This Polymer Easter craft project shows you how to make an adorable Easter Bunny Tile that can be used as a magnet, brooch or pop a hole in it for a funky necklace.
It is recommended to use a clay – only oven (toaster oven). You can also enclose your project inside two baking pans; clamp closed & bake in regular oven. Remove once cooled.
Condition your clay by rolling and squeezing in your hands. Test to see if it cracks when you bend it – that means it needs more conditioning!
Roll the clay into a ball, flatten & roll out to desired thickness with your acrylic roller or dowel (You can also use a clay dedicated pasta machine).
Using your rubber stamp, stamp the clay with your image – be sure to press evenly. It may take a few tries.
Use your cookie cutter to cut a shape around the image – you can also trim with your clay knife instead.
Bake according to manufacturer’s directions and let cool.
Brush on a thick coat of acrylic paint, making sure you get into the depressions.
Wipe off excess with a paper towel. You may need to repeat this process.
Let the paint dry thoroughly – overnight is best.
Glaze if desired. I use varathane – found in most hardware stores. For small projects, use the clay manufacturer’s glaze. The bottles are smaller & more affordable!
Attach a magnet or pin back to the back with glue.
Enjoy or give as a gift!
Experiment with different size cutters & stamp designs for a variety of projects!!!
