Hey, crafty friends, Einat Kessler here with a fun project!
This time I decided to step out of my comfort zone and play with Makin’s Clay. The clay is versatile and is air dry so it is very easy to work with and you don’t need fancy tools. the only thing you do need is patience because it takes 24 hours to dry. This is a great project for girls and moms, for a birthday or for a friend. You can play with the colors and shapes and customize it anyway you like!
I started with Rolling out Makin’s Clay white clay to about 1/8″ thick on craft sheet using the roller tool. Don’t worry if your shape is not round because you will cut it later.
Then I used Ann Butler Designs Faux Quilted Stamps – 2″ Doily Picnic and Ann Butler Designs Crafters Ink by Clearsnap – aquamarine to stamp the clay. I pushed firmly to create a patterned texture but not too hard so it’ll not be distorted. Continue stamping, until the Clay is covered. I Cut three starts from the stamped clay with the Makin’s Clay Cutters Stars. I used two different sizes.
While working I decided to use only two stars. I added more color with a wet brush and the aquamarine ink.
I embedded some pearls in the clay and added glitter.
I also added some darker color to the edges with the Aruba ink.
Finally, I pierced the larger star both on the top edge and on the bottom edge, and the smaller star on the top. I let it dry overnight.
I inserted jump rings to connect the two stars to one medallion and thread blue velvet ribbon, circles ribbon and a chain to create the necklace.
Have fun creating!
