Didn’t you just love the card I made yesterday using the Simply Pressed Clay flower I made? I can’t begin to tell you how much fun that was! As I was experimenting, I learned some do’s and don’ts that I’d like to share with you.
1. If you’re going to add a drop of ink to color the clay, don’t use vinyl gloves to prevent inky pinkies. It sticks like crazy! Use a zip top sandwich bag or some of those super cheap polyethelyne gloves like you see food service people using. The clay won’t stick to either of those.
2. The clay is very moist and adding a drop or two of ink makes it even more moist, so it can stick in the mold. You can dust the mold with your Embossing Buddy, some Dazzling Diamonds glitter or if you still have any – the Stampin’ Pastels that retired a few years ago. Or just let it sit in the mold to dry before trying to pop it out.
3. You can easily adhere your finished flowers or buttons to our project with Tombow Multi-purpose glue or a few glue dots. They weigh next to nothing!
That’s about it. Just have fun experimenting. The clay is only $6.95 for a bag that will last and last, so you’ll be able to make lots and lots of DIY embellishments!
