  1. Working on a smooth, clean work surface, use rolling pin to evenly flatten large amount of Paperclay® to approximately 1/4" thickness. Rolling the Paperclay® out between two sheets of waxed paper will also work.
  2. Gently, with evenly distributed pressure, stamp Rubber Stampede® Pattern Alphabet letters individually into the rolled out Paperclay®. Be sure to leave ample space between the stamped letters for cutting out.
  3. Using Fiskars Paper Edgers (Deckle Edge), cut out each letter and place on non-stick cookie baking sheet.
  4. Molding by hand, or using shape cookie cutters to cut out, create additional decorative shapes. Place with ready to bake letters.
  5. Air dry letters and shapes for about 24 hours (changing sides 1/2 way through time), or bake at 250 degrees for approximately 40 minutes, turning pieces over to backsides during the last ten minutes of baking for even drying.
  6. Use glue to secure matboards to each other, and to attach woven fabric to matboard. Place into frame securely.
  7. Paint dried or baked letters and shape pieces as desired. When dry, varnish letters and pieces with acrylic varnish.
  8. Attach dry, varnished pieces using a glue gun, to material and matboard as shown or desired.
