DIY | TEA & CRAFTS

Craft handmade polymer clay bunting necklace header

Ah dear, it has been aaages since I last posted on here! I've been so hectic the last month or so - applying for jobs, working hard on my Clinical Psychology Doctorate application (eeek!), working and catching up with friends. I have managed to squeeze in some arts and crafting (accompanied by gallons of tea) which I'm so pleased to finally have the time to share. Made for my good friend over at PurplePigCrafts, this piece was inspired by the Aztec Bunting Necklace I created in a previous post and just generally the abundance of triangles and tribal patterns about. Keep reading to find out how I made it...

 

1. Roll out some white Fimo Soft Oven Hardening Clay to your desired thickness.

2. Cut out three small triangles and poke a hole through the top middle of each.

3. Place on a baking tray and pop in the oven to bake as per instructions on the packaging.

4. Once completely cool, decorate with acrylic paint and add gold details with DecoArt's Gold Enamel.

5. Once dry, protect your paintwork with Fimo Gloss Varnish

6. Next add a large Gold Plated Jump Ring to each triangle and attach them to a Gold Plated Trace Chain

It was quite tricky to get the triangles in exactly the right place on the chain but once I'd found it, I was really pleased with how the triangles hung and generally just really pleased with the necklace.

What do you think?
