Here is the video, so you can see exactly how I made it:
1. I pulled out my mold for yet another doily coaster.
2. I pulled off a chunk of air dry clay and started to flatten it.
3. I used my brayer/roller to more evenly flatten it and get it large enough accommodate the mold.
4. I placed the silicone mold, pattern side down, onto the clay.
5. I used my brayer to make sure I had and even impression.
6. I used my craft knife to trim off the excess.
7. I dipped my finger into some water and used it to smooth the edge, while the silicone mold was still on the clay.
8. I carefully removed the mold.
9. I smoothed any rough edges and then I let it dry. Once the one side was dry, I flipped it over and peeled the foil off the back of the clay. DO NOT PEEL THE CLAY OFF OF THE FOIL! You risk breaking your piece. I laid it back side up and let it dry the rest of the way.
10. I painted the dry piece with a metallic green.
11. Once dry, I used a brush with just a little bit of silver paint. I gently brushed it over the raised areas. It helps to hold your brush sideways.
It helps set off the raised area.
Once dry, I used a varnish to seal everything. I did multiple coats. Then I let it dry.
Here is the finished piece. The silver really blended with the green, when I put the varnish on it. I would suggest doing two coats of the silver before adding the varnish.
That’s it! Thanks for stopping by! Remember: Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™ Stay safe!
