A Fun Tropical Trio by Jenn

Hello everyone!! Jenn here sharing a fun trio of tropical fun projects created using both Delight™ air dry modeling compound and the original Creative Paperclay®!!
This set includes a vase made from an altered bottle, A trinket dish and an incense burner!
These were created using a variety of silicone molds and some real live leaves from my own yard!
All of the flowers and ferns were molded using Delight™ air dry modeling compund.

The larger leaves were created using real live leaves, a rolling pin, and the original Creative Paperclay®.
Here are some closer views.

To create the leaves above roll out some Creative Paperclay® on to a non stick surface. Lay your leaf flat and roll over it with a rolling pin or brayer. Gently pull the leaf away and drape the piece over something rounded to dry so it dries with a shape like a dish. Dry the longer leaf flat. Add molded flowers and paint!

Two of the long flat leaves were created using the Delight™ and wrapped around the bottle to dry. Once dry, add glue to secure them to the glass. Add molded flowers and coat all with heavy gesso. After gesso dries add paint!

Here is a photo of the set in use as a trinket dish, vase, and incense burner.

Creative Paperclay® is moldable and sculptable!

Delight™ air dry modeling compound is lightweight when dry so it is great for creating projects such as these. 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!
Creative Paperclay® and Delight™ are conveniently available for you to purchase online and at the below listed retailers.

Until Next time Stay Creative!
