Thanks to Hurricane Irene, we were holed up at home for half the weekend watching constant weather reports. So whats a girl to do with her time than complete a fun project that has been in my head for a while.
Using some sculptey clay I bought a while back, I wanted to make a little key catch all plate. I've never used this stuff before so I didn't know what to expect.
Materials: Sculptey clay, rolling pin, glass bowl, key, butter knife, oven
The end result isn't exactly as I hoped. I wish it had that nice matte look that real ceramics have (is it something I'm doing wrong or is it just a limitation of this product) - this is a bit more plastic looking. And there were way too many imperfections and little bumps due to my own poor sculpting abilities. All that said, I'm glad I gave it a go. I think I might use this stuff again for some Christmas gift tags.
Anyone master this material and have tips for me on how to improve?
