Findings #1: Using eyepins, ballpins, headpins by Talty Findings #1: Using eyepins, ballpins, headpins by Talty

| Etsy | Storenvy | Custom Commissions | Facebook | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |



Please watch the video here: [link] and subscribe for more tutorials! I upload a new tutorial every Monday and some random video every Thursday.

One of the requests I received is how to use findings, specially how and when to place eyepins on polymer clay charms. I will make a series of videos explaining everything about findings, some people don't know that there's a lot of findings to choose from or how to use them correctly, so I'll be making videos sharing what I know. I hope that you'll like it!

Did your charms got lost more often when using eyepins instead of headpins? :? I think eyepins look much better and making a loop with a headpin above one's charm is so hard... :x

Sorry for the late reply, and I lost some at the beginning, I lost less when I glued the eyepin, but I still prefer to use headpins whenever possible :D

No problem (I was sure you'd answer some time... :XD:), really. I know how busy you're at the moment. :D

 

Thanks for explaining. :aww:

 Then I'd have to glue mine too, or deal with those headpins... :threaten:

I'm glad that you liked it :D if you buy pins on bulk they're cheap, and they're more sturdy I think.

I agree with Grandma about your voice. I still say that it sounds a bit like a french accent. Nice informative video.

That is informational!! How thick can these run?? I'm wondering if they will work for the holes for my model I'm putting together...? Trying to find pins to keep the holes together!!

OMG YOUR RING!! That is awesome that it's your engagement ring!!! <3

They're not that thick, if you need something super resistant you may do better with thick wire. They're okay for jewelry, but I don't think they'll work for anything too heavy.

Thanks!! :la: I love it so much XD

You were right, they really didn't XD I took them back along with another item I bought. I think I need to just get some medium size wire for it all XD
