  • Decoupge earrings - plywood

    Hi
    I'm looking for very small plywood (20 x 30mm or can be a little bigger but not very thick max 3.5mm) to make earrings.
    All what I found was big sheet plywood and very thick - 6mm
    Can someone help?
    best regards

    Try looking in a model shop. Model Aircraft makers use a very thin & lightweight plywood and a good model shop should have a selection.

        Ask Makit - they may sell you a bit cheap, or maybe some offcuts?

          What about cardboard? I use cardboard and thick paper to make earrings. They firm up beautifully with a couple of coats of PVA and a lick of varnish. Just a thought.....

              I was going to suggest cardboard too - might even be stronger than thin plywood?

              Or, you could also make your bases from polymer clay. Just roll out thin sheets on a ceramic tile, and cut to the shapes you want then bake.

              Once baked you have a base for your paper decoupage - although I would sand the baked clay lightly first to give it a key. You would get a lot of versatility with polyclay on the shapes of bases you could make, plus you could match the colour to to decoration should you be leaving the backs bare etc.
