Step 1. After making your castings, lay out your clay shapes on a baking sheet. Overlap the center skirt piece as shown. You can use Liquid Sculpey to connect the pieces better if needed.
Step 2. Place a slightly flattened ball of clay in the center to support the body piece, and to connect all the pieces together. Gently press down so the pieces become secure after baking.
Step 3. Now attach the body piece to the center front of the angel. Bake this part of your angel before contenting to the next steps.
Step 4. Now is the time to add any embellishments you wish before baking. Be sure not to add anything that will burn or melt under high heat. We added pearls & stones.
Step 5. Bake. Now that this is baked, you will be able to turn over the angel to view the back-side. Make a wire loop and press between the back and a flattened sheet of clay & press firmly.
Step 6. Gently place the 4 skirt pieces under the bottom to finish the skirt. Be sure to press firm so the connections bake together secure. You may need to glue some of your pieces if they are not secure after baking. After baking you can paint the angel as you wish. Ours is painted with a pearl while and sprayed with a clear coat of sealer. You can make variations of this angels by using different molds offered on our site. Such as the wings and skirt shapes can be found on our “Wing” category and the head shapes can be found on the cabochon settings pages.

Step 2. This pin, was made with colored clay and sealed with pearl paint after baking. You can also use white clay and paint it as well. It’s your personal choice of which way you prefer to color it.
Step 3. Now attach a bar pin on the back. Note - We have special directions on how to do this on our instructions page, if you wish to use them. They can be found on our craft tools page.
Step 4. You can make variations of this angels by using different molds offered on our site. Such as the flower or heart molds. And of course you can add the words… Sister, Friend, Aunt or a name instead of Mom. We added ours with a gold gel pen.
Molds needed to make Mom Pin.
Step 1. Make as many hearts as you need to make your ornament. If you need more then three hearts you can hang more then one from a ribbon by continuing the ribbon down to connect another heart.
Step 2. After making your castings, bake and paint, or embellish anyway you wish. It’s easier to do this before you add the ribbon.
Step 3. Now turn all your pieces over so the backs are right side up. Lay the pieces out in the order you wish them to hang. Cut your ribbons to the length needed and glue to the back. We used E6000 and it worked very nicely.
