369 J&J Frost Framed Art Project
#369 – Jack & Jill Frost Framed Art
Clay Casting Project

Give a unique gift or decorate your own home for Christmas
with this beautiful wall hanging plus a second one to make a pair!




Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #369 – Jack & Jill Frost
Clay* - we used Creative Paperlay® which air dries to a paintable pure white (no oven needed)
1 clay casting* - #369 – Jack & Jill Frost (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions)
1 2-inch round cookie cutter
Sandpaper or emery board (fine grit)
Acrylic primer (optional)
1 shadow-box-type frame (that is, with enough depth to handle the thickness of the casting), with or without glass
1 piece decorative paper with snowflakes on it, or pale blue paper on which you have painted snowflakes or applied cut-outs or stickers
Acrylic paints: white, red, black, pale blue (you can also use this blue to paint the background paper if you wish)
Tacky glue or hot glue


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

1.  While clay is still wet, cut out casting with cookie cutter. Let dry.
2.  Smooth rough places with a very light sandpaper if needed.
3.  Optional: Apply a coat of primer and let dry.
4.  Apply pale blue paint to background of casting and let dry. 
5.  Apply white paint to Jack & Jill and let dry. Apply red and black separately, letting paint dry between coats to prevent running.
6.  Cut decorative paper to fit inside frame. Optional: Paint with pale blue paint if needed, apply or paint snowflakes as needed.
7.  Glue casting to center of paper.
8.  Put in frame.


Note:  The photo of this project was taken from a much larger photo and we cannot give you a better close-up, so below is a larger image of the cookie stamp showing the details of their costumes.
