I must say that I totally enjoy going to other people's blogs and reading about their creative endeavors in whatever the mediums and techniques are that they use and I hope that you enjoy mine. Today I'll be showing you how easy it is to make a necklace. You can just use your imagination to design your own.
To begin with I rolled out some paperclay and cut it into this shape:
(Don't pay attention to the marbling in the clay, it had a little paint mixed in it by mistake)
Also don't pay attention to the splotches under the clay as that is on the plastic covering the table. The clay has a piece of stencil material under it and you can see through it. Anyways after cutting out the piece for my necklace, I used a rubber stamp and stamped this on it:
I then took some of the paperclay and rolled out a thin rope that I placed around the other clay piece like so:
After I reached that stage of the necklace I let the piece dry for a couple of days. I didn't have to, I just went on to other things for awhile. It probably would have been dry in just a few hours as it wasn't very thick.
Once I was ready to work on the piece again, I painted it, sealed it, and hung it on a chain. Here's what it looked like when I finished it:
I'm telling you again folks, you're only limited by your imagination. Remember that you can purchase Creative Paperclay at Hobby Lobby, Michaels and of course: Creative Paperclay! I hope that you give this clay a try and let me know how you like it!
