Making Polymer Clay Bugs Tutorial: Ladybugs Version 2

As promised, another version of the heart ladybugs!


SUPPLIES: *Polymer clay in black and red  *Heart shaped cookie cutters  *Needle Tool  *Blade to cut clay with (X-acto knife, wall paper craping blade, tissue blade, polymer clay blade, etc)  *Something to roll clay out with (Pasta machine, rolling pin, acrylic roller, fondant roller, etc.) *Work surface and an oven to bake clay in.  


Roll out clay to the thickest setting on the pasta machine or about 1/8" thick.   Use the heart cookie cutter to cut out heart shapes.  You will need one heart of each color for one bug, it is just as easy to cut out four hearts and make two different bugs.  


Cut off the bottom corner of two of the hearts


This one is easier to show than to explain!  Cut a thin triangle out of the top part of the heart.  The two parts that are left will be the wings. 


Place the wings on the opposite colored heart and press down to secure them. 


Roll out small balls of the opposite color and place them on the wings, pushing them down with your fingers to secure them.  Bake your ladybugs according to the clay manufacturer's instructions.
