You can make impressions in clay for decorating, jewelry or just for fun.
All you need is some Sculpy Clay, wax paper, a rolling pin (a jar or anything flat) and your imagination!
Grab the kids, go out in the yard and find some interesting materials.
Look for things that have a lot of texture.
Take your pieces of clay roll them into balls or other shapes, put them on wax paper and flatten them. Use a rolling pin, or flatten with a flat object.
Arrange your leaves and flowers on them.
Put wax paper over them and press them into the clay by using the rolling pin.
Remove the wax paper and take off your leaves and flowers.
You should have beautiful impressions. The fun part is if you don’t like your results, reflatten and do it again. When you have what you like, you can put a hole in the top with a tooth pick or nail.
Follow the instructions on your clay for hardening.
Mine are baked in a 275 degree oven for 15 minutes.
When hard, add a string or bow, you could even paint them if you like and you have beautiful ornaments, pendants to hang or display.
