I thought I'd make an organic art piece, with repetitive shapes,
using Creative Paperclay © as my medium.
Creative Paperclay ©
mat, rolling pin
Matte and Gloss Mod Podge
Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive
1. First, roll out your Creative Paperclay © into a thin slab.
2. Wrap your balloon as pictured.
If you want a larger piece, try using larger balloons.
3. Wrap with plastic wrap and smooth and shape your paperclay to the balloons.
4. Unwrap...set out.
Patiently wait for it to dry.
**Note, my every trusty frisbee!!**
5. When the paperclay is dry, cut the balloons with a pair of scissors.
Then...it's up to you to arrange and decorate them!
I wanted mine to have a contrast of rough and smooth.
This inside of each form was painted with gold acrylic paint...two coats.
The outside was painted in blues and creams.
After the paint had dried, I coated the inside with Gloss Mod Podge...two coats.
Then the outside was coated in Matt Mod Podge...again two coats!
I then stacked my forms in a tripod shape with the 4th, and smallest, on top.
I found that Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive worked best in securing my sculpture.
I found a large glass platter...lined it with Spanish Moss.
I am planning on burning tea lights in side...or getting the battery operated tea lights!
Thanks so much for coming and commenting on my Organic Art piece.
I thought that it would look sea-like. But with the grasses, it's more egg like.
What do you think?
