pretty pendant

this is a version of an original i saw on etsy it is absolutely beautiful you can see it using the link below.
this is a fairly simple project to do, it just takes a little time to let it bake and then for the paint and glaze to dry. i only put that its reasonably priced because it is to buy all of the initial materials you need, buy you can make a ton really quick. but have fun and i hope you like this tutorial, its my first one!

    knead the clay in your hand for about a minute to make it easier to use and roll about a quarter inch thick.

  3. How to make a heart shaped pendant. Corset Heart Pendant - Step 3 3

    cut out the heart and mark with a pin or something small where you want the rings to be and so you get them matched up right, i didnt do it so straight on this one, but you get the point.

  4. How to make a heart shaped pendant. Corset Heart Pendant - Step 4 4

    insert the jump rings with the seam into the clay, you dont want it showing it wont look as good, and put them in at a sort of angle so theyre not just sitting in there straight up.

  5. How to make a heart shaped pendant. Corset Heart Pendant - Step 5 5

    use something to push the edges of the clay down over the rings to secure them in place, like a pencil tip or something. dont worry if its ugly you'll paint that later. and insert the two eyepins in the top as shown.

  6. 6

    now bake according to manufacturers directions...be sure to let cool when out of the oven, for like five minutes or so.

    brush
    water

    glaze
    ribbon
    2 jump rings




  8. 8

    when the heart is cool out of the oven, you want to take the eye pins out and put a little super glue on the post of them and then re insert to make sure they wont come out later.

  9. How to make a heart shaped pendant. Corset Heart Pendant - Step 9 9

    sorry it switched to blue here, i did them on seperate days and didnt realize i took my pics of different ones.
    paint the edges black and a little onto the top of the heart all the way around like so.

  10. How to make a heart shaped pendant. Corset Heart Pendant - Step 10 10

    now dilute some paint in the water.

    paint with the diluted paint around the heart as you like. let dry.

  12. How to make a heart shaped pendant. Corset Heart Pendant - Step 12 12

    using my nail polish i 'glazed' the heart, its easier with nail polish because the drying time is really quick, as opposed to clear polyurethane that i used to use.

  13. How to make a heart shaped pendant. Corset Heart Pendant - Step 13 13

    finally, add the two jump rings on the top and lace it up with the ribbon and tie a bow and viola! i usually add a little guper glie in some inconspicuous plsaces to hold the bow together so it wont just fall apart.
