Polymer Earth Pendent
Promised you a DIY Earth Pendent made from polymer clay. Also #Crowdtap just happened to ask for a Spring DIY. Since Earth Day and Week falls in the spring, I decided to also share this with my friends at Crowdtap http://www.crowdtap.com.
What is Crowdtap? It is a neat site where brands and consumers come together to discuss what works and what doesn't. Sometimes brands will give away a ton of what they make for the members to share at a party with their friends. Members do surveys and fun activities, like this one, to earn points. For every 100 points your name gets put into a drawing for prizes like Amazon or Walmart gift cards. Sometimes it is for a huge product, like a power washer from Zep Cleaning Solutions. It changes all the time and its fun. It is also a good place to say what you really think about products. And you know what? THEY LISTEN. Last month I won $40 in gift cards. woohoo I'll let you know what the end of April brings.
THE TUTORIAL for DIY Earth Pendent
|STEP BY STEP POLYMER EARTH PENDENT|
I placed the picture order starting at the top and going down the right side of the large finished Earth pendent. 1. Your supplies, clay,foil, roller, chain, loop for chain 2. roll clay into a ball 3. flatten with your fist or roller and it flattens in its round shape. If it is lopsided, don't worry. The Earth actually is a little bit an oval more than a circle. 4. Write your name or date on the back and punch a hole, large enough to accommodate a large ring. 6. Roll green clay into a ball. 7. Flatten until it is thinner than the circle for the earth. 8. Cut continent or green land out of the green. 9.Press carefully onto the blue earth. If you want clouds or icecaps do the same with white polymer clay. Bake on foil, on a cookie sheet for 15 minutes at 240 degrees Fahrenheit. When it is done, it should still hold its color and feel like plastic . Let cool completely before you slip on the ring. Slide the chain or string or leather through the ring. Tie a knot for closure of you can use claw closures which can be found at any craft store.
Don't over bake or put on too high a heat. I forgot that it was 240 degrees and put them on 350!! for l5 minutes. I got the Earth after Armageddon OR girl scout mint cookies! Pendents are NOT EDIBLE. They make a nice project for kids in school, and are a nice remembrance of Earth Day.
