Art to HeArt …….Creating with Clay




…I’ve been wanting to play with clay again after being inspired by a couple of artists using it in their artwork.I had bought a pack of white clay at The Works a while ago…i was really hoping it hadn’t dried out but keeping it stored in a zip lock bag meant it was as good as new.


…..are you like me and have a “collection” of supplies (I’m not owning up to the size of the “Collection”!!)  I pick up mini frames, cutters, papers,embellishments etc with no fixed project in mind …..but they are cute and seem to jump in my basket and sit patiently waiting to be taken home…


i rolled the clay out using my brayer ……i cant be without brayers for painting and journals but hadn’t used them with clay……..perfect way to roll out the clay to the right thickness.

If anyone sees a mini rolling pin will you let me know because i would like to give that a try with clay too

these cute little heart cutters i found at Hobbycraft ….only £2.50 and cut through clay really well…..

After i had rolled and cut out the hearts I let them air dry on a mini drying rack from………….Poundland…..perfect size for this job…and ONLY a £1 !!!

The clay took a day to air dry,i could have speeded it up but i worked on another project

so no hurry….

I painted the hearts with DecoArt acrylic paint, it covered really well…..I’ve tried all types of paint but always return to this paint because of its quality when i paint on wood and it covers really well on clay. (I use a variety of different paints and materials when journaling..more about that another time)

I love hearts and I love miniature = Creative Happy

these hearts measure 1.5 cm


loved this frame when i saw it because of how classy it looked


I also made a mini tag ……you can’t beat a tag…i keep all my handmade tags  (i keep them in a box to hug later………OK i know ..I’m WEIRD !!!!!]


On another note……I LOVE this verse….knowing I’m loved….So are you……….can’t beat it

  1. Hi Sandra, I think Ikea might mini rolling pins as part of a kiddie set. Perhaps your hubby has a piece of thick dowelling that might do the trick x


  2. Love your clay project. I’ve never worked with clay you make it look so easy, I might give it a go. I wonder if I could produce some funky buttons ??? Thanks for sharing x
