Premo™ 18K Mica Shift Pendant

Starting at $2.79

This jaunty little pendant is a great way to try out the amazing mica shift effect.  Or if you are a “Shift Expert”, you will be able to whip these cool little pendants out!  I love the pendant shape created with the irregular shaped Sculpey cutters too.

    Getting Started:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Oven-Safe Work Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

    Baking:
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Sheet a small portion of the conditioned 18k Gold clay on the widest setting on the Clay Conditioning Machine. Spray your stamp with water and place the clay on the stamp. Put a sheet of clean paper over the clay and put the entire stack on a smooth hard floor and step on the stamp. I step on my stamp from all 4 sides before I pick it up and gently peel the paper and the clay from the stamp. This gives me a deep, even emboss of the design.
Press the embossed sheet of clay to the smooth tile. Slightly bend your blade with your thumbs and slice off a small portion of the top layer of the texture. Continue across the texture until the upper portions are all removed.
You can use an acrylic roller to lightly roll across the top of the finished layer to help smooth and even the layer out a little.
Sheet out another piece of the 18k on the next to widest setting and place the patterning sheet on top of this. Put a piece of the plastic deli paper on top of the clay and firmly press the largest triangle cutter into the stack. Wiggle the cutter a little and remove it. See how the plastic paper cause the edges of the shape to round slightly?
Use the smallest heart cutter to cut out an off center heart. Set aside.
Make a small, thin sheet of the 18k and put it on the smooth tile. Press out 5 or 6 of the small hearts. Use the edge of your blade to gently slide under the hearts to pick them up.
Use a needle tool to put a small home in the corner of each of the small hearts and at the top and bottom edges of the triangle. Or you can use a hand drill (pin vise shown) after baking. Bake as directed above in Step 1.
Assemble as shown, adjusting the length of your eye pins to hang the little hearts at different lengths below.
NOTE: you may want to also add a thin coat of Sculpey Gloss Glaze to the pendant to really accent the mica shift!
