A Valentine Creative Paperclay® Delight Clay Project

It’s hard to believe that Valentine’s Day is just right around the corner. This project turned out so cute I thought you might want to make something at least similar to it for someone special in your life. To start with I took some little hearts that I had and made a mold of them. I then filled them with Delight Clay, waited for them to start drying and then popped them out to finish drying. (They dry quicker when they’re out of the mold).

Once dry I painted them red and white. I took an 8X10 canvas board, spritzed it with some paint, used some Mod Podge and attached some green fiber, paper, string, words, flowers and my cute little hearts. Take a look at the final project and tell me what you think.

You can change the idea, use the Delight Clay in a different way etc. I’ve got to say this is one of the few times that I’ve used the Delight Clay but have to say it’s great for Mixed Media such as this or for scrapbooking or card making. It is so light weight, it takes detail amazingly and takes paint well.  This project would look very nice on a little stand which is what I plan to put it on.

Don’t forget to join us for the blog hop on Feb.1, “Love Cast in Clay”. We’re going to have some awesome prizes to give away!
