383 "MOM" Magnet Project
#383 – “MOM” Magnet
Clay Casting Project

An easy project for kids of all ages!



Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #383 – "MOM"
Clay* - we used Creative Paperlay® which air dries to a paintable pure white (no oven needed)
1 clay casting* - #383 – "MOM" (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: white or off-white, red, orange, yellow-gold (or any colors you like)
Tacky glue or hot glue
Optional: 1 magnet (from a craft store) 

*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. Let dry.
2.   Sand rough edges smooth. 
3.  Optional: Apply primer and let dry.
4.  Apply white or off-white paint to background and let dry. Apply yellow-gold to flowers, orange to edges of flowers, red to flower centers and letters, allowing paint to dry between colors so colors won't run together.
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.
