  • Help!!! -adding whiskers

    Hey! I'm new to here and to polymer clay I'm general. I am making an otter keychain and would like to add whiskers out of plastic (fishing line, or something a little tougher). As of now I added the whiskers but didn't cure it yet, because I think the plastic will melt I'm the oven. What do you suggest? Should I take out the whiskers and leave small holes to place them in after with some super glue maybe? Any tips would help!
    Thanks ahead of time

    I'm no expert, but I would definitely take the whiskers out and put them in again after cooking. You really don't want melted plastic in your oven (trust me, my husband accidently melted a lot of plastic buttons in the oven!)

      Thanks! Would super glue work to glue them back on?

        Yes I think you should leave the whiskers to attach after the baking process. You can always attach them with super glue or resin afterwards!

          I use the bristles off of wall painting brushes for whiskers and then I make holes in the polymer clay first with the bristles before baking the clay. When its cooled down I then put some E6000 glue on the tip of the whisker and insert it into the hole and viola all done.
