382 Folk Dancers Wall Hanging Project
#382 – Folk Dancers Magnet or Ornament
Clay Casting Project

Celebrate your Scandinavian heritage or 
your love for international travel!


     

 
Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #382 – Folk Dancers
Clay* - we used Creative Paperlay® which air dries to a paintable pure white (no oven needed)
1 clay casting* - #382 – Folk Dancers (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions)
1 2" round cookie cutter
Sandpaper or emery board (fine grit)
Acrylic primer (optional)
Acrylic clear varnish (optional)
Acrylic paints: dark blue, medium blue, light blue, brown, peach, black, white, metallic gold
Tacky glue or hot glue
Optional: 1 magnet (from a craft store) or 1 piece jute 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 cookie cutter. 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 white paint to background and let dry. Apply other colors, letting paint dry between colors so they don't run together, as shown in photo below.
5.  Optional:  Apply a coat of varnish for permanence. Note: Varnish will leave a more glossy finish.
5.  Use hot glue to attach magnet to back, or for ornament, attach hanger.




Shown below: Make 5 painted castings and attach to plaque
from craft store for a beautiful wall hanging.
