Tutorial : How to make a Wayfinder part 1/2 by percylove Tutorial : How to make a Wayfinder part 1/2 by percylove
So I decided to make a crappy tutorial on how I made my wayfinders for my upcoming Aqua/Terra cosplay.

I'm sure there are some steps that are not explained or may be confusing. If there are any questions, let me know!

Part 1: you are here!
Part 2: fav.me/d6mwpc0

What an awesome tutorial, I'm so lucky I found this because I wanted to make one for my boyfriend!
So, I have a couple of questions (I looked at the second part of the tutorial as well):
-I can buy the Silver Sculpey, rings, gloss, and other tools at a crafts store, right? (And how many packages of the clay would I need?)
-Where did you find the template?
-What kind paint would you recommend?

Sorry for the bombardment of questions, I just want this to turn out really well because I am not crafty whatsoever and it is for someone special. :3

Anywho, thanks very much for posting this!

hey there! no problems with the questions :) it's better to ask than be confused!

-yup you can buy all those things at a craft store like Michael's or JoAnn Fabrics or ACMoore.
if you're making only one, one package should cover it.

-I just did a Google Image Search for kingdom hearts wayfinders and found: this image. then I sized it to my own hand - I think about 4 inches wide. printed it out, cut it out. (if you want something sturdier than paper, you can trace/cut it out on craft foam or cardstock paper (also can be found at craftstore))

-For paints, I just used simple acrylic paints. No special brands - I just bought the cheapo ones lol

You're welcome very much! Glad I could help you make something special for someone else :D

What exactly is a Wayfinder? Is it just the name of the necklace or is there some sort of mythological background?
