Air dry clay

Talking of the sugar blossom moulds (previous post!), I forgot to share with you the pictures of my project in the most recent Cardmaking and papercrafts magazine. How rude of me. I was working with the Martha Stewart air dry clay. This is fantastic, light weight, clean and of course, adaptable. You can see full instructions and materials in the mag, but for the following materials, just select HERE:

Air dry clay can be used with moulds to create flowers, and much more! Why not use it for your books! Oh yes, the cover of this notebook is air dry clay! You can use it with masks for texture. Use your paints to colour, and mica powder or gilding wax for sheen!

Lastly, of course, clay is the best for model making. This is where it all began for me in the craft world - so my little bird was a joy to create. For his body I screwed up a ball of tissue paper and worked the clay around it ( saves clay!).

Enjoying reading your blog Leonie. I was scrolling down through the photos and this bird made me laugh. Love it! It's just why I like watching you all on C&C, we always get a laugh. My hubby calls it the happy channel :-) maddy x
