  1. Knead the clay so that it is soft and workable. Roll in a ball and roll the clay out using a rolling pin or acrylic roller  to 1/4 inch depth. Cut into a diamond shape to fit the stamps. Clip two eye hoops to about 1/2 inch long and add  one to each end of the diamond. Bake according to manufacturer’s instructions. Allow to cool.
  2. Place the Santa stamp onto an acrylic handle. Dampen sponge and remove as much water as possible. Load with Lamp Black. When using paint on stamps it is important that you do not overload the image. Pour a puddle of paint out on the palette. Pounce the sponge into the paint and then on a clean area of the palette. When you look at the bottom of the sponge it should be covered by paint but you should still be able to see the texture of the sponge. Now quickly pounce the loaded sponge over the entire image and stamp it onto the surface. Now stamp the reverse side with the text diamond in Lamp Black.
  3. Base the background around the Santa with Lamp Black. Base the red areas with Cherry Red, and the green areas with Mistletoe.
  4. Apply mulitple coats of Triple Thick follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
