- Fimo Air/microwave modelling clay
- Fimo sculpey gloss satin varnish
- Gold sharpie marker
- Cutting board
- Circular cutters or cutters of your choice
- Stampable letters (I used these)
- Tapestry thread or bakers twine
- Rolling pin
- Start by rolling out the clay until it’s all about 1cm thick.
- Use your cutters or scalpel around a stencil to stamp out your shapes. Use a pencil to make a hole at the top of each shape enabling you to hang them later. Set aside.
- For the circular decorations you need to stamp in your Christmas phrases while the clay is still mouldable.
- Leave all the shapes to dry out overnight or you can use the microwave to dry them out quicker.
- Then glaze your decorations. I did two coats either side to make sure the coverage was even and nice and glossy.
- You can now get busy with your sharpie marker. The gloss enhances the metallic affect. Simply draw out whatever design you want. My doodles are pretty easy to copy. I used a medium nib sharpie but if you want more detail you can go for a fine nib.
- Then thread your string/tapestry thread through the hole and tie a knot in the end.
