Porcelain clay and gold leaf add an extra special touch to a Christmas greeting card from AMACO.

 

Materials:

  • AMACO® Craft Porcelain Modeling Material
  • AMACO® Rub ‘n Buff® — Gold Leaf
  • Loew-Cornell Water Color Crayons
  • Black Card Stock
  • Grey Paper
  • Decorative Papers in Colors of Choice
  • #2 Rounded Tip Clay Shaper
  • Fiskars Paper Edgers — Deckle Paper
  • Glue of Choice.


Helpful Hint: Keep a small bowl of water and paper towels handy. Wrap craft projects in wet paper towel to keep it from drying out.


Steps:

  1. Letters are created by rolling a ball of clay into a log and shaping it into the desired letter. When dry to the touch, apply Rub ‘n Buff®. Note: The size of the ball determines the size of the letter.
     
  2. Holly berries: Roll 3 small balls.
     
  3. Leaves: Roll a ¼" ball into a teardrop and flatten. Feather edges of leaves until they are thin. Draw in veins with clay shaper.
     
  4. Place three leaves together. Paint green with watercolor crayons. Paint berries red and apply over top of leaves.
     
  5. Cut Black Cardstock:

    # 6" x 12" (fold in half)
    # 3" x 3"
    # 2¾" x 2¾" (cut edges with deckle scissors)
    # 1½" x 5½" strip
     
  6. Cut Grey paper:

    # 2;" x 2"
    # ½" x 5½"
     
  7. Layer the paper using the picture as a guide. Add mullbery paper to top of square. Glue on holly embellishment and letters. Highlight edges of paper with Rub ‘n Buff®
     
  8. Add interest by varying the size of the card such as in the second sample. Embellish the letters with holly leaves or other flowers of choice.
