Silver Leaf Polymer Clay Pendant Tutorial

By on Thursday, May 01, 2014 4 Comments

It would be expensive to use a thick sterling silver metal sheet to make something like  these stamped pendants. Not to mention having to first saw and file the pieces. The solution is easy - go faux silver with the use of silver leaf!




The polymer clay tutorial is by Tamara over on Etcetorize.  Tamara says the silver leaf will adhere to the clay after it is baked. The foolproof method is to also add some sort of sealant afterwards.

Gold leaf will work too.  I would also try this with epoxy resin clay - the no bake method.  The adhesive of this clay will make the leaf stick for sure!

  2. That's a great idea. I have some wooden beads that would look terrific in silver or gold. Hey I just remembered, I even have an old wooden donut and a sheet or two of faux gold leaf in my arts supplies. Oh dear, I feel another project coming on. :D
