Picture Perfect Clay Pendant


  • Aleene's Original Tacky Glue

  • Tissue blade

  • Knitting needle
  • Rubber stamp with lots of detail
  • Water spritzer

  1. Roll your clay out on the widest setting on your pasta machine - about 1/8".
  2. Cut one large square. Double the thickness of the clay and cut one more large square.
  3. Spritz the rubber stamp with water and press it into the double thick square.
  4. Center the smaller cookie cutter in the stamped piece and cut.
