Create inspirational tags or glue-on words with Cernit Nature Colors clay, which have a natural, antique look. Follow this clay tutorial from Marie Segal to create wearable tags or embellishments for your craft projects.
Condition the color of clay you want to use. Cut the stamps apart, or not. That is really up to you I guess. Roll little coils that are a little longer than the stamp you are going to use. If the words are skinny make the coil smaller in diameter. If the words are thicker make the little coil thicker These two in the first step should give you the general idea.
Flatten and lengthen the coil a little.
Lie one end of the coil at the bottom or end of the word and have the excess extend over the beginning of the word. Do not press the stamp all the way in. It looks better if you do not have the outline of the outside of the rubber there on the clay. When you antique it after it is baked it will highlight that line there. Do not peel off the stamp yet.
Use the point of the pen to make the whole in the top of the little tag. It works great if you press gently on the rubber to hold it and drill the pen to loosen it from the clay and make the hole.
Peel off the stamp and then bake this on a tray just the way it is.
Going through it again with the other stamp. Smaller or thinner stamp, smaller coil, flatten and lengthen a little.
Press in the little stamp, these stamps are made for clay and are very deep, so do not press too far. It is OK if you do because you just smash it up and roll in to a coil again. No worries.
Use the pen again and drill the little hole in the one end.
Peel the stamp out. BAM!!!!
