how to make polymer clay jewelry

Every woman knows how difficult a good addition to the jewelry! Friends invited me to a party in the style of the sixties. I found a beautiful dress quickly. But I could not find the accessories.

Polymer Clay
There are different brands of polymer clay on the market. They are all composed of the basic materials. Any brand will work for making polymer jewelry.
Polymer clay  should be different colors.

Work surface
Good surfaces to work on include Plexiglas, glass cutting boards, Formica or marble.

Conditioning Tools
Your hands can do it all. Use your hands to warm, knead and smooth the clay. A pasta machine will speed the process of conditioning the clay.

Cutting Tools
You need a sharp blade to make clean cuts and not distort your shape. Tissue slicers are made especially for polymer clay.

Work in a well-ventilated area when curing polymer clay. Opening a kitchen window or door is advised.

 

Work the clay in your hands, softening it.  Roll a thin sausage.

 

Roll out second piece of clay and knead to form a round shape. The round shape should be such that it would have been possible to wrap the sausage. So we repeat once more, doing 9 or 12 sausages.

 

Putting them into cubes 3 pieces. Add the black clay.

 

Roll out a large enough piece of clay black and wrap the whole stack on the sides. When the workpiece has the right size, its cool for 5 minutes in the refrigerator.
Now carefully cut off from the resulting  rectangles.

 


Cure the polymer clay in the oven by baking it at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for thirty minutes per every quarter inch of thickness of the piece. Remove the cured clay and set it on a cooling rack overnight.

Paint additional details onto the piece. Mount any stones or accent pieces by gluing them in the grooves or holes made for them prior to curing. Insert the pendant wire bails, head-pins or jewelry wire.
