Clay Wallhanging

Here is another fun way of using the amazing 3D Embossing Folders from Crafters Companion. When I first used these folders I really was blown away at the detail, depth and dimension they gave. So much so that I was intrigued as to what else I could do with them, so here is one thing I came up with, using the Country Garden Folder.

I rolled out my air dry clay to approximately 6 mm (a little thicker than I required). To make sure it was even, I used chipboard either side as a measure. I placed the embossing folder over the clay and rolled again. Then using a pastry cutter, I cut the area I wanted.

Once thoroughly dry I added the colour, here I started with Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Mists, I used Midnight Blue and Purple Violet.

I wanted a random blend of colour so I dabbed the colour in areas and then added the second colour slightly overlapping. Once dry there was no hard line.

To add a protective coat I used a couple of coats of Spray n Shine from Crafters Companion.

To finish I added a ribbon tag at the back for hanging, then I entirely covered the back with felt to protect the wall.

This could be made in any colour you choose. Also they could be made in a range of clays depending on what you would like to use it for. I have tried it with stoneware clay, so it makes a great coaster or even a hanging for the garden. The possibilities are really endless. Thank you for visiting today, I hope you liek what I have shared and hope to see you again soon. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
