384 "DAD" Magnet Project
#384 – "DAD" Magnet
Clay Casting Project

A great gift project for the kids to make for Dad!

     


Materials Needed:

1 Rycraft cookie stamp or craft stamp #384 – "DAD"
Clay* - we used Creative Paperlay® which air dries to a paintable pure white (no oven needed)
1 clay casting* - #384 – "DAD" (see Basic Clay Casting Instructions)
1   2"-diameter round cookie cutter
Sandpaper or emery board (fine grit)
Acrylic primer (optional)
Acrylic clear varnish (optional)
Acrylic paints: ivory, dark brown, rust, red (or whatever colors you like)
Tacky glue or hot glue
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 ivory paint to background and let dry. Apply colors to design (as shown), one color at a time and let dry.
5.  Optional:  Apply a coat of varnish for permanence. Note: Varnish will leave a more glossy finish.
6. Use hot glue to attach magnet to back.
