I have recently started working with clay products - and to say I am hooked is an understatement! Also being in temporary quarters for just a bit longer - makes it so I can't do a lot of the fun things I have planned for you until we actually are in our own place!!!
This project is a vertical paper bag album, with this for the cover! I used Creative Paperclay product and a mold I have to create the flower! This is actually one of my favorite flowers now, along with a daisy I painted and embossed... For the flower, I painted it with two different colors I had of Radiant Pearls paint and then let dry! This is the paint I happen to have...use what you have! I am still experimenting with what can be done with this awesome stuff!
Here are some things I will recommend for you to work with this clay:
- Make sure your hands and surface is clean - using gloves if you have them. Since I do not, I make sure I have a dry towel (or paper towel) and wash cloth available to wash my hands and surface often.
- After you open your package up - make sure you have a big enough Ziploc style bag to put the rest in. This way it is nice for you to have your clay in one place and not exposed to dry out.
- Look for something to put all the stuff you are working with in one place. This way you can take it someplace if you have to wait for a long period of time. A clear shoe box is perfect for this reason!
- Look through this blog's previous posts - to see the different things you can do with this clay if you are just starting out! Take the time like I did and learn all the fun things you are able to do with this fun stuff!!!
Thank you for checking out my project and a few tips today! You can check out the entire project at Memories in Tyme blog, just scroll down on the right side - looking for the Vertical Paper Bag Album links! This was one of my funnest albums done so far! I really like how the flower looks on top of the bow - which made me think of a few other fun ideas I can do using this clay and mold!!! I hope you are enjoying it as much as I am!!!
