    3. Start molding your clay into the shape of the plug, make sure its not too thick.
    4. Don't forget to make a flare!! It's very important because you don't want them falling out. I used a piece of yarn and tied it to the middle of the plug.
    5. Check to make sure the measurements are correct.

Does the finish wear off in your ear? How do you clean them?

With clay, do your ears kind of 'grow' into it like they would with things like wood or crystal? Because I'm really keen to make some for myself but last time I had hand-made plugs they were wooden, and when I took them out it was VERY bloody.
