Gather your clay! I used a variety of scrap colors.
1
Marble your colors together by twisting and rolling them together until you find a pattern you like
2
Add texture to your clay. I used the “Bargello Design” texture sheet from CreateAlong.com
3
Press firmly and evenly on the stamp. You can also roll it with an acrylic roller.
4
Create your template! I printed a capital S from the font “DIN Condensed.” Size it to 3 inches tall
5
Cut out your template using an X-Acto knife and place it over your clay. Use the knife to cut clay.
6
Gently remove the excess clay.
7
Blend the remaining clay into a uniform color and roll it flat.
8
Use a silkscreen for added pattern! I used this “Free Spirit Southwest” from CreateAlong.com
9
Place your silkscreen on the clay. Using acrylic paint and a squeegee, spread the paint evenly.
10
Reveal your design! Immediately wash your silkscreen while you wait for the paint to dry on the clay
11
Repeat the template step, but flip the template so your S is the opposite direction.
12
The two S’s should be mirrored images.
13
Use the template as a guide to bend your paper clip.
14
Trim the excess wire.
15
Place the paper clip on the back of one of your S shapes.
16
Add some liquid clay evenly over the clay and paper clip.
17
Add the other piece of clay on top and press them together.
18
Press the other S shape over the paper clip and make sure the clay seam is joined all the way around
19
Bake according to your clay’s instructions. I baked for 45 minutes at 275°F.
20
Once cooled, your ear saver is ready to use!
21
Stay safe! Stay Healthy! Stay home.
