I've become a huge fan of plugs and I wanted to create a less permanent solution to streching your ears!
They turned out great and look pretty real! :)

  • How to make a plug earring. Faux Plugs - Step 1
    Step 1

    STEP 1: Separate two balls of polymer clay, smaller than the size of a golf ball.

    STEP 2: Roll them both out into cones that create a point at the end.

    STEP 3: Bend them down like so.

    STEP 4: Cut a chunk of polymer clay from your earrings. Then push the earring post into it.

    STEP 5: Take a tiny bit of clay, squish it so its flat and put it over earring post, this helps to secure it. Smooth it out with your fingers.

    STEP 6: Attach the clasp part of the earring into the rest of the polymer clay piece. Use the earring to poke a hole all the way through the clasp and into the polymer clay. Make sure not to move it too much after this so you don't close the hole.

You should use a glaze before wearing them they could cause a infections to the ears due to the chemicals in the clay
