125 Rose Bouquet Project
#125 – Rose ‘n Heart Bouquet
Clay Casting Project


The perfect gift to say "I Love You!"


       
#125 – Rose    and    #223 – Basket Heart

Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp each:  #125 – Rose
Clay - we recommend Creative Paperclay® which is non-toxic and air dries to a paintable pure white 
1 casting*:  #125 – Rose  (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions)
Heart cookie cutter
Toothpick (optional)
Sandpaper or emery board
Acrylic primer (optional)
Acrylic paints: pearl white, cranberry wine, boysenberry pink, mistletoe green, gold
Foam brush or Spouncer™ by fPLAID®
Varnish (optional)
Hot glue
Ribbon bow


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

Instructions:

1. While clay is still wet, cut out casting with heart cookie cutter. Use a sharp knife to crimp or cut triangular wedges off the edge (as if you were using pinking shears). Optional: Use a toothpick to poke decorative holes near each crimping for added texture.
2. When casting is dry, sand any rough edges smooth. Optional: Apply primer to both sides of casting. Let dry.
3. Apply pearl white paint to both sides of casting and let dry.
4. Paint the rose petals with a mix of the pearl white with the pink; paint the leaves with a mix of pearl white with green. Let dry.
5. Using a foam brush and the dry brush method (see instructions on page 27), dab a tiny bit of gold paint on the raised design and the edges f the heart. Let dry. Then dab on the cranberry wine color to the raised surfaces, letting a bit of the gold shine through. Let dry.
6. Optional:  Varnish both sides and let dry.
