Before beginning this project, please watch our video How to Use Crystal Clay. You will also need a soft paint brush to use with the mica powder.
  1. Following what you learned in the video, mix equal parts of A and B. You will need your combined piece to be about the size of a small walnut.
  2. Once you have formed the ball you will need to pinch off a small pea size ball. Roll it in your hands until it is smoothed out. Place it on to one of the flat pads on the bracelet. Press down slightly to give it a coin shape. Smooth any finger prints by gently rubbing the top. Repeat this step for the rest of the 10 flat pads.
  3. Place four Austrian crystal chatons on to each piece of crystal clay as seen in the photo. Do this for all 11 pads.
  4. The next step is to apply the mica powder. This video will help explain how to apply the mica powder. Using your soft paint brush, dust the top and sides of each piece of crystal clay. Do not worry about any excess powder on the chatons, you can brush that off once the crystal clay has hardened.
  5. Let dry overnight.
