Add a Dash of Micro Beads

I love micro beads and mixing them with Creative Paperclay®. It is like adding jewels to my projects. And this trick is so easy.

Silicone mold
Polymer medium
Micro beads
Creative Paperclay®

Coat the mold with the polymer medium. While wet, sprinkle the beads evenly. Immediately press in the paper clay, remove and let dry.

Depending on the project I use the clay natural or color it ahead of time. Great for collage elements, ornaments or gifts.

Dream in color!

Dry Clay, Wet Clay

I have bags full of cast Creative Paperclay® objects to use in future pieces of art. I love it's adhesive qualities and the fact that I can add fresh clay to dry clay pieces or embed dry cast objects into fresh clay.

I had this painting started and wanted to addapply a halo with clay. While it was still damp I made the halo shape and smoothed it out.
I stamped into the halo with a rubber stamp then pushed the dry cast objects into the wet clay and glued the rest of the flowers to the surface with glue. Next thing will be to add paint but still at the stage where I am debating adding any more objects to the piece.
