Stamp Easter egg designs on clay and color them with StazOn inks and Memento Dual Tip Markers to make Easter ornaments. Decorate tree branches in a vase for a Spring and Easter theme or add them to gift packages and bags.
Time: 30 min + drying time
On a flat piece of clay, press the egg design stamp.
Remove the stamp and cut around the design with a pointed tool (a pallet knife, a piercing tool, etc). Don’t forget to open a hole on the top of the shape. Let the clay cure.
When the clay shapes are ready use a filling tool or some sanding paper to smooth the edge of the clay eggs.
Use a Sponge Dauber and the StazOn Eden Green to color the embossed designs. You can press the ink pad directly on the clay egg to add more color strength to the embossed design.
Color parts of the stamped design with the MEMENTO Dual Tip Markers in greenish shades.
For the next design use the StazOn Black Cherry and the MEMENTO Dual Tip Marker Tuxedo black, Angel Pink and Lady Bug to color it following the same procedure as above.
Finally, use StazOn Fuschia Pink and MEMENTO Dual Tip Markers Pear Tart, Rose Bud and Bamboo Leaves to color the clay egg.
You can color around the edges of the clay eggs with the All-Purpose Ink Vegas Gold and add ribbons.
