Playing around with Clay

Last week I pulled out some of our new clay and started experiment with it. I wanted to use it differently than just making buttons and flowers using the molds.

I simply took a piece and flattened it between 2 clear BigShot plates (not in the machine!), gently peeled it off and then stamped on it. I rolled the edges up some prior to letting the piece dry.


I sponged the edges after it was completely dry and OK to handle. I adhered it with liquid glue to the card.

The wood grain background came from the Natural Composition Specialty Designer, which I sponged with Chocolate Chip ink…

Next time I might use the silicone sheet on the bottom to make it easier to move the clay after stamping.

Here is a close up:

  1. Thx for sharing the stamped clay project! Anxious to play with this... I used to love to make stuff with Sculpey clay, but baking stuff left funny smell in the oven, so love to see the air dry stuff!
