This is one of the necklaces I showcased at the Craft and Hobby Show this week. It features one of the first items I made with our new clay
in a mold.
Envirotex Jewelry Clay is so easy to work with. I mixed a small batch and placed/pushed it into the mold. I let the resin clay cure for 5 hours in the mold and when I removed it I could see that it captured every line and shape in the mold. I used metallic wax to colour it. I'll show you this technique in the next few weeks.
I simply glued my clay lady to a piece of filigree and then attached it to the necklace.
The molds are from Paula Radke. She designed them to use with her glass clay.
I added a little gold Pearl-Ex to my clay when I mixed it. This is how my piece looked right out of the mold. Coloring it made it my own.
Envirotex Jewelry Clay just launched on Friday January 11th. I will let you know when it starts shipping to stores!
