No Bake Air Dry Clay Play

Oh man, this is long overdue. I had some fun with non-baking air dry clay. I took a couple of weeks to finish up all the clay I bought, and had to leave them to dry. The manufacturer recommended at least 24 hours, but I just left them to dry for a week before painting them with acrylic paints, and then glossing them. here are pictures if you'd like to see!

I bought white and terracotta clay from Art Friends.




Bowls as moulds. I press lightly for the clay to take shape and then gently remove it from the bowls when they are still soft, then shape it nicely again with hands.

I also tried this lace-press technique.






I find this a better mould. I could easily remove the clay.

I also made some clay pendants/ornaments.



Painted, drawn, and glazed.


Now I don't know what to do them. LOL!
