Tip: Because we’re colouring the Jewelry Clay with several
drops of alcohol ink, it will be much softer than usual and will not hold its
shape for very long after the texture is applied. You will need to work quickly
when applying the beads before the clay slumps and the design disappears. Before
you begin, put the gloves on because the Jewelry Clay is sticky and when you
add the colorant, it will be quite messy.
Measure out equal parts of Part A and Part B.
Mix the two parts together thoroughly until no
Dust your gloves with the talcum powder. Add two drops
of alcohol ink and mix it in thoroughly. If the clay begins to stick to the
gloves, powder them again. Add two more drops of alcohol ink and work it into
the clay until it is evenly colored.
Press the Jewelry Clay into the mold and smooth off the surface
and neaten up the edges.
Place the texture sheet over the Clay and press it
evenly into the surface. Remove.
Sprinkle the micro-beads onto the pattern in the clay and

Press the micro-beads into the surface.
After the Jewelry Clay® has cured for 24 hours, you can
easily remove the cast from the mold.
Mix the 5-minute epoxy adhesive according to the
manufacturer’s instructions. Apply a small amount to the hollow of the bail and
center it on the back of the heart. Once the epoxy has cured, thread it on a
chain and it’s ready to wear.
