How to Make

  1. Take a small section of air dry clay and roll it flat until it is about 1cm thick. Then cut it into an oval shape.
  2. Push your finger into the centre of the clay to form your fingerprint. Then use a skewer to push a hole into the top of the piece of clay. Leave overnight to dry.
  3. Cover the clay in pink paint or a colour of your choice, leaving the fingerprint unpainted to make it stand out.
  4. Glue some small acrylic gems around the edge of the clay.
  5. Turn the piece of clay over and write your name and the date onto the back using a black pen.
  6. Thread a thin piece of ribbon through the hole and tie the ends together to create your necklace.

Top Tip

Wait until the clay has completely dried before painting it.
