needle tool and create a hole in to middle to form your donut base.

Now it's time to add the icing.  Take a small amount of polymer clay for your icing.  Condition your clay, roll into a ball and flatten it out.  Pull some of the sides to make the icing look like it's hanging over the side of the donut.  Place your icing on the donut.  Get your ball tool/needle and create a hole in the middle (same as the donut base). 

Last but not least, the SPRINKLES!  Take a piece of polymer clay from 2 or 3 different colors.  Or, you can just do one - it's your choice.  Condition the clay as usual and roll it into a ball.  Next, you'll roll it out into a thin snake and cut it into small strips.

Now take each piece and place it onto your donut.  You can add as much sprinkles you want.

If you want to make it into a charm, just add a dab of translucent liquid sculpey (TLS) onto your eye pin and stick it into your donut.  *Bake clay according to the package instructions.*

And your donut is complete.

Doesn't it look so yummy? But just remember, this one is not for eating! :)

Until next time.

Have a Craftastic Day!
