THE MAGIC PAINT SAGA AND POLYMER CLAY GOES ON AND ON

Last week I showed my dentist some pendants I did with polymer clay and I gave him the crosses I made him with Pebeo paints.  He asked me to make a pendant for his wife.  So, I decided I wanted to try a few things with polymer clay and Pebeo that I didn't do before but I only had a week to finish his request.  I had 7 days to get something done and I got a headache the size of Texas.  It was either work or nap so most of the time I napped.  In between I made some pendants and I tried something new.  Instead of having a flat side and a textured side I decided to do pendants with two textured sides.  To one of the textured sides I added Pebeo Prisme paint.

I used this texture sheet to make the pendants.  I ran the clay through the machine with this sheet, folded it over and cut out pendants so there was texture on both sides.  Some of the pendants were done with black clay that I mixed with the new silver glitter clay.  I put the paint directly on the clay without putting PYMII on them.  I also made some silver and gold ones that I did put PYMII on before I put the paint on.  I baked all of them and then put the paint on.  The black ones without the PYMII curled a little when the paint started drying.  The other ones didn't.  The textures started showing through the paint which really surprised me.  If you click on the picture below you will see the texture coming through on the two large football shaped pieces.


This paint has a mind of it's own and you never know what the end product is going to be.  Once the paint dries, I put one layer of Magic Glos UV resin on them and then sand and buff the sides and back.  Then I put one or two more coats of Magic Glos on.


This is the back side of the finished pendants.


The doctor loved the little hearts so he took two of them and is giving one to his daughter.

I have about 10 more to finish but it's going to have to wait till the monster headache goes back to Texas.
