DIY Gilded Clay Bangle Bracelets
Today, I'm going to share how to make marbled and gold flecked bangle bracelets out of oven bake clay. What you will need is:
Two different colors of oven bake clay
A sheet of paper
Scissors and/or other tools to help you sculpt your bracelets
First, take your clay and knead the colors together until you are satisfied with the marbling effect. I even took one of the gold leaf sheets, crumpled it up and sprinkled the gold flecks in while kneading the clay. Then divide the clay in 2-3 even portions. Each portion will become a bracelet.
Take your glass and wrap it with paper. Use it as a form for sculpting your bracelets. Sculpt and shape to your heart's desire! When you are finished, slip the paper (and bracelets) off the glass. Take the paper carefully out of the bracelets.
Now your bracelets are ready to bake! Bake the clay according to the instructions on the package. When the bracelets have cooled completely apply gold foil according to the gold foil instructions. I chose simple geometric shapes and bands. When the gold foiling is finished your bracelets are ready to wear! Enjoy!
