Step 1: Supplies!

You just need oven bake clay, like this white sculpey. 
(and an oven, of course)
Rolling pin or dowel
Patterned rubber stamps
A circle cookie cutter
a straw
and Paint

Step 2: Let's get started.

Soften and roll out some clay about 1/4" thick.
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!

Now it is time to paint!
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!
Wipe again.

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!

I love these pendants! I made buttons for a sweater using the same method. I'm wondering what I should put on the buttons to seal in the paint. I have some liquid varnish (comes in a tube just like the acrylic paint) I use for tole painting. Would that work on polymer clay? Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
