Playing with Clay...a DIY Project

Have you used Sculpey Oven-Bake Clay before? It's pretty fun to think you can channel your inner play-doh playing self and make something that can be creative and pretty....

Today I made these Necklace Charms...



and here's how....


Step 1: Roll clay to about a 1/4 in thickness, with a sharp knife cut a 1x1 inch square, twist a piece of wire into a loop with the end long enough to push into your charm (I used 26 gauge) Bake charm to package instructions

Step 2: Print an image to the size of your charm and cut out

Step 3: Use Mod Podge to secure your image to the charm

Step 4: Use Mod Podge Dimensional Magic on top of your charm to create a beautiful glass like finish....allow to dry over night and you are done!

What do you think?? I love that the possibilities are endless with this one...just think of all the pretty images you could use!

Also... There are still a few more days to enter the GIVEAWAY to win one of these necklaces made by yours truly :)


Happy Saturday Friends!
