Hey all creative people,

Handmade gifts are always very special. It creates a life long sweet memory to cherish.
In this video, We are showing two easy pendants DIY which are great for gifts for Diwali, Christmas, Birthdays and much more.

 
Materials required: 

  1. Shilpkar (white Mseal)

  2. Acrylic colours and paint brushes

  3. Wooden stamp

  4. Talcum powder

  5. Cutter

  6. Half cutted pearls (Self adhesive pearls)

  7. Glue

  8. Marker

  9. Toothpick for making hole

 

Carved Pendant

 

 

 

Step 1: Shilpkar comes with two clays, one is resin and other one is hardener. Apply talcum powder to your hand to avoid stickiness of the clay and mix both clays well till you get an even dough. After mixing both clays well, It will turn into white colour. Roll the clay like a ball.

Step 2: Apply talcum powder to the surface where you are going to give shape to the clay. Flatten your clay in an oval shape by pressing the clay with your fingers.

Step 3: Once you get your desired oval shape. Apply talcum powder to the top surface of the clay, so that our wooden stamp will not stick to the clay and come off very easily.

Step 4: Press your wooden stamp on the clay to get carved effect on the pendant.

Step 5: Make a hole on the top of the pendant with the help of toothpick to make the pendant wearable. (Once the clay gets hardened, you will not be able to make a hole afterwards)

Step 6: Time to add pretty colours to the pendants. For giving a royal touch to this one, I am going on with Fevicryl metallic gold acrylic colour for the non carved area of the pendants. You will have to do several coats depending on how opaque you want your pendant to be (let each coat dry completely before starting with next one) and then for colouring the carved area I am using Fevicryl metallic copper and pearl blue colour. Add one pearl in the centre with glue.

Step 7: Let the pendant dry depending on the instructions of your clay. My clay is fast drying so I have to keep it for drying for about 1 hour.

Step 8: Add strings to make it wearable.

Step 4: Cut the heart outline with the help of cutter and smooth out the edges by using flat surface of cutter's blade.

Step 5: Make a hole using a toothpick on the top right of the pendant If you want it to be tilted while wearing, (Once the clay gets hardened, you will not be able to make a hole afterwards)

Step 6: Colour your pendant. I have used Fevicryl pearl green acrylic colour.

Step 7: Add pearls to the pendants as you like.

Step 8: Let the pendant dry depending on the instructions of your clay. My clay is fast drying so I have to keep it for drying for about 1 hour.
