Good Impressions: Creating Two-Tone Charms
Follow these steps to create pendants and charms with real depth.
- Flexible clay mold or wax seal
- Polymer clay
- Craft knife
- Rubber gloves
- Cookie cutters
- Fine-point tool
If using a mold, fill with clay then shave away excess clay with craft knife until it's flush with mold. If using a wax seal, like the tree, press clay into the seal, then use craft knife to shave away excess clay until flush with metal.
Refrigerate for 20 minutes; invert and wiggle mold to free silhouette, or use the tip of knife to pry it out.
Center silhouette on 1/16-inch-thick base, and press lightly into place (wear rubber gloves to prevent fingerprints).
Cut out border shape with a cutter, create a hole with pointed tool, and bake.
Refrigerate for 20 minutes, pry tree from seal with knife and proceed with steps 1 to 4.
