Materials and tools:
- Black polymer clay
- LC Microstencils Set 13
- Metallic acrylic paint or metallic powders
- Round cutters – ø 35 mm and ø 8 mm
- Needle or pin
- Leather cord
Condition black polymer clay and run it through the machine at the middle settings.
Run conditioned clay with LC Microstencil of your choice through the machine. Use the same settings.
Do not remove the LC Microstencil and apply acrylic paint with your fingers. You can also use metallic powder.
Remove the LC Microstencil and let the paint dry.
Place the sheet on the round cutter with the painted side down. Make a hollow – gently push the clay down with your finger.
Make another sheet of clay. Place the cutter with the hollow shape on it and cut through both layers. Remove the cut off clay before removing the round cutter.
Pierce the pendant with a pin, so the air can escape out.
Make a hole with the smaller cutter and bake according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
If needed, sand the edges and the backside of the pendant. Apply varnish and hang the pendant on the leather cord.
