: : : Materials : : :

  • Hobby knife set
  • Brass molds
  • Oven thermometer
  • Baby powder or a spray bottle filled with water
  • Toaster oven
Spritz the brass mold with a light spray of water or dust with a small amount of baby powder to act as a release agent.
Neatly fill the stamped area with Kato Polyclay and press to capture the texture of the stamp.
Gently lift a corner to make sure you are happy with the impression. If not, press the clay back down and apply pressure across the surface of the clay to capture the details better. If you are happy, remove the clay and transfer, impression up, onto a non-stick worksheet.
Using a craft knife, trim any excess clay from the design. Cure in a clay-dedicated oven at 275-degrees Fahrenheit; let cool to room temperature.
