Makin’s®

  • Clay Cutters - Round 
  • Push Mold - Floral 
Makin’s Professional® Cutting Mat 
Alcohol inks - Assorted colors

Fine paintbrushes

Instructions:

These instructions are for 2 pendants.  Adust your measurements accordingly to make 1, or more than 2 pendants. 

Roll 3/4 of 120g package of white Makin’s Clay® with clay roller to about 1/4”. 

Use remaining white clay and Makin’s® Floral push mold to create assorted flowers and leaves. 

 

Arrange flowers and leaves so that they are touching one another closely, and some are overlapping slightly, to cover entire surface of rolled clay.


Place plastic wrap over flowers.  Use 40mm cutter to cut two circles.  Tip:  Using plastic wrap  beneath the cutter creates rounded edges on the cut shapes. 

To color the pendants, use fine paintbrushes and assorted shades of alcohol inks.   Add a small amount of rubbing alcohol to a dish, and then, working one color at a time, add 1 drop of each color of alcohol ink to the alcohol to dilute and reduce the intensity of the color, and carefully paint each flower and leave. 



Use pointed clay tool to make hole in top of pendant for cording. 

Let dry 24 hours. 

Apply a coat of JudiKins Diamond Glaze™ to seal inks and add a glossy finish.  
Add satin cording.
