Fantasy Pendant

I have been playing with EnviroTex jewelry resin and clay the last few weeks and am in love with this product- and can't wait to show you how fun it is to create stamped images from The Rubber Cafe'!
 
Today my pendant is featuring the stamped image Woman on Moon from The Rubber Cafe'. You can't believe how incredibly fun this is - and fairly easy as the clay itself only needs to air dry in order to cure.  

I've put together a small tutorial to walk you through the process.
 

I started by mixing my Jewelry Clay.
It's a really easy process of taking equal amounts of the two compounds and squishing them together until they are evenly mixed.

 
I then rolled the clay out flat on my craft mat.
 
 
I stamped my image into the clay with Stazon ink and then trimmed it to a size that would fit in my Spellbinders Media Mixage Bezel

 
After pressing the clay firmly into the Bezel I painted it with Perfect Pearls Powder. These are amazing and really bring my image to life don't you think!
 
 
I don't remember where I got the gold star charm but you can find something similar in the jewelry isle of any craft store.  I pressed the charm into the clay and then I sprinkled Stampendous Champagne Crushed Glass Glitter along the edge of the Bezel and pressed it into the clay with my finger.


You can continue to work with the clay for the first 2 hours and it's easy to press things into it.  Beads, bangles, glitter and more will be permanently held in place when the clay is cured.
 
At this point I set the Bezel aside for 24 hours to let it cure.
I decided to paint a layer of Resin on the pendant to give it a nice glossy finish. 

Here is another closer look at the finished pendant.
 
 
I hope you enjoyed today's jewelry project!  
I will be back soon with another one and I'd love to hear what you think of this one!

Where can we get the jewelry clay? I looked at Hobby Lobby and Michaels without any luck. I love this project and really want to try it.
