I have made some good projects with our new Jewelry Clay. This one I consider GREAT! I hope you love it too.
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.
I rolled my clay flat as though it was a polymer clay.
Then I inked up my rubber stamp with black Staz-on.
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.
Here is my pocket watch/pendant curing. As you know, the clay air dries.
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.
