DIY Marbled Clay Keychain

Today starts a three part mini series!  I love using one product for multiple projects in a row and being able to share all the different ways you can use it.  I’ve done it for felt, cork, air dry clay and now is my second series of polymer clay.  So, starting today and the following two Monday’s I will be sharing various clay keychains!  Today I am kicking it off with a DIY Marbled Clay Keychain!

Start this DIY by removing a small portion of each color of clay.

Roll the colors all together in a long narrow log shape.  The more you roll, the more marbled your clay will become.  So, make sure to roll but not too heavily.

Once all the clay is sufficiently rolled, start to coil into your fun keychain shape.  Once the shape is finalized, be sure to use your clay tool or a toothpick to create a hole for your gold jump ring.

DIY Marbled Keychain Steps
Bake your clay per the directions on your specific clay.  Mine required baking at 230 F for 30 minutes.  Then, remove from the oven and allow to cool.

Next, all that is left is securing your jump ring and lobster keychain onto the clay!

I love how this turned out, but I am slightly upset with the colors.  Clay sometimes changes color after baking in the oven and this turned out a bit more tangerine colored than I had intended.

I wanted more soft peach, but overall I really love the marbling and playful coil shape.

    The key chain is amazing, you never fail to amaze me with your many talents. I will have to look into polymer clay. I try hard to make jewellery but I have to do everything by feel as my sight is so very limited (registered blind). Is polymer clay like Femo or is that entirely different?

      First off, you are amazing! Secondly, yes FIMO clay is polymer clay. FIMO is one of the brands that most people use, but there are other types, too.
