CIY Staff Tips:


Step 1

On wax paper, flatten a large clay ball with a rolling pin to create the surface for your imprints. Make it thick enough to make your impressions!

Step 2

Use found objects to press into the flattened clay. Dry overnight.

Step 3

Use a paint brush and washable or watercolour paint to give the imprints a pop of colour.

Step 4

Allow paint to dry 1–2 hours, then display!
