Techniques for Making Charms

A fun part of having been watching polymer clay on the internet for around ten years now has been finding the little pockets of awesome resources here and there. PolymerClayWeb has been around for a while but it seems there are new goodies every time I look.

The tutorial for the chatty charms is good for a few different reasons: indepth material on how to make the charm as well as lots of hints and tips on adding a faux finish, distressing it, using acrylics. My only note is that I make my charm dangles by embedding the end of a large jump ring directly into the clay, sealing it over half the ring, using a teeny bit of liquid clay to reinforce the hold and baking the whole works together.
