Father's Day Clay Key Chain Craft Tutorial

I posted the video for this craft prior to Father's Day, but fell behind and didn't get around to the blog post in time.  So, here it is, better late than never!  Also, birthdays and other gift giving holidays come about throughout the year!


You will need:

-  Jewelry Clay - it's a resin clay 
For information on where to buy it, go to their website at www.eti-usa.com
-  Letter stamps
-  Miscellaneous screws, nails, nuts, bolts, whatever
-  Pigment powder
-  Permanent stamping ink

Here is the video tutorial:

Directions:

1.  Take your clay and prep it according to the package directions.
2.  Once properly mixed/blended, roll it into a ball.
3.  Squeeze the ball onto parchment paper, so it won't stick
**By the way, you should always be wearing gloves when working with the clay.
4.  Press the screws and whatnots into the clay, making sure to leave enough room for you to stamp.
5.  Brush the entire thing with pigment powder, front and back.
6.  Ink your stamps and stamp DAD into the clay.
7.  Take a skewer or needle tool and create a hole in the top.
8.  Allow to sit at least 12 hours before handling.

That's it!  Now you can attach a key chain ring, or use it as an ornament, or a bookmark (just attach a ribbon).

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Crafting!
