    Step 3

    Firstly,roll out your red air-dry clay flat. Make sure that you've evenly flattened the clay and keep in mind that the circumcumference of the flattened clay is wider than the heart you intend to make.
    P.S.:Do not make it too thin!

    This is how it would look :)
    Let the clay heart dry off completely on its own.
    P.S.: You could even use your hair dryer too quicken the drying process.

    Step 8

    Once your cute heart is dry, take the black marker and colour the edges of the heart black.
    For an alteration you could even outline the heart if you want ;)

    (In this photo the edge looks shiny, thats because I took the pic after decoupage :p)

    Step 10

    Decoupage Time!!
    I prefer to use decoupage and water in the ratio of 3:2 ,i.e., for every 3 drops of decoupage glue, 2 drops of water are required.
    Once you've made the mix (according to the size of your heart) take a paintbruh and decoupage each side of the heart at a time after the first side dries (use the blower to dry each side quickly)

    Step 11

    This is how it would look after you've decoupaged the heart.
    You could repeat Step#10 once or twice but its very important to let each layer of decoupage glue to dry off thoroghly.
    PS: Do not overdo it ;)

    Note: I chose to outline my heart in Step#8

    Step 12

    Just a step away from 'Be Dazzling' it!!

    Note: The heart in the pic is not outlined with the marker although the edges are in black.

  • How to make a charm necklace. Be Dazzle D Heart <3 - Step 13
    Step 13

    Outline the heart with Black Swarovski Stickers.Make sure that the hole is not closely covered and that it has smart enough space for the charm loop/jump ring to go through. Stick the Red Swarovski stickers inside the heart.
    All most there!

    Step 14

    Open up the Charm loop ajar (with the help of a plier) so that the loop easily passes through the hole.
    Next, Seal the Deal!
    Close the loop and it is done!!

    All thats left it to FLAUNT IT!!!
