Step 1: Apply a thin layer of QuickCure Clay to the bottom of the bezel and build up the sides. This is your base. As it cures it will expand and make a tight fit. Make a snake about 1/8” thick and apply to your base, as shown.
Step 2: Using a paper clip pull inward from the center of the worm to the center of the flower, these are the flower petals. When done do the same thing but pull out from the opposite direction using the same grooves. It should look like step 3 when you’re done.
Step 3: Add a ¼” ball to the center and tap it down a bit.
Step 4: Poke holes with the pick and shape the center.
Step 5: This is your completed flower. Cure the pendant using a Ranger Heat It Craft tool or embossing heat gun. Hold the heat tool at the edge of the pendant. It will take about 2 minutes to cure. It cures in a wave and will smoke a little. It will be hot like it came out of an oven. Let it cool for a few minutes before handling.
Step 6: Paint the entire clay piece with Tim Holtz Pearl Mixative.
Step 7: Paint the entire clay piece with Alchemy Alcohol Pearl.
Step 8: Add a touch of Sublime Alcohol Pearl near the center. If there is any unpainted clay showing you can paint that as well.
Step 9: Add Deception Alcohol Pearl on the center.
Step 10: Add Splendor Alcohol Pearl around the center to darken and add depth. Pull a little up the side here and there for hints of color.
You can add more Alchemy Alcohol Pearl or Pearl Mixative if you go too far with any of the colors, so it’s not a problem.
