Sweet Friends, Air Dry Clay is so fun to use. I have created a variety of projects using Air Dry Clay and today I wanted to share them with you. Most of these projects are on the Create With Cynthia Blog and You Tube Channel. If you are inspired to create your own projects, you can shop my online store CreateWithCynthiaShop.com
Iron Orchid Designs Air Dry Clay easily adheres to any surface with glue. You can create and craft any sculpure, design or image and then just let it dry. The clay dries over night and then it is paintable.
Iron Orchid Designs has also created Decor Moulds and Stamps to be used with the clay. The possibilities are endless. On the wine charms above I used the BirdSong Moulds. I added a wine charm and then once the moulds were dry I painted the birds with paint.
The bird wine charms add such a beautiful decor piece to tablescapes. Just attach them to the bottom of a glass to add a pop of color. You can see how I created these beauties on my You Tube Channel.
You can also take clay and adhere it to furniture. The Nightstand Furniture Makeover came out very unique with a one of a kind look. On this project I used DIY Paint Dark Wax to get into all the crevices of the moulds. I then finished it with a coat of White Wax.
Iron Orchid Designs Air Dry Clay used with the Decor Moulds can create beautiful pieces of art like this Mermaid Mobile. I used clay to create a handful of mermaid with the Mermaid Mould. Then I attached the mermaids with clear string to an embroidery hoop.
The project ideas really are endless when it comes to using Clay. On the Furniture Makeover Dresser below I created a vase with a rolling pin and then stamped using the Iron Orchid Designs French Script Stamp onto the clay before it dried. I used Golden Ticket which is a paint product from DIY Paint and a Iron Orchid Designs Decor Transfer of florals to finish off the look. I’ve got a blog post and a video in my Iron Orchid Designs Clay Project Playlist that you can watch for the full tutorial.
During the different seasons I love to incorporate the use of clay into my seasonal projects. The wood eggs were created during the Easter Season. I really enjoyed creating baskets and trays full of these gorgeous and colorful eggs.
I hope I’ve inspired you to try using Air Dry Clay in your Home Decor DIY projects. I’m certain you’ll be satisfied with your creations. Now go out there and Create Something.
