Creative Paperclay® Tips with Fondant Molds

I have a collection of well used fondant molds (find in the cake decorating department of a craft store) that I use in my art. I find that if I let the Creative Paperclay® completely dry while still in the mold I have no warping to deal with. This is great for adding dimensional elements to your art.

 I pack the Creative Paperclay® in the mold, removing the excess and brayering flat. I try and clean up the edges in order to save me work later.
I leave the clay in the mold until completely dry.
When dry, you can just pop them out and start painting or gold leafing. There is a wide selection of these molds available.

Have a fun dressing up your art.
