Sage and Gold Pendant
It’s easy to make a pendant with lots of design elements in your favorite colors when you’re working with clay. This pendant was designed with Sculpey’s silk screen kit. The kit includes 14 beautiful patterns you can choose from along with two paint colors. You squeegee the paint across the raw clay then bake it when it’s dry. See the instructions below. You’ll have to agree how uncomplicated the process is. Change the clay color or the design to make a pendant that suits your taste.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Setting numbers vary on clay conditioning machines. On my Sculpey machine the thickest setting is 1, the thinnest is 9.
Before you begin, condition each clay color. All cutting should be done on wax paper which will allow you to easily rotate the work when necessary.
step 1 - Blend together Ecru and Green clay to go from green to the sage color. Roll it out on the #2 setting with the clay conditioning machine and place it on wax paper.
step 4 - Lay plastic wrap over the clay. Position a 1.50” round cuter over the clay, centering the deign. Press down on the cutter.
step 6 - To create the bail cut a half inch strip of the clay to measure 2" long. Roll a texture wheel over the piece. Brush it with the gold paint and let it dry.
step 8 - Bake the clay in the oven at 275 degrees for 30 minutes. Allow to cool completely before removing from the bead maker.
step 10 - To wear the pendant slip a chain through the bail.
