Using this Seashell Mold I was able to create some embellishments
for my frame. In less than an hour it was dry enough to remove from
the mold, but I would air dry for at least a day before using. It continues
to dry into a sturdy, flexible state. This clay was so user friendly that I could
use my scissors to trim away the excess.
(I kneaded in powder and gelatos to achieve color.)
covered it with a scrap piece of tissue paper; pressing it down to adhere.
(Keeping it loose and crinkly adds great texture.)
further adhered the paper to the frame.
(This requires no precision & allowed for plenty of color blending.)
loose edges with more gel medium and cut an X in the middle to
create an opening for the picture.
(Smooth to the inside edge and adhere with gel medium.)
(The lightweight clay is perfect for the tissue paper surface.)
Now I have the perfect gift for my cruise-loving relative.
