Mixed Media Magic with Delight™

Happy Holidays!! Jenn here today, sharing a wintery tag using embellies molded from Delight™ air dry modeling compound. Delight™ is made by the Amazing Creative PaperClay®!
I love the soft hues associated with Winter and I really wanted to do a collage using some of the many pieces I have molded with Delight™.
Supply List:
Chipboard tag 4" X 7.5"
Heavy White Gesso
Delight™ air dry modeling compound
Iron Orchid Molds
Renea Bouquet Flowers
Tim Holtz Chippie sentiments
Art Anthology Inks
Art Stones
Sparks Acrylics
White Crackle texture paste
Stamps and inks

Prep all of the supplies including molded pieces. Be sure to allow the molded pieces to dry overnight before adding them and creating the tag.

To create this tag start by coating it in heavy white gesso and allowing it to air dry.
Next add a white crackle texture paste through a stencil. Let the paste dry completely to achieve the most crackling effect.The one used here is bricks by Tim Holtz.

Next add your first molded embellishment. This is a column. On this tag I have created leaves, flowers, clock, and the column all from Delight™ air dry modeling compound using silicone molds.

Next add color using a spray ink or watered down acrylic. Here I started with a purple ink. More color can be added once this one dries or is dried with a heat tool.

Add some scrolled lettering stamping lightly. Continue to build and add embellishments and flowers until you have the desired result.

Delight™ air dry modeling compound is lightweight when dry so it is great for creating projects such as tags and cards. It takes very well to inks and sprays when dried and gessoed as well.
Thanks so much for viewing my post today! I hope that you are inspired to give this amazing clay a try and create something amazing!

Happy Holidays!!
