Aztec Clay Pendant - Tutorial using Sculpey Soufflé Clay

Have you heard of Sculpey’s NEW Souffle Clay? It’s a lightweight clay that is PERFECT for jewelry making. I made a bunch of jewelry with it and I can’t get over how light the clay is. It comes in a bunch of awesome colors and BONUS you can mix them together to create custom colors too!

What do you think of the Aztec Clay Pendants I made? They are super easy to make and such a fun design. Want to make some too?

Step 3: Take out the clay you need for the main part of the pendant and place it on a piece of wax paper. Roll it into a ball and use the clay roller to roll it to your desired thickness (mine were a little less than ¼in).

    i love the Sculpey clay tools, especially that slicer. It makes cutting straight lines so easy. Careful though, it’s super sharp and I ended up slicing into my finger when I was cleaning it. Oops!
