This project can be done with air dry or polymer clay but, although I have already worked with polymer clay before, in these types of projects I always use air dry, maybe because I'm too lazy to cook the beads in the oven.

You will need:
  • air dry clay
  • acrylic paint
  • small and medium paintbrushes
  • leather cord

holes, let the beads dry completely. If you want to make the exact same necklace you will need to make 4 large beads, 5 medium beads, and 2 small beads.

2. To make the coral paint, mix 2 parts of pink or crimson paint, 1 part of yellow and 1 part of white.

3. A trick to hold the beads while painting is to stick them on a pencil.

Paint medium-sized dots on your larger beads with the light coral paint.

4. Now, use a small paintbrush to paint around the dots.

5. Paint the rest of your beads with the different shades of coral and let the paint dry.

6. Thread the beads onto the cord and tie a knot at the end. And it's done!

Love the finished look of this necklace, you can also change the colors to fit your style, I think it would also look great in turquoise if you want to give it a try.

Do you prefer using air dry clay or polymer clay?
