Dry into Wet with Creative Paperclay®

On this piece I am going to add previously made Creative Paperclay® heart that is totally dry into wet clay.

I start by marking in white the size of the heart.


Creative Paperclay®
Acrylic paint
Holographic foil

After dampening the surface, I apply the clay and brayer it flat before trimming with an exacto knife.
When trimmed and the edges smoothed with some water on my fingers, I stamped the piece.

I wet the backside of the dry heart shape and press it into the wet clay. They adhere to each other beautifully. Next I painted it with red oxide acrylic paint and did a gold rub on top.

After painting it, I decided to apply some holographic foil to it. Now on to painting the rest of the art.

Dream in Color!
