Materials Needed: 

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #266 – Sunface 
100% Cotton Linter (Rycraft Cotton Linter)
paper casting* of design #266 – Sunface
 (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions).
1 blank greeting card

2 pieces of your choice of decorative papers and colors: we used 1 piece of metalic gold textured paper cut to 2 3/4"
          x 4 1/4", and a piece of dark brown, metallic gold, bronze, and black patterned paper cut to 2 1/2" x 3 7/8".

Clear acrylic varnish 
Acrylic paints: metallic gold, metallic bronze and white

*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. Let casting dry completely. Then varnish the casting to seal it before painting (so wet paint won't make design disappear). Let dry. Optional: Apply a 2nd coat of varnish for more permanence.  
2. Apply pearl-white or white paint to sunface design EXCEPT for the whites of the eyes and let dry. Then apply other colors, one color at a time, letting paint dry between coats so paints won't run together: gold for flames, bronze for forehead, cheeks and lips, white for whites of eyes. Let dry.
3.  Optional: Apply another coat of varnish to protect painted casting.
4.  Cut papers to fit your card and to then fit one over the other leaving a nice border. Glue 2 pieces together and let dry. Then glue them to the card.
5.  Glue casting to center of top paper on card.
