  1. Working on a smooth, clean work surface, use rolling pin to evenly flatten desired 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 Rycraft Cookie Stamp pattern(s) into the rolled out Paperclay®.
  3. With scissors, a wooden toothpick, or other cutting tool, cut out stamped design(s) from the rolled out Paperclay®.
  4. Using your finger, evenly moisten the reverse side of the stamped Paperclay® design piece(s) with a generous amount of water.
  5. Attach Paperclay® design(s) to terracotta clay pot by simply laying the moistened design piece(s) onto the pot, and very gently applying a minimum of pressure to entire area.
  6. Place terra cotta clay pot upside down onto non-stick baking sheet, and put into oven preheated to 250 degrees. Bake for approximately 30 minutes.
  7. Remove carefully from oven, and let cool.
  8. Use small folded pieces of sandpaper to sand away rough edges, and create a smooth edged effect.
  9. Paint pot as desired using acrylic paints.
  10. Let dry, and varnish with acrylic varnish.
  11. Optional: Add Aleene’s Satin Sheen handle, raffia bow, and filler material of choice.
