Love how the fern came out, color and detail. Floral bookmark is made with red and white clay and attached to a paperclip.

Good afternoon. We are having a rainy day here in Charlotte, NC today. Actually we have been having rain for about 10 or 11 days now. I am loosing count and can’t really remember what day it started. So today I am using it as a day to play with some new products and craft indoors.

I purchased this product some months ago and had not really played it until recently.  It is the Martha Stewart Crafts crafter’s clay and coordinating silicone molds. I absolutely love this product.  You can create all kinds of wonderful embellishments with this air dry clay.  It is so simple to use and can be colored with all kinds of inks, paints, and glitter.  You can also mix the colors of clay to achieve your own colors.  A color chart is included in the pack to help you with that.  The great thing is that it takes a very small amount of clay to make these.  The possibilities are endless when considering what they can be used for – on cards, scrapbook pages, on gifts, and more.  I can’t stop making these cute little “doodads”.

White butterfly is left as the natural color of the clay. The green butterfly is a mix of the blue, white, and yellow clays to achieve this color

Various objects created with the Martha Stewart crafter’s clay. Most are colors mixed together and some are colored with an alcohol based marker.

 

As you can see I made quite a few of these and there are others that are not shown in these photos.  I hope this inspires you to go through your stash of craft goods and stay inside on a rainy day and play!

“Stay Crafting!”
