Clay Pendants

Just time for a quick craft tonight, I've been getting myself lost in Blogspace looking at all the wonderful inspiration and creations out there!  There really is some fabulous stuff.

I decided to use a product I bought from a charity (thrift) shop a while ago for the grand price of 30p, in combination with some air drying clay.  This 'coaster' made a great impression on the clay.

I made these two shapes that lend themselves to being pendants or keyrings:
I think I may have to have another go, the clay I was using was a bit crumbly so they wouldn't come out of the moulds easily.  I may have to treat myself to some more.

When I do get them looking right, I think painting them in two colours will bring out the raised flourishes perfectly.

I've been reading Roald Dahl's autobiography recently, the first one called 'Boy', goodness me it's scary, no wonder the stories he wrote were like they are. Enough to give anyone nightmares! 

On a cheerier note, my family and I went to see the cartoon adventure, 'Despicable Me' today, in 3-d, at the cinema. I loved it - possibly more than my  two three (counting husband) boys did!

Thank you for looking and for any comments,
See you tomorrow,

I love how you see the potential in everything! Looking forward to seeing some more clay creations, those flourishes are fab!

Devvie is desperate to see Despicable Me - she can already quote the adverts word for word :P

Lov your clay creations will keep an eye out for some that you've coloured up.

I'm taking DS to see Despicable Me, looks like I might enjoy it. x

Mmm clever idea. Could you spray the surface of the clay with something before embossing to make it less crumbly? Jaqui x
