#266 – Sunface Greeting Card
Paper Casting Project

Give a gift box of delicious cookies with a greeting card to match.


Materials Needed: 

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #266 – Sunface   OR   #1006 – Sunface
100% Cotton Linter (Rycraft Paper Casting Kit or Refill)
1 paper casting* of design 
#266 – Sunface   OR   #1006 – 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.

Note: You can substitute Import design #1006 – Sunface for Heirloom design #266 (pictured).
       

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. Variation: Varnish only the snowman design and leave the background unvarnished.

   
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: bronze for 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.
