My first Go at using Air Dry Clay!! ...

Hiya, how are you all, hope you have had a lovely weekend and been busy crafting!! Well I have been busy, I have had a go at using air dry clay....I've not used this before, the only modelling clay I have used is plasticine in my childhood days!! Lol ...Anyways I have had a go and being a bit adventurous I thought I would make a trinket dish. Here is the list of products I used:-

Fimo Air Dry Clay
Indigo Blu Stamps and Gee-Sso
Luninarte Shimmer Paints
Fimo Gloss Varnish

My Finished Result 

First I kneaded some clay, then rolled out using a rolling pin, roughly 16cm circumference. Once I was happy, I stamped the Indigo Blu flowers and leaf stamp over one half. I then used a bowl I had to cut out .... You can also use Versamark or any clear ink pad on your stamps before stamping for more clarity!!

To shape the bowl, I placed the clay into a bowl I had, which was roughly the same size and left to dry for a couple of days ...

Once dry, I smoothed out round the edge ...

I painted all over with Indigo Blu Gee-Sso ... 

Once dry I painted, the flowers and leaves with Luminarte shimmer paints Moss Green, Sea Glass, Cherry Sorbet, Razzleberry, Sunflower & Icy Iris ...

I left this to dry overnight, then gave it a coating of Fimo gloss varnish to finish and voila, one trinket dish!! 

Thanks again for taking the time to stop by, I really do appreciate your time and lovely comments!!
Hope to see you back soon
