About This Class

Welcome to Easy Clay Earrings! I'm Kiley Bennett, and I'm a craftin' fool. I'm also a lover of big, fun, colorful earrings. I've been using oven-bake clay to make my own custom earrings for about 1.5 years. Let me say this: I'm not a professional! But the good news is you don't have to be one! All you need are a few supplies and a vision.

Throughout this class, you'll learn:

- The supplies, materials, and tools needed to make clay earrings
- What tools you can *probably* find around your house as substitutes
- A marble technique that works for countless color combinations
- Simple Color Mixing
- How to create a terrazzo / confetti effect
- Tips for rolling and cutting your clay
- Simple finishing techniques anyone can do

Get ready to bring your earring dreams to life! I can't wait to see what you make!
