I molded the clay into various shapes which would eventually be the covers of the books. I then stamped the clay with the metal letters and made some holes with a needle on the left to use to put jump rings through later. Next step was to bake the clay pieces in the oven for 15 minutes at 275 degrees.
Once the clay pieces were baked, I applied some silver and gold Rub 'n Buff finish to them. Now the words really stand out and you can see why I use black clay.
I'm not sure what I'll do with them, but they make cute little charms to add to something!
Below is a picture of what the gold and silver Rub 'n Buff looks like, which is on top of my Daily Journal. It's hard to believe, but I'm still keeping up with the journal...every week I make a paper doll to add to it. This is the one I created for next week. I used a new stamp from Pam Carriker.
Once the year is over, I'm thinking of scanning all my paper dolls and making them available digitally - if people are interested. Have a nice weekend!
