Condition brown polymer clay. Make a thick sheet of clay.
Place cling film or plastic bag on the polymer clay sheet before cutting. By doing this, you will achieve round edges.
Cut the desired shape using a cookie cutter.
Texturize it. I used a kitchen sponge. Bake it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Condition white polymer clay. Put it in the Czextruder and extrude the clay. Use the extension with small holes (LC Disk 3).
Start decorating your gingerbread.
Decorate it according to your taste and bake it again.
Drill holes for hanging.
Hang it on a string, and your gingerbread is ready.
