How To Make Some Amazing Embellishments With Impressive Putty and Creative Paperclay Delight®

Hello, Friends and fans of Creative Paperclay®!! My name is Jenn and today I want to show you how you can combine this two wonderful and versatile products. I will be showing you how to make some amazing embellishments with Impressive Putty and Creative Paperclay Delight®!!
In the picture above you can see that I used the Impressive Putty and a wooden cutout to create a mold. You may ask. "why didn't she just use the wooden piece?" The answer is simple, I wanted something thinner and lighter. By creating a mold I was able to then use the mold and Delight® to make a much lighter, flexible and cuttable embellishment!
Now I can cut this into exactly what I want and use it on my project. This stuff is true to its name, Impressive for sure! I love it and I am sure you will too!


 Clay Products Used:

Others Products Needed:
Black gesso
acrylics


The next embellishment is a frame. I am a thrift store lover and recently found these beautiful vintage Victorian frames. Again, they are bulky and heavy and I really wanted a lighter more flexible frame for my project. In the next few pictures, you can see the process of creating the mold with Impressive Putty and then molding it using Delight®.
Push the putty with a medium pressure to ensure that it is evenly distributed. Trim outer and inner excess putty. Place the molded piece into your freezer for 15-20 minutes. You can leave it in longer if it does not feel like it will pull easily from metal.

One of the greatest things I have found using Impressive Putty is its ability to pick up such great details as shown here.
Just look at all the amazing, intricate details it picks up!

Roll out some Delight® air dry modeling compound and work it into a flat strip. Next, press it into the mold and allow it to sit for a few minutes.
Pull the modeling compound gently from the mold. Next, trim unwanted edges with small sharp scissors and allow your frame to dry. There are all those wonderful details again!


 Once your frame is dry apply a coat of black gesso to front and back. Let this dry.


Now you can use an array of gold tone acrylics and paints to decorate your frame and bring it to life!
