I’ve mentioned in past posts that I used to have an Etsy shop, and I used to sell these polaroid charms. They were a very big hit! I actually got the idea from another listing I saw on Etsy, but it was metal (and expensive), so I recreated it using polymer clay. The metal charm looked nice, but this actually looks like a polaroid, since I used white clay.
Once the charm was all baked, I filed the sides to make it nice and clean looking, and to get rid of any little dust particles that might have gotten into the clay when I rolled it out. If you want to make it a ring, you could glue a ring base down on the back now.
Or, if you wanted to make it a necklace, like I did, you could glue a bail on. You could also poke a hole through the top for a jump ring before you bake it, if you don’t have bails. I liked mine at an angle, so I glued my bail on the top left corner. This glue works great! It’s just really smelly so don’t inhale as your gluing!
Last but not least, I put my picture in the window and wrote on the bottom. If you wanted it to be permanent, you could put resin over the picture, but I like to change mine around so I just tape mine in. When I want to change what it says, I just file away the words.
*Keep in mind* you could glue a magnet on the back as well! You could scale it up too!
