Puffy Patriotic Heart Pendant
This patriotic heart is not a flat piece of clay, it’s filled with air making it domed or pillow shaped. Special thanks to the talented Page McNall for her online tutorial demonstrating how to make air filled polymer clay beads. I’ve been experimenting with this technique and enjoying each variation I’ve created. This heart features hot fix rhinestones and a custom “USA” bail. Make this project to show your patriotic spirit and your creativity!
Before you begin, condition clay.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Setting numbers vary on clay conditioning machines. On my machine the thickest setting is 1 and the thinnest is 9.
step 17 - Bake the clay in a 275 degree oven for 30 minutes on a flat tile. Allow it to cool before handling.
step 18 - Sand the clay lightly with 600, 800, and 1000 wet dry sand paper.
step 19 - Buff the clay with a soft cloth or rotary tool.
