Recently, I created a project using Makin's Clay® called Grapevine Vase which is featured on the Makin’s Clay® blog. I wanted the vase to look like it was made out of stone so I used a recipe of white clay, black acrylic paint, and pepper to achieve a faux stone look. Using the same recipe from the vase project, I made small rocks to create this bracelet, earrings, and pendant.
For the bracelet, I made the rocks a consistent size by rolling out the clay and using the same cutter for each rock.
For the earrings, I used the same cutter but used one cutout for the smallest rock, two cutouts for the next, and three for the biggest rock.
For the pendant, I used the leftover clay to make a flat stone and stamped the word, ‘STRENGTH’ on the front. I inserted an eye pin before the clay dried.
For the rocks in the bracelet and earrings, I drilled the holes with an electric drill after they dried.
I antiqued all of the rocks by painting on black acrylic paint and immediately rinsing it off.
