Step 2: Step 1-Clay Moon

  4. Use a knife or scissors to cut it out
  5. Rub glitter on the surface of moon
  6. Bake in the oven, 275 degrees and 30 minutes per 6mm of thickness

Step 3: Step 2-Resin

  1. Mix equal parts of resin, or follow the instructions with resin and prepare
  2. Mix in paper cups with plastic knife
  3. Use knife to coat a thin layer on top of moon(this will keep the glitter and accents from falling off)
  4. Add glitter and charms
  5. Add another layer of resin, (add as many layers as you want, but let each layer dry before you add another)
  6. Let the pennant dry for 12-24 hours, it takes 3 days to fully cure

Step 4: Step 3-Bow and Bail

  1. Use E6000 glue to glue the bail to the moon, it takes 24+ hours to dry
  2. Unroll some ribbon and start tying a bow- the width of the ribbon affects the is and range of the bow
  3. Adjust size and shape to your desire

Step 5: Step 4-Chain

  2. Open a link on the end of the chain with needle, or flat nose pliers
  3. Close the chain link around the bail
  4. Do the same with the other end of the chain and attach it to the bail or a link on the chain
  5. Glue the bow to the bail with E6000

    Your necklace turned out super cute! Thanks for explaining how to use the Premo Sculpey and resin. I've never used it before but it looks like a lot of fun!

    Thanks so much, I hope you get the time to try it or do something similar. The technique is such that you can use any shape, you could do a heart or star with the clay and then do the resin.
