December Blog Hop
Good morning everyone. I m so excited to be in my first blog hop I love trying to find new ways to use my stamps and this just happens to be one of them. Christmas ornaments out of air dry clay. I mentioned to some of you that I would be showing how I make these so lets get started. :D
I am a big fan of making our own Christmas ornaments, it brings such good memories to Christmas for me. Something handmade is always better then store bought I always believe. I love to use polymer clay but for this I just wanted to try something new.
This is the Clay I used. I took my stamp that I wanted to use and pushed it into the clay, then cut around it being careful not to touch the design to much. I pierced a hole at the top for the string to draw through.
I allowed the clay to sit for 2 days, it says 24 hours but I felt the longer the better.
I took distress ink and a water brush and brushed on ground espresso all over it to give it a vintage wash look. I wiped off the high points of the image so that the ink was only in the groves. Then painted red over the banner and scallops to make it pop.
Here it is on my tree. I just love how it turned out don't you!
I hope you enjoyed this little technique and give it a try for yourself.
