These easy to make pendants can be personalised with any name for a unique little present!

Just some tips - use an enamel paint pen (marabu brilliant painter in 1-2mm is good) and varnish with a water based varnish, but dont waste money on a brand name like fimo or sculpty all you need is Clear POLYURETHANE GLOSS Varnish you can find it cheap on ebay. the water based varnish wont react with the fimo and turn it sticky :) Hope thats helpful :) x
