This polymer clay sunset pendant tutorial will introduce you to some basic steps on how to make your own easy pendants to wear this summer. With just a few basic tools and basic skills, you too can create a delightful summer pendant to wear around town.


Materials:

Polymer Clay Sunset Pendant Tutorial

  • Sunset Pendant Tutorial STEPS by Katie Oskin of KatersAcresFully condition your Premo! polymer clay.
  • Choose colors to make a simple Skinner Blend. This particular blend was made using my Sunset Skinner Blend recipe.
  • Cut out a small portion of the blend.
  • Place on a sheet of black clay rolled on the 2nd largest setting of your pasta machine.
  • Cut out any shape (using cutters or a blade) that is pleasing to your eye.
  • Use your finger (check out the Christi Twisty technique) or a stamp to lightly texture the background.
  • Add some light blue (or white) lines in various places for clouds.
  • Add a few green “islands” if you’d like as well.
  • Use a sculpting tool to “paint” the clouds and give them texture. Do the same for the islands.
  • Now you need a focal point … why not some lovely palm trees? Not only that, but you could also use birds or a hammock, an owl or some deer, or how about a bear? Not to mention that you could add some water to the bottom for a wide variety of other options too.
  • When you are finished add some highlights with some mica powders or chalk powders.
  • Bake your pendant for 45 minutes at 275 degrees.
  • After baking, add a bail to your pendant. Finish as desired.

See this article for an example on backing your piece and why it’s important to finish your pendant properly.
