How to make a polymer clay orange:

  1. Form a 2cm orange ball into a circle shape.  Lightly add dots with a clay tool. Form one ¼ cm green ball into a leaf shape, attach to the top.

2. Form two indents for eyes with the stylus.  Pierce a hole in the bottom with a toothpick.  Roll two tiny black balls.

3. Place the clay orange on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake as directed on the package.  For me this was 20 minutes at 220 degrees.
