Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to Makin's Clay Halloween month!
Let me first say that I don't celebrate this holiday, but I sure love it.
I love the colors, the images and the overall feeling of those ghosts, bats and pumpkins and I like them so much that I create a lot of projects using those images even without any tight connection to the main meaning of Halloween.
So for this post I decided to make a fancy scary necklace and those are the steps to make the very similar one if you like mine.
1. Using your Makin's Ultimate Clay Extruder and the disk with 5 round holes make 5 long round strips from Makin's black Clay. For now let them all air dry a bit and move to the second step.
3. Use Halloween B cutters set with another texture sheet from the very same set over the black clay sheet and cut some Halloween shapes. Cut a couple of ghosts from white Makin's clay.
I wasn't sure if I want black or white shapes over my necklace, so I made these and those and as I finally used the white ghosts I used the left overs for another project. I only used one black bat on the top of the pendant later.
4. Roll all 5 round strings together and cover them with a mix of shiny pigments.
I used Pearl Ex ones, but you can try any pigments you own.
Cover the ghost with a thin layer of liquid resin /glaze and add some clear glitter and let it dry. Add a simple magnetic closure to the back with good jewelry glue.
My tip: buy a cheap $1 store jewelry piece with magnetic closure (bracelets usually cost around $1) just to use their closure as at least here, in Israel, the closure only costs more than $1 for a piece.
Arrange your fancy scary necklace as seen and enjoy!
