I’ve never worked with clay as I always assumed it would take a great deal of artistic skill. Ends up it doesn’t. Once I started I got hooked! Its so simple to do and the clay is very forgiving. You make simple shapes then bake them at 275 for 15 minutes and its done. You can coat your items with any shiny stuff you want and paint on any other flourishes. I whipped all these up in a matter of minutes each. I made a variety of Halloween jewelry with them… necklaces, pins, key rings etc.
Supplies for Halloween Jewelry
- Polymer Clay (Fimo, Sculpey etc.) (Bake to harden.)
Various Jewelry Items Depending On What Your Making:
- Necklace chains, pin backs, earring, string, barrettes, key rings, etc.
Shape your item into whatever size you wish. Add holes, or metal items if needed for necklaces etc. Bake at 275 degrees 15 minutes for each 1/4″ of thickness. Paint eyes, etc. Add coat of gloss. I used Mod Podge which made a nice slick surface.
