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!

Faux Jade Pendants - CHA Make & Take Project


Today in the Makin's Clay® Booth #1421 at the Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show in Anaheim, CA, Design Team members Candice Windham, Lisa Haney, Steph Ackerman, Irit Shalom and I will be showing attendees how to create their own Faux Jade pendants with Makin's Clay® and Makin's Brand® tools.  I recently shared instructions for creating this pendant with a JudiKins Clay Squisher, today I am sharing another version made with two Makin's® Texture Sheets - so you finished pendant is double sided!  If you are at the show, stop by and see their great new products, and make your own Faux Jade pendant with their Designers! 



Project Supplies:

Makin’s Clay® - White 60g
Makin’s® 3 Piece Circle Cutter Set Makin’s® Clay Tools
Makin’s® Cutting Mat
Makin’s® Texture Sheets – Any style 

Hauser Green Acrylic Paint

Kelly Green Acrylic Paint 
Hunter Green Acrylic Paint J
JudiKins™ Diamond Glaze
Large straw
Red satin cording 
Cornstarch 

Project Instructions:

Step #1 Add about a nickel sized amount of Hauser Green and Kelly Green acrylic paints to white Makin’s Clay®.

Step #2 Mix paint into clay to create a marbled effect. 



Step #3 Add about a pea sized amount of Hunter green
acrylic paint.

Step #4 Mix paint into clay to create a marbled effect.


 

Step #5 Apply a small amount of corn starch to each side of the two texture sheets which will touch the clay.

Step #6 Place ball of marbled clay between the two texture sheets and gently apply pressure to transfer the texture to the clay, flattening the clay to desired thickness.



Step #7 Remove top texture sheet, use circle cutter to cut circle from textured clay. 

Step #8 Use a large straw to make a hole in center of clay.



Step #9 Use your finger to smooth any rough edges of hole and outside of the clay edges.

Step #10 Apply Diamond Glaze, let dry. 

Step #11 Add red satin cording.

HINTS: If clay starts to dry during project, just spritz with water and kneed in fingers until soft again. Set aside the pendant to dry overnight or until clay is completely dry.
