First I make dough & then I add some spring colors in some particles of soft dough,,then I made some tiny flowers,leaf and fillers,
I paste the yellow part over the hair clip & then fix the dry flowers/leaf in the dough..I cover the grey base of clip with yellow dough.

when it was fixed perfectly,let it dry totally and after 5,6 hours I add some shine with mod podge gloss.

by the way..its not bad without shine but a glossy look is so special..and with gloss,its looking like its plastic stuff or made by any glass material..not handmade :)

*Homemade Recipe of dough*

-1 cup of all purposed flour or corn flour
-4 tbsp of movileth german glue(or any transparent glue)
– few drops of lemon juice
– few drops of glycerin
Mix all the things in flour & start making dough as you are going to make pizza dough..haha
apply Vaseline on hands & start mixing with your hands & mix enough so it will be soft & not be sticky..If you feel its going thin,add some dust of flour & if you think its going hard,add some glue..
when it will be so soft & wrinkle free, then take any polythene bag & make it greasy with Vaseline and put this dough in air tight can use rubber band for making it totally air tight.then place the dough in any box.DON’T REFRIGERATE!
This dough was made by me two months back but I tried making something after you can see its still soft & smooth.the basic tip is to avoid adding water & it must be placed in dry,air tight place!

I save some dough of the same colors & will be trying pair of earrings soon..Would you like to see something more??
Let me know :)
Have a Nice Day!

    Thanks Divya. I am also searching polymer clay in my area but not yet discovered anywhere but I notice the end result of polymer & my homemade dough is similar.any white/transparent glue will be OK..if you can find movileth german glue it would be nice & result will be awesome!
