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
Glue

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

Instructions:

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.
