Polymer Clay Art Pendant Tutorials
The polymer clay art pendant tutorials on this page showcase a wide range of techniques. Everything from faux to antiquing is covered here.
There is something for everyone, from simple projects suitable for complete beginners all the way to complex, multi-step projects. Having said that, every tutorial is explained in step by step detail, so don't be intimidated. If you see something you would like to make, give it a try. You may be surprised, and even if you don't get it perfect the first time, you will have learned a new skill that you can incorporate into your next project.
Silk screening is a great way to add interest to your polymer clay jewelry. You can use it alone or as a backdrop to other techniques. Keep the colors simple or add a rainbow. The possibilities are only limited by the silk screen designs you can find. Fortunately for us polymer clayers, there are plenty to choose from, so take a look around and have fun with them.
In this two part African Savanna tutorial I'll be showing you how to make three
different zebra stripe polymer clay designs and then using them along
with faux elephant skin to make African Savanna polymer clay jewelry.
The zebra stripe techniques range from silk
screening, through Mokume Gane to caning, so this is a cool project for
everyone, from beginner to the more advanced.
In this Pebeo paint polymer clay project, I'll show you how to make a textured
polymer clay pendant, with small bezels that we will fill with Pebeo
paints and resin. I'll share some tips on how to manipulate the paint in
small spaces and how to fill the small spaces with resin without it
You can adapt the project to create many different
pieces. Just change up the shape, texture, colors, or all three. This is a
very versatile polymer clay jewelry project, using a combination of basic
techniques. Perfect for beginners.
This Queen of Hearts polymer clay project will incorporate a rose cane , as well as a Lisa Pavelka
Peel with a rose texture stamp and silver leaf. It will all be tied together
with a silver ring for a hanging point and a coat of resin for a shiny finish.
This project can be done with any shape pendant and can even be made into a
collar or bracelet, so have fun and experiment with the techniques shown.
is a very unpredicable medium, but I've been testing it out on various
projects for quite a while now, so hopefully, in this project I will be
able to give you some pointers to bring it a little more under control
and we will end up with a beautiful rusted polymer clay medallion.
This Boiling Bubbles polymer clay design is a follow on from my Faux
Coral and Lava tutorial above. If you haven't seen that video, you'll need to
watch it before you continue with this one.
this tutorial I'll be showing you how to use a basic back-filling
technique to create a stunning modern pendant to go with the Faux Coral
and Lava bracelet. The polymer clay techniques in this project are fun
to do, and I'll show you all the tips and tricks you need to make it
nice and easy to achieve a great result.
This polymer clay art pendant project is part two of the Kelp and Bubbles
earring project. In this second part we will be using the mod cane we
made in part one to create a beautifully, eye-catching pendant with a
hammered wire insert. This tutorial includes lots of information on
burnishing, joining seams and using Ice Resin. I love how this pendant
came out. I hope you enjoy making it.
In this polymer clay crackle tutorial, I'll be showing you how to create
a cracked earth, rustic crackle using a heat gun. We will also be
learning how to create a contained 3-part Skinner Blend, a symmetrical
border and exploring techniques with an extruder and antiquing.
Lots of fun techniques in this tutorial - have fun!
In this polymer clay and wirework tutorial I'll revisit the popular Starry Night technique and
another technique involving mint leaves. I'll also show a new stringing
method using wire and sari ribbon.
This tutorial is full of
cool tips and tricks and the design works really well with most veneers ,
so feel free to use any veneers you want with it. Have fun.
In this stamping polymer clay tutorial we will be making a pendant
with a twilight woods theme using a Skinner Blend, Mica Shift, stencils
This is a fun versatile polymer clay art design that
can be adapted to many different themes. You can switch it up by using
fall colors and a squirrel, spring colors and birds or summer colors and
flowers, bees or butterflies. Those are just a few ideas. See what you
can come up with and make your own design.
After showing these
polymer clay pendants at the end of my Translucent Silver Leaf Mokume Gane Tutorial,
it was requested by many different people that I do a project tutorial on them.
Well here it is...
In this tutorial, I have used pastels
for the background and black paint for antiquing. You can try different
leaves and paint colors, but why not also use mica powders, alcohol inks
or even gilders paste instead of the pastels. You can also highlight
the leaves with mica powder instead of antiquing them. The combinations
are endless with this project. Have fun with your polymer clay art designs!
In this faux opal tutorial I’ll demonstrate how to create a
deep blue opal cabochon and a rustic drift wood bezel.
I use a lot of different
techniques in this tutorial that can be used across many other projects. Feel
free to swap out the opal for any faux stone cabochon you want or even take
the bezel idea and apply it to beads, jars, coasters and many other projects. It’s
easy, fun and results in a stunning piece.
In this Masai Mara polymer clay pendant tutorial I'll show a beautiful
paint crackle with a silkscreened tribal pattern on top of the veneer. I'll
also use a crackle stamp and some paint to create another veneer and finally
everything will be tied together with a beautiful twisted border and bail.
This project is fun, easy and the techniques can be applied
to many other projects so don't be afraid to try out some new things. Have fun.
In this tutorial I'll show a cool technique using alcohol
ink and metal leaf to achieve faux ammolite. It's a fun, stunning technique
that can be used to create many faux stones.
If you don’t want to create a faux stone, just change up the colors. The result
will still be gorgeous. You don’t even have to crackle the clay with a heat gun.
You could run the metal leaf and clay through a pasta machine and then apply
the inks to create a more subtle crackle if you wanted.
