Polymer clay chick peeps tutorial

You just have to have a set of chick peep earrings to go with your bunny peep ones don't you think? So this is the quick and easy tutorial so that you can just fill up that Easter basket with peeps.  You only need a little polymer clay so you can make several to give away as gifts.


  • Polymer clay scraps in yellow, or pink, turquoise or lavender

  • Tiny bit of brown polymer clay

  • Clay roller (only used for clay

  • Waxed paper to cover work surface

  • Cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil

  • Home oven

  • Sculpey matte finish

  • Small paintbrush

  • E6000 glue

  • Earring findings, post earring backs
Note:  Work on two earrings at the same time to make sure they are exactly matched in size.


1. Cover your work surface with waxed paper.  Condition your clay by kneading in your hands.

2.  Break off two pieces of your main color clay about 10mm size or the size of a large pea.

3.  Roll the clay about an inch in length. Apply more pressure on one end to form a point.  Repeat with second ball of clay.

4.  Bend up the clay in a U shape and then bend the pointed end down.  Repeat for second earring.

5.  Place on your work surface and lightly roll with the clay roller to flatten slightly. Repeat with second earring.

6.  Break a teeny tiny piece of brown clay, roll and apply to the face area on both earrings.

7.  Place the earrings on a aluminum foil covered cookie sheet and bake at 275 degrees for 15 minutes.  Do not over bake or bake at a higher temperature.  Do not use a microwave. Let cool.

8.  Use the small paintbrush to apply a coat of Sculpey Matte finish on both earrings and let dry completely.

9. Use E6000 glue to attach earring backs to both earrings.  Cut a piece of yellow construction paper or card stock into a bunny shape for adding to Easter baskets.

Note:  Don't stop with just earrings.  Make little peep charms and attach them to barrettes and hair bands too.
