Vintage Style Clay Purse

>> Thursday, July 22, 2010


I was just playing around the other day and came up these cute vintage style clay purses!  I used a ball of polymer clay, pearl x shimmer powder and two 3 way floral necklace connectors and some paint for "antiquing".  You basically just shape the clay into an oval then take the connectors and smoosh then into the top 1/4 of your oval. You can flatten the bottom of the purse by gently sitting it down on a flat surface and lightly puch it down to flatten. Then rub it with pearl x and bake as directed.  Once it cools paint the metal and rub off excess with a paper towel to give it an antique look.  I think it turned out pretty sweet...
