If you haven’t noticed by now, air dry clay is one of my favourite things to work with. I love being able to make ceramic items without a kiln – and I know the finish isn’t quite as durable or watertight as the real thing, but it’s pretty damn good all the same. So I made myself an air dry clay necklace last week. Actually, I’m lying. I made it for someone else. But I liked it, so… mine. I know, that’s not very nice but still. Mine.
I’m loving pandas right now. I’d quite like to make a panda cushion actually… but perhaps I’m too old to have pandas on my sofa (am I? probably). I’m definitely too old to be wearing anything with pandas on it. So for now I thought I’d stick to a nice pair of clay panda plates to hold trinkets and jewels. These are made from air-dry clay which is so easy to work with and when done right looks just like normal clay. Bear (panda bear) in mind that the clay will take a couple of days to set. It is also not as hardy as real clay and certainly won’t survive any contact with water. I mean, its air-dry… so… that’s obvious, right?!
