Acrylic paint (your choice in color just make sure black writing will show up on it.)
Ribbon (fabric or plastic)
Black Paint Pen (probably at your craft store)
Quick air dry clay
(My clay is not quick air dry clay so mine took awhile to dry. A couple hours. But if you stick to quick air dry clay your good. I got mine at Hobby Lobby but you can get it at your local craft store too!)
Paint Pallet, container, or bowl to hold the paint.
A drinking straw. (the kind you get at the gas station.)
STEP 2 : Shaping:
STEP 3: Making a hole
2. Gently lift the straw out, still holding it vertically. You now should have a perfect hole.
3. Make sure your hole is about 1 cementer to the edge so it does not break while hanging on the tree.
4 Dont waste the clay that is in the straw. Simply pinch above the clay and squeeze it out. Just the way you squeeze toothpaste out of the tube. Put the clay in your container of clay to be used later, in other projects.
STEP 4: Drying:
1.Transport your clay ornaments to the frount porch or somewhere safe they can dry. Let dry. This step may take a while. A day at most. Hope you like waiting. ~smile~
STEP 5:Paint pen practice:
1. practice with your paint pen on the not shiny side of freezer paper. Or just card-stock. Don't use normal paper, cause it will leak through and stain your table.
STEP 6: Painting:
STEP 7: Finishing:
