Getting Festive with Creative Paperclay®

Hello friends and fans! Jenn here today sharing my Holiday Spirit by getting festive with Creative Paperclay®!!

Using Creative Paperclay® Modeling Material and some simple holiday cookie cutters I have created a few different things today to share.

First, here is how I started with all the fun shapes!

First, roll out a nice even layer of Creative Paperclay® with a rolling pin onto wax paper. Cut each shape desired with cookie cutter. Let these dry for at least one night. 
As an added tip***lightly brush some corn starch on your rolling pin to prevent any sticking when rolling out your clay.

Now we are on to the painting and adding hangers!

All of the pieces were painted using acrylics. The tree was assembled as an ornament using ribbon adhered to the back. The stars were assembled using a string of metallic red beads which were embedded into the clay before drying. The other pieces were painted and set aside to use as embellishments for another crafty creation!

As you can see creating these lovely ornaments and embellishments is simple and fun using Creative Paperclay®!! This would be a fun holiday project to do with your children as well!!

Creative Paperclay® is available to purchase at the online store as well as Michael's, Hobby Lobby, and Joann's.

Thanks so much for viewing my post today and Happy Holidays!!

Bejeweled Creative Paperclay® Painting

I have been working on a series of 48" x 48" paintings using Creative Paperclay® as part of my narrative. This piece is in its early stages and is just blocked in at this point. I loved combining the old with new in my work so I started with a traditional pose from the 1500's combined with highly decorated clay hearts.

Creative Paperclay®
Silicone mold
Found objects
Acrylic paint
Amazing Molding Putty
E6000 glue
Soft gel gloss

I started by casting a series of hearts. The mold was made from my collection of milagros and exvotos using Amazing Molding Putty.

While this was drying I gathered beads, found objects and E6000 glue.

The dried hearts were attached to my painting with soft gel gloss. BTW I work on wood panels.

People leave me bags of broken jewelry and other goodies at my door step. Last week I received three bags from three different people. It is like Christmas when I get these.

At a thrift door the last week, I found large bags of broken jewelry and odds and ends for a cheap price and I didn't pick them up. When I went back they were gone. Still kicking myself. 

This piece has faux pearls from the 30's, old bracelet and small charm.

I definitely have a baroque heart in this body that keeps trying to come out. Decorated with faux pearl, salt water pears, micro beads and vintage broach.

Old beaded necklace, broach and some mica flakes finished off this heart.

The finished piece will be posted on my facebook page when done -

Dream in Color and throw nothing out.
