257 Cowboy Boot Magnet Project
#257 – Cowboy Boot Magnet
Paper Casting Project

A great gift for the horse lover in the family.

#257 – Cowboy Boot

Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #257 – Cowboy Boot
Cotton linter - (see Rycraft Paper Casting Kit and Refill)
Clear acrylic varnish
Acrylic paints: rusty red, creamy white, black, gray (or any colors you prefer)
1 magnet (from craft store)

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


1. When casting is dry, varnish both sides of the casting to seal it before painting (so wet paint won't make design disappear) and for more sturdiness. Let dry. Optional: Apply a 2nd coat of varnish for more permanence.
2. Apply paint to boot design, one color at a time, letting paint dry between coats so paints won't run together. 
3.  Optional: Apply another coat of varnish to protect painted casting.
4.  Optional:  Glue magnet to back of casting.
