This new pendant is my opportunity to show you why our products work so well together.
The finished pendant is a new favorite.
The molds are from glass artist Paula Radke. I purchased them last year at the Bead and Button show. They are extremely detailed. I love them.
Our Jewelry Clay works beautifully for mold making projects. As you can see I pressed a small left over piece of clay into my mold like this.
Later, I mixed a small batch of Jewelry Resin and coloured it with a gold Luminarte Primary Elements Artist Pigment.
Here is my cabochon right out of the mold. You might think that the clay side was more detailed.
I wanted to attach my cabochon to a filigree background. So I made a small batch of Jewelry Clay and used it as my attachment mechanism. This clay is truly useful!
Then I brushed more of the gold Luminarte Primary Elements Artist Pigment to the back side to make my piece look prettier.
See, that looks much more polished.
I painted my entire cabochon with an acrylic paint.
The clay really looks great with acrylic paint doesn't it?
However, my last step was to apply metallic wax in a multitude of colours. Now you can't tell which side is clay and which side is resin! My last step was to seal everything with Resin Spray.
