- Oven to bake the polymer clay, your household oven works fine.
- First you will need to get cutters that are a good fit for your clips.

- Lay your clay on a flat surface and cut your shapes with the polymer clay cutters.
- Place your polymer clay pieces on a baking sheet and cook in a 275* F oven for about 25-30 minutes. Your pieces should be soft and flexible once cooled.
- Using the loctite 60 second glue, use a toothpick to apply a thin layer all over the top of the alligator clip.
- Then press the polymer clay piece onto the top of the hair clip, making sure to center the hair clips on all sides of the polymer clay piece.
- Allow the pieces to dry completely and then they are ready to use!
