Tip for Glazing Polymer Clay Pendants

As crafters, we often come up with our own clever little ways to "make do" when we need something to help us successfully complete a craft project.  Here's one of mine:


 


When preparing to apply glaze to polymer clay pendants, thread a paper clip through the bail.









Dip the entire pendant into the glaze and brush off excess.  Hang the pendant from it's paperclip from a bamboo skewer that is suspended over a large disposable container.  (Bamboo skewers are readily available in Asian grocery stores and they are very inexpensive. I paid 99 cents for a package of 100.)  Let dry and repeat process as necessary.  Upon removal, if the paperclip sticks to the dried glaze, it can easily be removed by clipping it with wire cutters.


And there you go!  A perfectly glazed pendant - the easy way!
