306 Rolling Star Magnet Project
#306 - Rolling Star Magnet
Paper Casting Project

And matching cookies that celebrate America's quilting heritage!

          

Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #306 – Rolling Star
Cotton linter - (see Rycraft Paper Casting Kit and Refill)
1 paper casting* - #306 – Rolling Star (see Basic Paper Casting Instructions).  Note: We added herbs to our cotton pulp for more color and texture (see enlarged photo below).
Clear acrylic varnish
Acrylic paints: red and 2 shades of gold (or red and 2 shades of green, or any colors you prefer – how about red, white and blue?)
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.
Instructions:

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 quilt design, one color at a time, letting paint dry between coats so paints won't run together. Use the lighter color of gold to highlight the top center portion of the 8 star points in teh center, as shown below.
3.  Optional: Apply another coat of varnish to protect painted casting.
4.  Optional:  Glue magnet to back of casting. 
5.  Or use painted casting to decorate gift boxes and bags, candles or vases, 4th of July table favors and decorations, ornaments, and any other use you can think of.
