Polymer Clay Pendants {Inspired}

Polymer Clay Pendants

A recent beach vacation left me inspired to break out the polymer clay again, after a

long hiatus!  It happened when I walked upon a vendor on the pier, with beautiful

handmade polymer clay pendants, unlike any I had seen.  I asked her what

she used to color her pieces so vibrantly... acrylic paint!  Who knew?

I had actually never done that.  It is so obvious.  I have used mica

powders, pigment inks, copic markers, chalk... pretty much everything but

good ol' acrylic paint.  The artist recommended

using toothpicks to apply the paint, so I came home and

gave it a shot...

All I did for these was condition white clay into a sheet, stamp on it, cut out

into various shapes with craft knife, then bake.  I painted them

after they cured.  For some of the lettering I ended up using

PITT artist pens.

These were fun and simple to make.  Etching in raw clay makes the artist in me all smiles.

Try it.  You will love it!
