Flexible Jewelry with Premo by TheAnna Flexible Jewelry with Premo by TheAnna
If you would like to share this on tumblr please ask me first, thank you.

New tutorial! I've been wanting to do this for a while but kept putting it off. I chose to do Colette's thingers for this because I'm replaying that game right now and I find them aesthetically pleasing. I basically used the same technique on theanna.deviantart.com/art/Ete… .

Additional tips!~
1. Proper X-Acto handling skills are very important to the appearance of your final product. If you're not experienced with craft knives practice cutting pictures and letters out of magazines without cutting the page below. It can be done!
2. This is easier if you do everything on parchment paper, they were out when I went to the store so I had to make do.
3. Translucent Premo isn't as flexible as normal Premo. Personally I would stick to using just white and painting it.

Oh yeah, fun story from while I was doing this. The electricity went out after I finished the steps on the left side. So there I am, it's 2AM, pitch black apartment, unbaked clay on the coffee table in a room with 2 hyper cats. That is how the Universe tells you to go to bed and stop working on cosplay crap.

I'll think of more stuff to say later. Don't be afraid to ask me questions!

This is great! I love the translucent premo clay, I used it to make my brother's Grell Sutcliff teeth.

Do you think I could also do this with Fimo polymer clay? I've got quite some leftovers from an experiment and I'd love to try this out X_X

So, if you bake the clay and let it cool, it will be flexible?

Modern Masters metallic collection in ME701 Rich Gold. I got it from the paint store my Mom works at but they have a physical location locator on their site www.modernmasters.com/wtb.asp?… .

Maybe my english is bad.. but in the end it's isn't flexible any more, right? Just in the "still beeing hot"-phase, right?

TheAnna Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's still flexible after cooling. The Heat setting phase is mainly to ensure that it will take the shape that you want it to be in when you put it on. Does that make sense?

[link] When you say premo, is this the kind of clay you're talking about?

Yes, I would recommend buying white though.

This... I love you for making this. I'm helping a friend of mine with a Colette cosplay and have been completely STUCK on how to make her Cruxis crystal. I've never heard of the stuff you used, but am most definitely going to give it a try.

Happy to help!~ It's in most craft stores. Premo is a Sculpey product so you will typically find it next to the Sculpey.

Your necklace/choker looks so awesome! :D
About how flexible is this Premo stuff? Considering it's going around your neck, it would have to stretch a good bit, no?
Reply
:icontheanna:
TheAnna Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
It's very flexible as you can see in one of the last pictures. I can completely curl the ends on the necklace in and they will just slowly go back to the original shape when I let go. The clay does not stretch. It doesn't have stretch at all to fit my neck, I made it long enough for that.

Thanks for this tutorial. I've always wondered how to make jewelry flexible because I always cook clay and leave it to cool until it's hard.

You're welcome! For the harder clays, like Sculpey III, that's a good idea because they can crack if you try to do this.

Cool tutorial! Premo is really cool stuff I think most people don't know about. I used that for my Princess Garnet crown, and it worked really well - it's still in one piece! xD

TheAnna Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
AH I loved your Crown!

I actually bought it and figured out the whole heat set thing by accident while I was working on something dumb. It's probably my favorite clay now, next to Paperclay. GREAT STUFF.

Nerp I just felt like making this. I love her to pieces but I already have a big long list of costumes I need to do. Top of the list is Belgemine from FF X which is going to take all of the dollars.

All dem dollars gurl.

I hear you there. Both money and the costume list. What cons are you doing this year?

Probably just Anime Fest. I'm out of the job at the moment so I think I'm going to skip A-kon. I'm skeptical as to how they're going to handle the new venue this year anyways. I'd really like to hit San Japan but it's allll the way on the other side of the state and my only modes of transport are mountain bike and scooter.

Gah.

Man, A-fest was my maybe con this year. I don't have a car either so I always have to hitch a ride with friends up to cons.

I WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS TO BE IN MY INBOX <3 (i had to recheck if it was from a Tales group or not lol)

ive actually made a tutorial on her cruxis crystal too, but mine isnt even close to as cool as yours. XD if i ever remake her cruxis crystal, i'll definitely be using this! <3

It'd probably be the most helpful for Presea's key crest. I like Colette more though so I made her's. CHARACTER BIAS '3'
