A warm greeting from the beautiful island of Penang, Malaysia!!! Today, I have a Clay Piggy Charm tutorial to share with you. This cute little clay piggy charm is made from extra lightweight air-dry clay. Due to its lightweight and the perfect size (1″), it is suitable to make into a key-ring charm. Air-dry-able is great because you can do it yourself without having to invest in heating equipment to cure the clay which usually happens to some clay products. Playing with clay is easy, you can simply remold it or reshape it if you are not completely satisfied with the outcome. This clay piggy charm was inspired by the piggy bun amigurumi pattern I’ve shared 2 years ago. If you like piggy items, beside Clay Piggy Charm and Piggy Bun Amigurumi, you may like to look on Princess Piggy Amigurumi and Piggy Pillow Sewing Pattern.
If you prefer a bigger charm, you can always make it into other sizes. This clay piggy charm requires extra-light-weight air-dry clay in white, yellow and pink, and 2 nos. of 5mm black beads. You will also need to prepare some simple tools that you will find in your house: a toothpick and a pen cover. Optional items you might need are a key-chain ring and the accessories if you want to make it into the key-ring charm and tacky glue (sometimes white craft glue works too but it has to be the thick type).
As you might know that recently I have just started up an online shop (Craft Passion Shop), life was a bit crazy over the past 2 months with all the setup. After all the dust has settled, I am glad that I have more time sitting in front of my MacBook writing up tutorials from the back-log crafts I have created a while ago. I am pleased that I am back to my routine sharing of free craft tutorials, I hope nothing will stop me or slowing me down from posting my passion here. The shop is part of the service I wanted to provide to my loyal readers and passionate crafters, it is a rather a product support and a channel for you to find the hard to find materials I will occasionally use in my free tutorial. That’s the main reason for setting up of Craft Passion Shop.
Happy crafting and creating!!! I hope you enjoy playing with clay as much as I do.
