So today I decided to go down to Hobby Lobby and get some clay. It was $1.99 per color, the brands were all about the same price. I have only ever worked with clay one other time. I was in elementary school, maybe middle school, so I was too young to remember if this was a good brand or if it mattered.
I knew I wanted to make quaggan earrings (quaggans are an NPC race in Guild Wars 2). I ended up making 3 pairs for a few of my friends as well and I think they turned out alright! (I am currently wearing a pair!
They were surprisingly easy, only took around 15 minutes plus baking time, once I got the hang of it. The first pair took about an hour, I think I kneaded the clay too long and it was hard to have it keep the bubbly shape.
