276 Fleur de Lis Magnet Project
#276 – Fleur de Lis Magnet or Ornament
Clay Casting Project
A quick and easy gift or momento that even the little kids can make!

          


Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #276 – Fleur de Lis
Clay* - we used Creative Paperclay® which air dries to a paintable pure white (no oven needed)
1 clay casting* - #276 – Fleur de Lis (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions)
Sandpaper or emery board (fine grit)
Acrylic primer (optional)
Acrylic clear varnish (optional)
Acrylic paints: metallic gold (or any color you prefer)
Tacky glue or hot glue
Optional: 1 magnet (from a craft store). 
Optional - For an ornament: 1 piece of jute or string, fishing line, or ribbon 8" long (or longer if desired) for hanger.

*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 wet, cut out casting using sharp knife. If you are going to make an ornament, use toothpick to poke a hole in the top (see How to Make a Hole). Let dry.
2.   Sand rough edges smooth.
3.  Optional: Apply primer and let dry.
4.  Apply metallic gold paint to front and back or cut-out casting and let dry.
5.  Optional:  Apply a coat of varnish for permanence. Note: Varnish will leave a more glossy finish.
6. Use hot glue to attach magnet to back, or make an ornament by attaching a piece of jute or string, fishing line, or ribbon 8" long (or longer if desired) for hanger.
