Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Makin's Clay tutorial.
As this month we make Holidays projects, I decided to make an ornament. But then I decided that I want it full of glitter and in non traditional colors.
So pink, blue and golden yellow colors were the colors I picked for this project.
Another thing I tried to do in this tutorial was to find a few ways to add glitters to Makin's Clay and to see the ways that I like while working with glitter inside or over the clay.
So here is my step by step tutorial for you and I am sorry for the not so good photos, but it's raining here for a few weeks already and I can't do outside photos with the good light.
1. The first way to add glitter to Makin's clay is to cover the wet clay with some glazing medium and just to sprinkle the glitter over. After the glitter is dry we can see this sparkling clay.
So first I covered the $1 plastic tree ornament with the wide circled yellow clay snakes made with Makin's Professional Ultimate Clay extruder.
I took a whole package of the yellow clay to make the cover of the 1/3 top and 1/3 bottom as I used the very thick rolls, but if you want to cover it all, use the smaller circled disc and it will cover the whole ball.
2. As a next step I covered the ball with Ranger Glaze Accents and added a generous amount of golden glitter. Now let it dry for a few hours.
3. While waiting for the ball to dry you can make your embellishments.
The pink embellishments were made with Makin's Clay Christmas Nature push mold and another way to add glitter to Makin's Clay.
I used white clay and mixed it generously with red glitter. I used the Makin's Proffecional Ultimate Clay Machine to mix the color and it's not very glittery after all, but the color is pretty and looks like some kind of pink marble.
The mixed clay was pushed into the mold and I trimmed the edges when it was totally air dry.As it wasn't too too sparkling for me, I added a bit of blue glitter over the dry pieces.
I made the thin sheets of white clay using theMakin's Proffecional Ultimate Clay Machine on setting #5 and covered the wet pieces with blue glitter.
6. Now I arranged the molded and die cut pieces over the dry golden ornament using hot glue and you can see this beauty from 3 sides as there are a lot of clay shapes over the ball.
And this is how it looks from the top.
All you need is just to hang it on your Christmas tree!
