Fish Key Chains made by Erin Reed with Makin's Clay®
Fish Key Chains
Designed by Erin Reed
I wanted to make something fun for the boys (my boys and nephews) for the summer, but what little crafty items do you give to boys - key chains!!! They do not have to use them just like a key chain as what little boys have keys? But, as a backpack fob or vacation bag zipper pull, why not?!?!?
Makin's Clay® - White
Makin's Clay® Clay Tools
Makin's® Cutting Mat
Gem - Eyelet Outlet

1) I used some of the amazing white Makin's Clay® mixed with blue DecoArt Traditions paint to make 8 fish from the Makin's® Sea Shells push mold in a fun light blue color. Then I painted the fish with the same blue paint to highlight the details and added in little gem for the eye.
2) While the fish dry, roll out the white clay with the clay roller and cut out 8 circles with the largest cutter from the 3 piece Circle Clay Cutter set. String on the key chain top and then some pony beads in white and seal the ends of it with the clay disk. Paint the edges fo the disc blue to match the fish. Glue on the fish, one to each side and spray with a sealant to protect the fish.
