Rustic Clay Tags - 'Soap"

Pin It
I absolutely love the little mason jar soap dispenser I shared with you this weekend.
A few of my friends have liked them as well so I've made a few extra!

Today I wanted to show you how quick and easy it is to make the little tags for decoration out of clay.


While attempting to watch tv the other night, I grabbed a cookie sheet, a sheet of tin foil, an old cookie cutter with a scallop edge and my Sculpy clay.  After rolling and flattening them {yes, they have imperfections- lends to the hand crafted feel} I used my little stamp set I had found at our local Walmart to gently imprint each letter into the clay.  I actually pumped out quite a few very quickly along with some other words I liked and baked them according to the directions on the clay


Once they were cool, each were given a quick coat of a coffee brown glaze, simply made from water and coffee bean acrylic paint.  Allowed to set just for a few seconds, then wiped with a paper towel.
The brown paint gently stains the surface.
Just do not wipe out all of the paint from the indented letters!


Each tag received a coat of satin water based poly and were allowed to dry.

When finished you have cute little clay tags to add some rustic decoration to your favorite things!

What a cute idea! Making those clay tags can become addicting, so watch out. lol! I've made many before to sell in my booth and used DAS air dry clay. It's nice and easy to use and you don't have to bake it. :)
