Clay

Working with polymer clay is relatively easy.  The first thing you need to do is make sure it is oven baked vs air dry or reusable.  Kneed the clay until it is smooth and rolls easy in your hands. 
Using a small rolling pin is easy but not necessary.   Find the color or colors that you want and roll them out until smooth.  Make sure your hook is metal as to bake without damage.  Your hook should be clean of debris.  You can either wrap the clay around your hooks, or make a ball and push your hook into the clay.  Either way it's best to full wrap your hook with the clay from the bottom end to the numbers.  Make sure the clay does not cover up the size, for future referencing.
You may make any design you want as long as it is stable and won't fall off.  It's best to smooth out any rough spots before baking it.
Bake as directed
Let cool a couple of hours
Paint the sealant on with a brush.
Let fully dry 1-2 days
Enjoy!!
