Polymer Clay Chain-if there's a will there is a way...


About this design:

Well beating the chain freakkkkkk we all know I am well I found this tutorial (Thank You Lynda!!!!) on how to make chain from polymer clay :) This is my first attempt and it needs to be much longer. I can add more links...but this clay I had a ton of and I just wanted to see if I could do it so I'll be making more in metallics and black (smaller links if I can) and much much longer lol...

Components:

Polymer Clay, Metal Pendant

    This is just incredible! How sturdy is the chain? Will it break if you put a bag over it on accident or anything?

    There’s no stopping you with the chain now! This is way cool, the length is pretty good for the size of the links. Looks like a big chunky necklace. I gotta know where that tutorial is! (please!)

    how cool! polymer clay chain! endless possibilities… what about chain made out of a faux stone pmc blend? a ‘malachite’ chain would be to die for…

  20. Sonja
    Sonja says:

    I have no idea what your talking about but if you can make that please do and show me would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see that!!!!! Thank you!

    Eeka Mouse says:

    I haven’t made faux stone mixes (yet) but there are lots of instructions in books on polymer clay, or you could google it, you’ll probably find LOTS of methods on line.

    more on faux stone: I just saw your Zebra set – you could adapt your zebra technique using the colors of malachite, and it would be smashing…. don’t worry to much about finding & buying tutorials; afterall, the authors made it up… you can be observing & inventive,too!
