How to make polymer clay crochet hooks that look like peppermint sticks!

Step 1:  Choose which colors you would like in your peppermint sticks.  (Use both pearl and white clay for a realistic candy effect)

Step 2:  Mix all the colors together so that the clay looks like marble.  No matter how you mix the clay, it will eventually make stripes that are much more interesting then if you were to measure them out perfectly.

Step 3: Roll the ball of clay into a snake and fold it over.  Roll the clay smooth again and repeat until there are lines in the clay.  Two or three times should be enough.
