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. 

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.
