Carving this pendant while still warm was like cutting through butter. After carving, I poured white Kato Liquid Polyclay over the entire piece. I took a paper towel and wiped the excess liquid clay off the bottom area while leaving the upper area alone. After baking, I took a couple of photos and am pleased with it. I really like working with the Kato Liquid Polyclay. While at Clay Carnival, I purchased two bottles of white, clear, purple, blue, orange and yellow, so I better get busy.
