Adding Rope Letters to Your Art

This quick and easy trick allows you to create letters of any size or numbers in your art with Creative Paperclay®. It adds dimension plus adds to your visual story.

Creative Paperclay®
Alphabet stamps, texture plates
Paint or gold rub

Roll the clay into ropes and make them into letters directly on your art. Sometimes I dampen my surface slightly for better adhesion. If you want to keep the rope look I would let them dry then glue onto your surface.
Press a texture plate into the clay. I used a texture plate with handwriting on it.
Now I let the clay dry before adding color.
I finished it off with a gold rub and embellishments.

Hope you enjoyed learning rope letters. You can't add enough ticks to your art arsenal.
