Candy is so colorful and fun and has been a huge inspiration to me when working with polymer clay. I even share fun pictures of candy (with fellow artist Natasha of Violet Tinder Studios) on Instagram every week. We even created a fun hashtag #thecandyrainbow for sharing creative pictures of candy.

Sculpey Ideas From Candy

Many of the projects I’ve made with polymer clay have been inspired by candy. For example these clay lollipops and this candy cane bow. Especially when you add a glossy glaze, something about polymer clay looks very candy like.


I was even inspired to make these clay peppermint candies after watching a video with my 5 year old son on how peppermint candies are made.
