080 Wedding Bells Magnet Project
#080 – Wedding Bells Magnet
Clay Casting Project
A charming anniversary or wedding
gift your kids can make!

Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #080 – Wedding Bells
Clay* - we used Creative Paperlay® which air dries to a paintable pure white (no oven needed)
1 clay casting* - #080 – Wedding Bells (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions)
1   2"-diameter round cookie cutter
Sandpaper or emery board (fine grit)
Acrylic primer (optional)
Acrylic clear varnish (optional)
Acrylic paints: gold, ivory (or whatever colors you like)
Tacky glue or hot glue
Optional: 1 magnet (from a craft store). 
Optional - For an ornament: 1 piece of jute or string, fishing line, or ribbon 8" long (or longer if desired) for hanger.

*Note:  Alternately, the casting for this project may be made from paper instead of clay (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions). The choice is yours. 

1.  While clay is wet, cut out casting using cookie cutter. If you are going to make an ornament, use toothpick to poke a hole in the top (see How to Make a Hole). Let dry.
2.   Sand rough edges smooth.
3.  Optional: Apply primer and let dry.
4.  Apply ivory paint to background and let dry. Apply gold to bells and let dry.
5.  Optional:  Apply a coat of varnish for permanence. Note: Varnish will leave a more glossy finish.
6. Use hot glue to attach magnet to back, or make an ornament by attaching a piece of jute or string, fishing line, or ribbon 8" long (or longer if desired) for hanger.
