DIY: EOS Gumball Machine Tutorial
What you need:
- EOS Lip Balm
- A small piece of cardboard
- White spray paint
- Red Polymer Oven-Bake Clay
- Silver Polymer Oven-Bake Clay
- Multi-color dots sticker
- 1 Earring findings
- Flush Cutter
- Permanent Craft Adhesive (E6000)
- curved scissors
- 1 toothpick
- Black Sharpie
Get your EOS lip balm and a piece of cardboard. Open your EOS lip balm and trace a circle from the piece that doesn’t have the lip balm on it on the cardboard.
Draw the inner line of the EOS cap. Cut the cardboard following the inner line of the EOS cap with a curved scissor.
Attach the EOS lip balm together in between the cardboard. Make readjustments as you see fit.
Spray white paint on both sides of the EOS and let dry.
Get your red polymer oven-bake clay and mold the base of the gumball machine.
Get your silver polymer oven-bake clay and cut a thin rectangle to attach to the gumball machine base.
Out of the red polymer clay, mold the top of the gumball machine starting with the bigger round shape. You want to mold a convex on the other side of the mold and a flat base on the other side so that the convex side protrudes outward. Then mold a small dot.
Attach the molds together, with the smaller round mold topping the convex mold.
Bake the molds you made for 30 minutes.
Get your multi-colored dots sticker and stick them on the bottom piece of the EOS where the lip balm is set in.
Get a piece of an earring findings, we only need one, and then cut the post so you only have the base of the earring stud.
Get your permanent craft adhesive, in this case we are using the E6000 glue. Using a toothpick, put a small amount of this glue to the base of the earring stud. Put this and the butterfly lock of the earring findings on the silver rectangle shape of the gumball base.
With a black sharpie, color block one colored dot and attach it at the bottom of the gumball base leaving a quarter of the bottom part of the dot folded at the base of the stand.
Now you are ready to glue the base and the top of the gumball machine to the EOS with the E6000 glue. Let dry for 1 day (24 hours).
And there you have your Gumball Machine EOS Lip Balm!
