    Tips: Read Paperclay® package directions. When drying clay, turn piece over often. When applying matte paint, allow to dry before painting nearby areas.


1) With clay (entire package) between plastic wrap, roll out to 1/2" - 3/8" thickness.
2) Ink rubber stamp; press stamp evenly into clay. Carefully remove stamp. Cut away excess clay with plastic knife.
3) Using drink box straw, make holes in top corners of clay. If needed, smooth clay edges with water-dampened finger. Air-dry at least 24 hours.
4) When clay is lightweight and completely dry, squeeze on 3-D paints, using photo as a color guide. Let paints dry completely.
5) With paintbrush, apply gloss sealer over entire project. When dry apply second coat; let dry again.
6) Put cord through holes, knotting in front. Glue knots and trim cord ends with scissors.
