Skull & Bones Polymer Clay Pendants

Its been a busy week again have gone back to school and we get used to the routine again.

So I've been adding some new items to my Etsy store and adding some final touches to some pieces that have been waiting to be finished.

With Halloween not so far away I thought I'd show you some new pendants I made using a perspex skull & bones roller I purchased quite a while ago from a lovely stall at Old Spitalfields Market.

It took a while to get the pattern how I wanted and I coated the pendants with some Lumiere paints to give them a more old and rustic feel and to finish and make them really stand out I added some of those Swarovski hot crystals I've been playing with lately to the skulls eyes, the Topaz colour really make the pendant stand out while the jet black crystals are a more subtle finish.

Faux Rose Quartz Polymer Clay


Following on from my post on Faux Jade with polymer clay, I decided to have a go at Faux Rose Quartz.

I found this free tutorial online from Polymer Clay Central Faux Rose Quartz, a great tutorial but I altered it slightly here's what I done.

To start I took some translucent clay and added a very small amount of red, I mixed the colour well until evenly mixed.  I them decided much like the faux jade tutorial to take some cuts from my mix and added a few more specks of the red clay, I rolled this through but this time not a thoroughly allowing the mix to have some darker speck of pink showing through.

I then mixed my iridescent glitter though my full mixed rose quartz again until it was evenly mixed through.

Then again much like my faux jade tutorial I decided to chopped the two mixes up using my blade and them randomly combined the two together to allow of a variation in colour.

This was then rolled until combined, but not overly as I didn't want to colours to blend together and there you go a faux rose quartz polymer clay mix.

Now I have to add at this point personally I don't like the finished result of using the iridescent flakes and would omit these next time.


 Here's what I create with my Faux Rose Quartz
