I made my first clay pendants  Smiley I never thought polymer clay could be so much fun.  I used retro pictures from the sixties and added a few rhinestones ( the hot fix type, they glued themselves to the clay while baking). I'm thinking of putting them on a silver wire choker or turn them into earrings...what do you think?

That's what I was wondering!  I have a bunch of clay at home that I would like to use up doing something like this.  Please share!

Beautiful illustration choices by the way!

I too would love to know how you got the pics on the clay! Is it a special type of poylmer, or just one with a light base?

I'm sort of thinking photocopies to transfer like on silly putty! haha!

Anyway, they are beautiful!

I don't want to step on any toes by attempting to answer that question, but...

When you go and buy clay, I do believe (though, this is in my local store area, so I don't know if it applies to everyone), in the clay isle, there are photo transferring kits specifically for polymer clays, that I have seen that show that same effect.  I don't know how they work, but I'm sure the kit explains it. 

They look very awesome. How thick are the pendents?  Would they be too heavy for earrings?

Thank you for the replies! Smiley

I used fimo classic mixed with fimo soft ( with glitters ). The transfer is really easy, i've used it before on fabric and i love it!
This is what you need : a laser copy of your image, a toothbrush or a spoon & cloth and some turpentine ( or white spirit, is also good )
Don't forget to flip your image if you have text on it or people & pets.
Cut out your print, put it face down on the clay and make sure it really sticks (burnish it with the spoon or your fingers) then i soak my toothbrush in the turpentine ( or a cloth, you choose )and rub it gently on the back of my print ( it becomes translucent). Then i use the back of my toothbrush ( or the back of the spoon) to burnish. Peel of the paper when you're done (i use mine twice because there is enough ink usually). Then bake and coat with acrylic varnish and that's it! Smiley

Gestalta: they are not heavy at all, i was surprised! They are between 3 and 4mm.
