Hi, it's Ann here today from Annmakes and the CP Design Team with a quick and fun tip for you. Did you know that you can use colouring pencils to colour the dry Creative Paperclay®? Well, yes you can. Isn't that just wonderful? I think it is.
So, I have been playing with my pencils and some embellishments I made a while back. I like to make embellishments and pieces to use in my mixed media in quantity so I am ready to go when I want to make a larger piece of Mixed Media, especially a canvas. I went and coloured a dolphin, starfish and a fish. I found that by using wooden coloured pencils on the dry clay (CP) pieces smoothed out any of the rough texture of the clay. It reminded me of soap stone when I was done colouring. I also noticed a pearl like finish once I was done colouring, and I found that to be very cool!
Furthermore, after rolling out a piece of Creative Paperclay® and letting it air dry, I used some Archival ink and a stamp on the clay . It stamped just like on paper. I then used my coloured pencils to colour in the image and it worked beautifully.
That's my tip for today, I hope that I have inspired you to look at your own art supplies in a new way and encourage you to give it a try. Thank you for stopping by.
