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?
Aztec Clay Pendant
– Sculpey Soufflé Clay
– Clay roller
– Clay slicer (I used the Super Slicer with handles)
– Clay knife
– Needle end pointer
– Wax paper
– Jump rings
– Spring ring clasp
Step 1: Draw yourself an Aztec template. Copy your template onto another piece of paper so that you have two templates. Cut out the details out of one of your templates.
Step 2: Take out the Soufflé clay you are planning to use for your project.
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).
Step 4: Place the template over the clay. Use the clay slicer and clay knife to remove the excess clay.
Step 5: (Time to work on the details) Repeat Step 3 with the other two Soufflé clay.
Step 6: Place both detailed pieces onto your main piece. Use the clay slicer to remove any excess clay.
Step 7: Use the Needle End Pointer to make two holes in your piece of jewelry.
Step 8: Place your jewelry on an oven-proof glass or metal surface. Bake it in the oven at 275 degrees F for about 30 minutes per ¼ in.
Step 9: Once your jewelry has cooled off, use the pliers to add jump rings, chain and spring clasp onto it. (If you want to see how to attach the jump rings and chain, you can check this out: $3 DIY Charm Necklace.)
Step 10: ENJOY!
P.S. Feel free to make a bunch more! That’s what I did!
And what do you think of the pendants? Aren’t they great?!
I absolutely love the feel of them too! The Soufflé Clay makes them feel suede like, it’s wonderful.
