It's easy to make these colorful pendants!
When all was said and done...I liked the damask ones the BEST!
Step 1: Supplies!
(and an oven, of course)
Rolling pin or dowel
Patterned rubber stamps
A circle cookie cutter
Step 2: Let's get started.
Stamp an impression right into the clay with even pressure.
Use a cookie cutter to cut the clay.
Add a necklace hole by poking the clay with a straw.
Place on a tray and bake according to package directions.
(I did it 15 minutes at 275* F)
Step 3: Painting fun!
Start by giving each pendant a base coat color...and let it dry.
Next add one new color:
Dab another color on it and get down in all the cracks.
Just over a select part of the pendant.
Then use a damp cloth and wipe off the top surface of the paint.
Add on some more paint, in another color!
Keep wiping gently and the paint on the highest surface will
wipe off and show the white clay again!
For a stunning sort of multi-colored tie dye effect!
The effects are so beautiful, you'll want to make a few!
Finish them off with a clear varnish to seal the paint!
Step 4: Enjoy!
Add a chain, cord or whatever to make a stunning necklace!
