Hello everyone! Jenn here today sharing my Fun Fairy House project I created using the amazing Creative Paperclay®!
This project has actually been a vision for awhile so I decided to just sit down and do it!
To create my house I used the following clay:
Molds both silicone and plastic
Acrylic paints and Spray inks
Small Mason Jar with lid
Spray clear sealant
How It Was Made
Start with a clean, dry mason jar and lid. Roll a piece of paperclay out to about 1/8" thickness. Wrap woodgrain stamp around a rolling pin and roll across the flattened clay. Wrap this around the jar and pinch closed. Smooth out the seam closure with fingers and add woodgrain stamp as needed to match up. Set this aside and allow to dry completely.
Next, mold all pieces needed such as the door, mushrooms, window and all of the leaves for the roof.
Create a base for the lid by molding some Delight™ around the rim and up into the shape of the roof. This will create a nice surface to adhere the leaf roof too. You can use straight pins to hold down leaves that want to be difficult.
Create the lid by gently stacking the molded leaves while they are wet, shaping them as you go. Once they are nearly dry, use a hot glue gun to adhere them in the same places they were dryed in. This ensures that they all fit. Add a fun twisted piece of scrap clay to the top and set aside for drying.
Next I painted all of my other pieces and allowed them to dry. Once dry they were adhered using glue.
When completed the lid will still unscrew and the jar can be used for trinkets, etc.!
Here are some closer views of all the fun detail achieved on this project!
