Whilst in England I was very excited to receive these three Japanese craft kits in the mail. They are all from Kutsuwa, and the idea behind them is that you use fuwa-fuwa clay to create decorations and jewellery. I opened the first kit today and made it in about 4 hours. It was so much fun!
This is what came inside the box: 4 colours of clay, some moulds, ring backs and necklace chains, jewellery hooks, glue, and sparkles. Also an instruction sheet in Japanese, which my husband helped me to read. All you really need to know: after making them let them dry for two days, and when inserting the hooks, put glue on the hook first.
After the charms were made I added the hooks and the sparkles. There's a few without hooks: those ones will become rings. In total the kit made 18 mini ice creams/ cakes, which is more than it shows on the box, and pretty much enough to make everything twice.
Now I have to wait two days before transforming them into jewellery: I'll post pictures of the finished necklaces and rings! The next Kutsuwa Clay Kit I make will be the Donut Accessories kit. It really is a great way to spend a rainy afternoon!
