Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

Welcome to my NEW blog! For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for almost 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Makin's Clay® Faux Jade Pendant


It's easy to create faux jade with Makin's Clay®, JudiKins™ Clay Squishers, and DecoArt® paints.

Faux Jade Pendant  

Materials:

Makin’s Clay® (www.makins-usa.com)
    - White 60g
            - Round Clay Cutters 
            - Clay Tools 
            - Cutting Mat
DecoArt®(www.decoart.com)            
           - Americana® Acrylic - Hauser Green Light, Plantation Pine
           - Americana® Multi-Surface Satin™-    Turf Green
JudiKins™ (www.judikins.com
    - Clay Squisher - “Japan”
            - Diamond Glaze™
Straw, red satin cording 

Instructions:


Begin mixing white Makin’s Clay® with DecoArt® Turf Green and Hauser Green Light
acrylic paint (about a nickel sized amount of each color).   Do not mix entirely - you want there to be slight marbling of the colors.  Add a small drop of DecoArt® Plantation Pine paint and mix in lightly, again marbling the darker green paint.   










Use Clay Roller to roll clay to about 1/4”.  Place onto JudiKins™ Clay Squisher over desired pattern and roll again lightly to impress pattern onto clay.  

Use largest circle cutter from 3 piece set and cut circle from impressed clay.  


Smooth edges of circle with fingers.  Use straw to cut hole in center of clay circle.   

Apply JudiKins™ Diamond Glaze™ to front and sides.  Let dry, apply to back.  Let dry and add red satin cording. 


60g of Makin's Clay® will give you enough faux jade to make many pendants - each one will be unique and have it's own color variations.
