For the twenty eighth day of 366 creative days I have posted a fake jade attempt of a pendant made of noodles and beads, along with a some other tests. Gives a bit of Maya jewelry impression.

3 - Mix 3 with a bit of sand for making the base for the pendant, then flatten it at a 2 mm thickness
4 - Make the bead and pendant shapes and stamp them with various designs
5 - Leftover jade extrude with a polymer clay extruder, same for 7 and 8, will fasten the process.
6 - Thin a bit more the "noodles" using your finger
7 - Brush the base using a brush with liquid Kato polymer clay, and start arranging the polymer clay jade noodles using your imagination.
8 - Bake as described on package (110 C) on a piece of baking paper

I'm trying to find the pendant for some time, somehow, it got lost when I changed flats along with another necklace.
I really loved the pendant, after baking, the polymer clay become slightly transparent and give a very interesting touch along with non transparent colored clay.
