Polymer Clay Pendants - playing with dots

My week of sharing my polymer clay pendants continues with two more designs I made where I played with painting little dots. Check them out:

My mom really said she loves the pink and red and gold chevron dot one and my pal Jim thinks the light blue and teal one is his favourite and looks a lot like an egg (which in hindsight I totally agree with even if that wasn't my original plan)! The dots were super difficult to paint on at first but after lots of practice it was super fun! I used lots of different sized toothpicks and dowels and scoring tools to make the dots and by the end I felt I mastered it. 

In other (very much related) news, Wild Olive did a polymer clay raindrop pendant on her blog a few days ago (link)  that shows the same steps I used (more or less) to make mine! Great crafty minds think alike! 


  1. The light blue and teal is my favorite! I don't know if I would have the patience to make all of those tiny dots. It looks very difficult. These pendants look like a lot of fun to make. :)

    1. Thanks Marci! I always wonder how people do loads of detail painting work so well - it is certainly harder than it looks!

  2. Wow, perfect. Fortunately, I found your website!

  3. This post is worthy of appreciation, looking forward to more exciting!

  4. Hi Kate, I love your work. I am trying to find non toxic polymer. Do you know of any or less toxic ?
