Sabertooth Tiger Beads – Halloween Costume Jewelry

Sabertooth Tiger Beads - Polymer Clay TutorVideo #703: Polymer clay is the perfect art medium for adding authenticity to any costume… Cosplay enthusiasts take note!

It’s coming up to Halloween, so I thought it would be a fun to show you how to make some Sabertooth Tiger Beads for making Caveman Jewelry.

Last year my daughter and her boyfriend made themselves Caveman and Cavewoman Costumes. When I saw their outfits I just had to make them some Sabertooth necklaces to add to the look.

Since it was a very last minute project, last year, I didn’t have time to show this at the time. Instead I saved up and am showing you now. They are very easy to make!

You need some Premo Ecru, Premo Regular Translucent, and a 50/50 mix of Premo Ecru and Premo White polymer clay. You’ll also need some brown and black acrylic paint, and some acrylic glazing medium. I used Golden Paints and Glazing Medium, but any acrylic craft paint will do.

In the video I show how to layer, form, bake, drill and antique your Sabertooth Tiger teeth, and also provide some ideas for stringing. A great source for necklace design inspiration, can be found by Googling ‘whale teeth necklace’ – this search will bring up lots of examples of ancient Fijian Tooth Necklaces, perfect for a caveman costume.

I hope you enjoy this mini tutorial. Polymer clay can be used for all kinds of Halloween and Cosplay Costumes. I would love to hear how you have used Polymer clay in your costume designs.

    This is soooo cool!! I’m going to love making these! I have made Halloween jewelry out of polymer clay. And doggie costomers, too! My two dogs were a Patrol Officer (Chihauhau) and a Princess Prisoner (my Maltese)! I made a pistol, badge, gold buttons for his blue uniform and a gold buckle for the belt. He was too cute! Oh! And of course handcuffs!! I couldn’t find any small enough so what do you do? You make them out of polymer clay!! Need I say, they took First Place in the Allen Park Scarecrow Festival!!

    Cindy, love the sabor tooth video. It is going to go well with the wine bottles I made with the dragons, bats etc. I am going to make a wine charm with the teeth to hang around the neck of the bottles. Won’t that look adorable!

    My daughter has been working on my grandson’s Halloween costume. He is going as Star Lord from Guardians of the Galexy. My grandson is seven but very tall, so she took an adult, long sleeve t-shirt and converted it into the overcoat. She used polymer clay to imitate the buttons, belt bucket and orb that Star Lord carries. Polymer Clay really is like the ultimate artist/crafer’s medium. Also, when my students wrote and produced a play that included Native Americans, I made their jewelry in much the same way you are showing it here, Cindy. Neat stuff!
