This project from Amate Studios is almost ready to eat! Using a metal blank as a base and adding a touch of marbled polymer clay creates a one of a kind pendant for your necklace.
- Amate Studios Long Rectangle Pendant (lipped)
- Polymer clay pearl and orange
- Dedicated pasta machine or roller
- Clay knife
- Dazzle Tac Jewelry glue
- Baking tray
- Necklace of your choice
- Condition about a quarter size of the pearl and orange polymer clay together to get a peach color. Condition a quarter size of pearl and orange clay separately.
- At this point you should have three separate pieces of clay. Run each piece though the pasta machine on setting 4.
- Run each piece through the pasta machine side by side so that each color is overlapping about 1/2 inch. Once the clay is all the way through fold the clay in half, at an angle so that the same color is not overlapping each other.
- When you have the marbled look that you want, fold the clay over to get a final depth of about 1/8 of an inch.
- Take the pendant turn it upside down and make an indent in the clay. Remove pendant. If the pendant did not cut all the way through the clay use a clay knife to finish cutting the clay. Smooth out the edges with your fingers.
- Bake clay according to the directions on the clay package. Allow to cool before touching.
- Before you glue the clay to the pendant make sure that it fits into the pendant correctly. If it does not fit use a file to help make it fit.
- Use the tip of the Dazzle Tac jewelry glue to help smear a thin layer of glue on the bottom of the pendant. Insert the clay into the pendant and let it dry.
