How to make an embellished/clay-covered locket
For beginners
Also posted here: http://beadladyangeli.blogspot.com/2009/03/diy-wednesday-cupcake-locket.html

What you need:
Metal locket
Strong polymer clay (I recommend Premo)
Texture sheets or rubber stamps
Craft knife
E6000 glue

Before you begin:

1. Condition the clay
2. Clean the locket. Wipe off any dirt and oils that may have been transferred from your hands.
*TIP:  Work with the locket open.  Every once in a while, check the hinges to ensure they remain clay-free.

Instructions

Step 1. Make a clay ball.















Step 8. Add other embellishments (like the 2D cupcake from the previous tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=291611.0).

Step 9. Bake according to clay manufacturer's instructions. Read more.

Step 10. Repeat all steps for the reverse side if you wish.

TIP: Over time, the clay will get detached from the locket. So if you want your polymer clay lockets to last, follow these extra instructions:

After baking

Step 1. Peel off the clay from the locket.

Step 2. Apply a thin layer of E6000 glue to the clay.

Step 3. Attach the clay back onto the locket.

Step 4. Let glue dry for 24 hours or more.

And you're done!

Thank you for this. I just got some blank lockets and I was wondering what to do with them.

this is a super cute idea! I love it. You could personalize it to keep a lock of pets hair in to remember them after they passed, or a bit of ashes or even something fun like your favroite feather or memento. Great concept!
