Here is my project for the blog hop…
And here is how I made it:
You will need:
- Creative Paperclay (R) – available in NZ at ZigZag.co.nz
- Amaizing Mold Putty
- Bead shaped similar to a berry shape
- Leaves from a plant
- Ink pads (light brown and dark brown)
- fave background stamp (I used the basket weave by Sandra Strait)
- Acrylic paints (Red and green)
- Black marker pen
- small chain
- scissors and nail file
step 1: take the Mold Putty and with equal amounts of part A and Part B mix them together, then put the Leaves and beads into the Mold Putty.
follow package instructions.
Step 2: Take out your leaves and beads when Mold Putty is cured (see package instructions)
look at the amazing detail that you can get from natural leaves!
step 3: take some clay and make it onto a block for the background. Set aside to air dry.
step 4: take some more clay and put it into the mold you just made.
I often take out the clay carefully when it is wet but you can leave it to dry in the mold if you wish… it will just take longer to air dry. Set aside the wet clay to air dry for a few days.
step 5: Once the pieces are dry, cut and file the edges to your desired edge design. I like the edges smooth others like it rough.
Step 6: Paint up the pieces – and put in detailing with the black marker pen.
step 7: once the background rectangle is dry ink the background directing applying the lighter brown ink pad to the piece all over… then Stamp the background image with darker brown ink pad.
Then finally stick all your pieces onto your base and you are done!
