Botanical Pendant

Hello, Creative  Friends and Fans!! Jenn here today to share with you how easy it is to create jewelry using Creative Paperclay® Modeling Material! I have created this Botanical Pendant doing just that!

Supplies Needed:
A mold or a stamp (I used a stamp)
Paints
File block (meant for fingernails)
Satin cord
Silver jewelry findings
Charms
Necklace connector

First, roll out some Creative Paperclay® Modeling Material onto a craft mat or other non-stick surface. Once it is the thickness you desire for your pendant, stamp the shape into it. Cut off excess and use a paintbrush handle or stick to put a hole in the top. Set this aside to dry for 1-2 days.

Once your pendant is dry, use a filing block to smooth any rough edges and remove all the dust.
Next, prepare your satin rope using findings. Attach clasp ends using a strong adhesive to ensure that it holds.

Next, Paint your pendant in your desired color and allow it to dry. Finally, loop rope through a silver ring, attach to your pendant using a large jump ring. Add charms to the jump ring and there you have it! A beautiful and simple piece of jewelry you can give as a gift or wear yourself!

For your convenience Creative Paperclay® products are available at our online store.
They are also available at the following retailers:

Doll Up Bisque Ware with Creative Paperclay®

 I have kept my pencils in the bisque ware vase for years but decided it needed a facelift and what would be better than using Creative Paperclay® to jazz it up.

SUPPLIES
Creative Paperclay®
Bisque ware vase
Stamps & molds
Adhesive size
Metal leaf
Image transfer
After transferring an image onto the vase, I added stamped and molded Creative Paperclay® embellishments and let it dry.

The image transfer here was done with a toner image and Chartpak blender pen.



















I then added a dirty wash to the surface. A dirty wash is the dirty water from cleaning your paintbrushes. It is a great way to add a hint of color.






















I then applied an adhesive size for metal leaf onto the vase. I goes on white but when it becomes clear it is ready to apply the metal leaf. A large brush was used to remove the excess leaf. The inside was painted with a gold gesso. Great way to start the New Year is with a new look.

Dream in Color!

Embossed Hearts


Hello Creative Paperclay® Fans!! Jenn here today to share with you another unique way to use your paperclay! Making these embossed hearts is easier than you may think.

I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday season and that you are ready to get even more creative this year.

Have you ever used embossing folders? Have you tried to use them with Creative Paperclay®? Well, that is exactly how these adorable little hearts were created.

First, gather the supplies needed:
Creative Paperclay® modeling material
Selection of embossing folders
Rolling pin
Wax paper
Medium grit file
Tool to create small hole
Heart shaped cookie cutters



Once you have all your supplies ready, lay a sheet of wax paper down. Roll some paperclay into a ball and roll it out to the desired thickness using your rolling pin.


Next, place your rolled out clay into an embossing folder and close it. Use your rolling pin to make a nice impression of the pattern onto the clay.

Gently remove the embossed clay and place it back down on your wax paper. Using your cookie cutters, cut out as many hearts as desired. Make sure you remove the clay from the cookie cutters gently so you do not affect the pattern with fingers, nails, etc.  If you will be using your hearts to create jewelry, place a small hole in the top with a paper piercer. If your going to use them as embellishments you will not need the hole. I will be using my hearts for more than one project so some only some were pierced. Leave your cut out hearts on the wax paper to dry for the night. This may take longer depending on thickness of the hearts.

Once your hearts have dried they are ready to paint, stain, etc. and use to create jewelry or as embellishments on other projects. Use your file to gently remove all of the rough edges. If you look at the hearts below, you can see the before and after filing effect.


 I have painted one using an oxidized silver texture set from Art Anthology to show how they look painted.


I just love these hearts and how easy they were to create! I hope you are inspired to get some Creative Paperclay® and embossing folders and try this technique! the possibilities are endless!

Thanks so much for visiting the blog today and viewing my post!
