Use Czextuder and LC Disk 5 and other tools from LUCY CLAY to create a simple pendant from polymer clay.
Kája has been exploring art ever since she could hold a pencil. The love for art, architecture and photography has led her to Pilsen’s Secondary school of Civil Engineering, where she’s currently studying. There, she developed a passion for the Science and Math behind materials, something that she wants to pursue in the future. Only recently did she delve into polymer clays after starting work at Lucy Clay in 2020.
Petra lives near Pilsen, Czech Republic. Ever since childhood, she has loved learning new craft techniques. By age fifteen, she began studying art at various art schools in Pilsen before receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Industrial Design at the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art, University of West Bohemia. She has been working for LUCY CLAY since 2014.
Materials and tools:
- Polymer clay (white, black and red)
- LC Machine
- Czextuder + LC Disk 5 (extension with circle shape)
- Circle cookie cutter (in size of the Czextruder barrel)
- LC Shape Plate 16
- Scalpel, blade
- Screw eye, jump ring and chain
Condition polymer clay. Prepare sheet (about 1 – 2 mm thick) in red, white, and black color. Cut about 10 circles from each sheet using a cookie cutter – in the size of the Czextruder barrel.
Stack the circles on top of one another. You can reduce the diameter of the stack slightly by rolling with your hand.
Put it into the Czextruder. Use the extension with circle shape from LC Disk 5 and extrude the clay.
Cut the extruded clay in thin slices. Try to cut all slices of the same thickness. You can use LC Slicer or LC Mini Slicer.
Prepare sheet (about 1 – 2 mm thick) in black color and place the slices on it.
Cut the shape using the LC Shape Plate 16. Bake in the oven according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Backfill the baked shape with the black polymer clay and bake again.
Let it cool down and sand it.
Drill a hole. Hang the pendant on the chain. You are done.
