Tips for Making Polymer Clay Cookies
- For the most cost effective option, get a large white block of polymer clay like this or a small pack like this and a single pack of dark brown. Mix a chunk of the dark brown with the white until you get the desired color.
- The cookies shouldn’t be even and perfect so be sure to add texture with a few presses into the clay, pokes with the tools, and even an old toothbrush to add dimension and detail.
- Don’t make the clay cookies too thin as it can lead to cracking and breaking.
- If you would like to make faux cookies with chocolate chips (similar to the Nestle Toll House chip style), make the chocolate chips first and bake them. Once they have cooled, press them into the raw cookie (I recommend also adding liquid clay when assembling). Then, bake the cookie with the chips.
- Polymer clay doesn’t need to be sealed but if you would like to do so, you can. I use this for a matte finish or this in the glossy finish, depending on the look I want.
- These cookies can also be made with air dry clay (this is the brand I use) and painted once dry (I wait a couple of days).
