More Peppermint Swirls by monsterkookies More Peppermint Swirls by monsterkookies
After much experimentation, I finally mastered the two-tone hard candy swirl technique! It's next to impossible using caning techniques and just isn't as nice using acrylics, so I devised a way to create the signature swirl by using a variation of the lentil bead technique.

This candy swirl is made entirely by hand from polymer clay - no paint! It is a lovely bright red and slightly translucent white in colour and they look oh-so tasty. The great thing about these hard candy swirls is that they look like two different candies - peppermint swirls and strawberry-vanilla swirls (such as a Campino's).

The red candy stripes come in from the sides and then come to a delicate swirl in the middle. They were flattened and diveted in the middle just like real hard candies! Each candy is glazed with a high-shine gloss to give it that pretty candy sheen.

Available as Stud Earrings, Cufflinks, Bobby Pins / Hair Pins, and Adjustable Rings. :)

Completely hand-sculpted from polymer clay.
