The Coffee Break Ring


The Coffee Break Ring
Designed by Carmi Cimicata for
www.cre8time.org

Featuring our Jewelry Clay

This is the ring idea I will be demonstrating at the Craft and Hobby Show.
This ring could be made on your coffee break! 
It only takes a few minutes to make if you have all your supplies ready.
Mix a small portion of Envirotex Jewelry Clay, which is also known as “resin clay.”  This clay cures solid and waterproof in 24 hours.  No kiln or oven required.
Jewelry Clay has excellent adhesive qualities so you can place your items at various angles and be confident that they will cure in place.

Using your pick-up tool you can embed crystals around the base of your ring.  Press your items into the clay gently.


Finally, the clay can be coloured by simply brushing a Pearl-ex powder of your choice onto its surface.

Supplies Needed
Resin Clay
ring blank
miniature cup, cupcake or donut
Pearl-ex powder
pointed back crystals - Preciosa
pick-up tool

    Cute Cute Cute!!!

    (I typically apply Embellie Gellie to the blunt end of the wand for paper crafts and cake decorating so that I can use the pointy end for adjusting the embellishment, if necessary. I can see it might work better this way for Envirotex if you need the blunt end for pushing items into the clay. It's great to see one product so handy for so many different crafts!

    Can it be painted with acrylic paints, or is it only the powdered pigments?

    Carmi said...

    You can definitely paint it with acrylics and over the next few weeks I am sure I will show you an example or two.
