When we got the call that school was closed for the day due to 6 inches of new snow, I must admit I was relieved. At last an excuse to hide away from our schedule and just concentrate on some forgotten projects that were calling my name….
Handmade angel ornaments made from paper clay. They look like cookies! I rolled out the paper clay and laid my printed angels out on top. Using a knife, I cut around the images leaving a little border. I didn’t realize that the clay shrinks as it dries so next time I will leave more room. Luckily I remembered to poke some holes for the wires beforehand too. It took a long time for the clay to harden up, over a week. Then I painted the dried clay with permanent ink so they would be colorful. Glued on my images with mat medium and coated with matte medium and matte varnish for a finished look. Then came the wires and sweet little glass pearl beads.
