I made these as part of my boyfriend's Christmas gift this year. They're supposed to be little love token / voucher thingies that he can "cash in" in exchange for whatever they say on them. I made them out of polymer clay (Sculpey), poked a hole in them with a bamboo skewer, baked them, painted them with acrylics (after realizing the ink wouldn't stay on just the clay itself), stamped on the writing using individual letter stamps and black ink, sealed them with clear nail polish, and put one of those metal chains in each one.

Oh, and I wouldn't normally charge him for kisses or a back massage. Though that could turn quite a large profit...

Cute! As he cashes them in, you should add them to a bracelet for yourself!

Great idea, and I'm sure they'll be well received!  Grin

Actually, some kinds of paint do very well on polymer clay, baked and raw.... some don't though.

You can read about the various inks that will work (as well as other ways to make lettering on polymer clay) on this page if you're interested:

(and be sure, if you're using baked clay, to wipe the surface free of any grease with a bit of alcohol first).

Cuuuuute!!!  Why'd I never think of writing on clay?  I'll have to give it a shot.  Great stuff!

Those are great.  Where'd you get the chains?

I've been looking for a place to get ball chain on the cheap, both in the little sizes, as well as, say, 16-18"...

I actually had all of them on hand, after collecting them from various keychains and stuff.
