AIR DRY CLAY: Everything you need to get started.

CLAY NIGHT

My sister invited us (the boyfriend and I) over to her home for a clay making night, so fun. We used natural air drying clay, it was super soft, easy to mold, and that night I ended up making a little toad sitting on a mushroom cap.

It was pretty cool to see that blob of clay transform into that little creature. I was hooked and wanted to make more things!

YOU KNOW I FILMED IT TOO!

THE SHOPPING LIST:

SAVE MONEY ON YOUR SUPPLIES

click here for weekly coupon

NATURAL CLAY: I recommend you buy this from Michael’s. On their website, you’ll find weekly discounts for up to 50% off any item.

MOD PODGE: The secret sauce! this seals the clay and gives you a smooth canvas to paint on.

RUST-OLEUM SPECIALITY LACQUER: This brand is the best because it had a ‘professional” finish. Every place I went to was sold out and for good reason, its’ the best!

PAINT: Don’t cheap out as I did, my sister even told me to buy the patio paint, but it was $3 more per bottle and I thought it would’t make a difference.. it did. 

BBQ SKEWERS: Get these at your local dollar store, they’ll be cheap!

TOOLS: You can buy a sculpting kit, or you can use things from your kitchen, like a butter knife, water bottle, and toothpicks. 

SET THE TONE

Music and space! Once I had all of my supplies, I pressed play on my favorite playlist and then set up my workspace. I choose our kitchen because we get a ton of natural light.

PLANT CHARMS & POTS

THE RECEPTIONIST FROM Bettlejuice

Miss Argentina - Beetlejuice Rules To The After Life (Neitherworld)

My inspiration for painting the boobies teal is the receptionist from Beetlejuice. The one who slams the divider shut when Adam & Barbra are in Neitherworld waiting room. 

GIRAFFE: Originally a little pot with black stripes, this guy was transformed into a giraffe after my friend pointed out it looked like the bottom half of a giraffe. I loved his idea and went with it!

So if you’ve been thinking about clay, I say do it! And don’t forget to get that discount coupon off Michels website!
