I was going through my pantry and found this really ooooold alphabet letters pasta and thought I needed to give it a proper use (I really CAN'T throw anything away that easily).
Please excuse the super crappy quality of the pics, my cam thinks she needs vacations...
****Estimated time does not include drying time****
Flatten a piece of modelling clay, be carefull not to make it too thin, or it might break after drying.
Cut out with a knife or an x-acto blade the shape you want your pendant to have.
Pick out from the 478567678437567 words from your package the ones you'll need. Good luck with that :)
Decide your layout for the words and then apply on top of your clay base. Apply some pressure (very gently) when placing the words so that they leave their mark on the clay. Set is aside for a while to dry and it's half dry, CAREFULLY remove the words.
Oh, you also need to make a small hole at the top (for the jump ring)!
Now we need to paint the words. The thing is, this kind of pasta is small as hell and won't be easy to paint. The best solution is to stick them on a piece of clay so that they remain failry steady while you'r painting. I used nail polish ( a girl's best friend). Let them dry....
Once your clay base is dry, go mad with the spray paint and give it a good shower of paint. I love all things silver, so silver it is.
Is the paint dry? Yes? Goooood... Now comes the fun part (or not): glueing those tiny words to the clay base. I used white glue (it dries clear)and a brush to do it. All you have to do is apply some glue to the back of the words and put them back where they belong.
After that, slip a jump ring through the hole at the top.
And that's it! Pretty easy :)
