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!

my pleasure :D
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
Talty Aug 19, 2013   Artisan Crafter
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:

Very nice tut. I usually use staples to make my eyepins cuz I am very cheap. :D

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