 Instructions:

  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 hooks 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. Base both sides of the clay tile with White Wash to brighten. Place the Snowflake stamp of choice onto an acrylic handle. Dampen sponge and remove as much water as possible. Load with True Blue. 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.
  3. Coat the edges of the clay tile with a VersaMarker™ Watermark Pen and sprinkle with embossing powder. Set with Heat Gun.
  4. Apply mulitple coats of Triple Thick follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Add necklace and bead with jump rings.
