Show your love of Chuck Taylor All Star Shoes with this Polymer Clay Project and make a keychain, a pendant or a pair of earrings! You can make yours in your favourite color by following along with this Instructable.
For this project you will need polymer clay in:
(I used Premo Sculpey)
Premo Accents Silver (optional)
Various tools: (work mat, roller, detail tools)
Jewelry finding(s): for earrings, pendant, or keychain (will be attached before baking)
For baking: a baking pan dedicated for polymer clay (or a pan covered in foil).
(Do not use pans with food after baking with polymer clay).
So Let's get started with our Chuck's...
Step 1: Getting Started & Some Tips
Before you begin, ensure that you have conditioned your clay (worked and kneaded it to distribute plasticizers and to make clay more pliable).
These Chuck Taylor's are small (about an inch long), so you won't need very much clay. I conditioned a 1/2 ounce of white, black, raw sienna and only a 1/4 ounce of the silver (optional, for the eyelets, but you can use white if you don't have silver handy). You will have left over clay!
Make sure that you clean your hands and work surface between clay colors to avoid color contamination. Baby wipes or hand sanitizer work well to clean up between clay colors.
