Liz Welch showed us how to make lovely pendants using Cloud Clay as the core.
My packet of clay has been in the box for a while but I missed Liz's demo last time so really pleased to catch it this time. Then I had to play.
To pieces of clay cut out with a heart shaped cutter and twisted. Two more pieces cut with a circle cutter, a stamp pressed into on and Perfect Pearls used on top. All the clay left over night to set. Strange stuff even when set it feels the same but holds its shape, it is also extremely light. Once set cut some pieces of FP and softened it in warm water, the plastic fits over the core and needs just a little smoothing with an oil covered finger. The seams were 'covered' with thing strips of FP making little accents on the twisted hearts. When the plastic was in place all four pieces were given a protective coat of triple thick brush on glaze.
The oil does not seem to effect the clay, getting it wet with water does not soften it but a residue of black (the clay colour) is left on your hands. Thank you Liz for sharing this with us.
Beginning of May sees a whole new batch of monthly challenges, at By the Cute and Girly the theme for May is anything goes, so these FP pendants are a good fit :)
