Dawnmercedes' October Tip!

Here's a tip for you from me...

All about SANDING!!!

Your project is done...but you might want to check out the surface of your piece.  Do you want a smooth looking finish?

One idea is to try to smooth your Creative Paperclay ® design before it starts to dry.
Use you fingers to mold and model that product!

Another idea...smooth it out as it is in process of drying and still a bit pliable.
I would recommend using a damp paper towel.  The water will smooth bumps and hills out, so wipe carefully!  Too much water, and your piece will be too wet and may lose its shape.

After your design is dry, use fine sand paper to sand your piece get your desired smooth finish.

Thanks for visiting us this week!
