I have made some good projects with our new Jewelry Clay.  This one I consider GREAT!  I hope you love it too.

 

 

 

how to mix epoxy clay

It began with a small batch of Jewelry Clay.  Here is a little tip:  If you find the clay is too moist, add some baby powder.  It will stop sticking to your gloves.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

rolling clay

I rolled my clay flat as though it was a polymer clay.

After I stamped the image, I pressed this open back pocket watch body into my clay.  I removed the excess clay with an x-acto blade.

Adding colour was a breeze.  I pressed some Preciosa crystals into the clay and softly applied some colour with Pearl-ex powders on my brush.

The next day I filled the watch face to the brim with Jewelry Resin.  This clear glass coating made all my colours pop!

I even stamped the back of the pendant with my rubber stamp and sealed it under a glaze coat of Jewelry Resin.

My rubber stamp is an all time favorite  I have had it for years.  It is Acey Deucy – Puccini’s Muse.

@Sandy,

I’ve been able to find them at flea markets. They’re usually non-functional, so I can get them cheap!
