Twisted Metal Pendant-Makin's Clay

Hello Makers!

Today I bring you a nice, but quick to make project. I call it a Twisted Metal pendant. It is made using Makin's Clay. I am fond of using stamps and mark making tools to make pendants, I also enjoy free style sculpting as well. This pendant literally took 20 minutes to make.

Run the clay through the pasta machine to the third thickest setting, cut a long rectangle shape. Mine measures 1.5 inches in width and about 6 inches in length. Slightly bend the clay in half, don't make a seam or hard edge; instead, keep it rounded. Then take different sections and twisted in any directions and glue the ends.

Let the clay cure for 24 hours, I then rubbed on metallic Silver Gilder's Paste Wax, it gives it a nice color and protects the clay. You can poke hole for the bail or in my case I made a wire wrapped bail.

 Voila! you're done and now you have a stylish pendant. Be sure to visit the Makin's Clay blog for more project ideas.
