Souffle Rustic Imprinted Pendant

Starting at $2.79

This unique pendant can be worn with casual as well as office wear.  The touch of gold in the background of the image highlights the gold on the pendant. Note: The paper used for my transfer is Hammermill (Inkjet or Copy Plus)  Do not use a recycled paper as they tend to have a very thin sheet of plastic between the paper fiber.   Design by syndee holt

    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® Work ‘n Bake Clay 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.
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 ¼" (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.
Mix half the Souffle Latte and Igloo to about 4 parts of Latte and 1 part Igloo. Sheet out the mixed color on the second from widest setting on your Clay Conditioning Machine. Set aside.
Remove the plastic covering from the top of the gelli plate and dip a small amount of the Gold paint onto your brush. Swirl the brush across the gelli plate in a random pattern. If you can see the paint plainly, you probably have too much paint. Swipe a baby wipe down the center to remove some of the paint and re-swirl with the brush.
Quickly place your sheet of clay face down on the plate and press gently with your hand. Repeat with the other hand (to avoid finger voids). Do NOT rub the clay as it will stretch and smear the pattern. Quickly remove the sheet of clay and clean the gelli plate with a baby wipe. Set aside to allow the paint to dry (only takes a couple of minutes).
Place the sheet of clay (should be slightly larger than the selected b/w transfer image) on a sheet of wax paper or deli paper (so the clay doesn’t leach). Trim the transfer to leave about a ¼ inch selvage around each edge and place facedown on the sheet of clay. Add a small amount of hand sanitizer and quickly cover the ENTIRE sheet of paper. (If you don’t cover the entire paper, it will curl and cause bubbles). At this point, you can see through the paper and look for bubbles and firmly wipe them out the edges.
Allow the transfer to set without moving it until it is almost dry. Rewet with the hand sanitizer again and press out any air bubbles you can see. Allow to set for a couple of minutes. Gently pull up a corner and see how the transfer is working. If it hasn’t transferred completely, just put the paper back down and add some more hand sanitizer. Slowly pull the paper up from the clay and admire your transfer with glints of gold paint shiny through!
Allow the transfer to set about 5 minutes before using a cutter or template to cut out your pendant shape. The ink dries into the Souffle surface very quickly, so you can continue with the project.
Using a small soft brush, add some of the dark brown pastel around the edges of the pendant, smoothing out the color with your finger. A little goes a long way!
Roll the 18K Gold out on a setting just thinner than the middle setting on your machine. I textured my gold with a small piece of stair tred (like sand paper). Trim a band to place across the bottom of the pendant and double up the textured piece (texture out) and trim two small strips to make the loops at the top. The loops will be glued to the back of the pendant after baking, so leave small strips of the loop at the back for this. Create the loops around the stick. Carefully remove the loop strips from the back of the pendant for baking. (NOTE: if the pendant is baked in place on the loops, it can cause the pendant to slump.)
Bake the loops (on the stick) and the pendant according to the directions in Step 1. Once the clay has cooled, glue the loops into place on the back of the pendant. A diluted thin coat of matte glaze will seal the pendant if you wish! Loop the leather cording between the clay loops and enjoy!
