Making Jewellry with Delight™ Clay


Delight™ Clay is so light it's great for making jewellry! Today I will show you how to make these wonderful pendants using Delight™ Clay and a few other supplies you should have laying around the house. Let's get started!

Supplies needed:
Rubber Stamps
Clay or Cookie Cutters
Craft Knife
Craft Sticks and glue
Baby Powder
Paint Brush

Step 1:

Glue two sets of craft sticks together. These will act as a guide for rolling out clay more uniformly.

Roll out the clay between the craft sticks. 










Step 2:
Press your rubber stamps into clay.



Step 3:
Use you clay/cookie cutters to cut out shapes.




Step 4:
Use the end of a paint brush to poke a hole at the top.


Step 5:
Leave to dry.

Step 6:
Apply a coat of gesso and put aside to dry.



Step 7:
Paint with acrylic paint and let dry.


Step 8:
Paint with a contrasting color and immediately wipe off with a paper towel. Alternatively you can brush with a mica powder. See video for demonstration.


Step 9:
Varnish and set aside to dry.
