Dazzling Mokume Gane Pendant

Materials:

  • Premo! Accents:
    • Frost White Glitter - 2 oz -- 2 blocks
    • Blue Translucent - 2 oz -- 1 block
    • Green Translucent - 2 oz -- 1 block
    • Yellow Translucent - 2 oz -- 1 block
  • Clay Conditioning Machine
  • Sculpey Acrylic Roller
  • Sculpey® Clay Tool Starter Set
  • Sculpey® Super Slicer
  • Texture tools: screwdrivers, furniture casters, jar lids
  • Deli or parchment paper
  • Glue-on pendant bail
  • Superglue
  • Wire necklace
     

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 275 °F. Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. Condition all clay by kneading until it’s soft and smooth or running it through the Clay Conditioning Machine for several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.
     
  2. Using the Mokume Gane technique, create a layered clay slab, using a layer of frost white glitter clay between each translucent color. Texture slab with tools. Using flexible Super Slicer, slice off layers until you like the pattern.

  3. Lay patterned sheet over double thickness of Frost White glitter clay. Cover with deli paper and use tool to burnish flat. Using flexible Super Slicer held in a curved shape, trim slab into a triangle with three curved sides.

  4. Bake according to directions above. Allow to cool completely. Superglue bail on pendant back. String on necklace wire.
     

Tips:

Use wavy Super Slicer, Sculpey® tools, screwdrivers, and clay cutters to press designs in slab. If the dominant color on the sliced-off slab is not the one you want, keep taking thin slices off the slab until another color comes to the top. Use the slices you remove to decorate a second slab and make a pendant for a friend too.
