Day 20: Clay Pendants

On day 20, I was supposed to make or buy clay to use in my project.  I decided to make clay using a recipe found on pinterest (2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, cold water, bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours).

My intention was to make a thumb print pendant, but the homemade clay was a little sticky and wouldn't show a thumbprint.  Instead, I just made big beads and hearts.  I stuck them in the oven.  They still have another 15 minutes to bake and when they're done I have to paint the ones I choose to keep.

I also had a plan to use these pendants in camp this year during boot camp week to make dog tags for all the kids, but I tried writing on one and it wasn't that easy to write on.  We'll have to see about that...

I'll post an update when I'm done with them!!
