Seabed Pencil Holder by Andrijana Katavic

SEABED PENCIL HOLDER
Designed by Andrijana Katavić

Hello everyone! I love my cat Zvrle, who loves to play with piece of rope and to eat certain types of food that is packed in cans. As an ecologically conscious being, I like to recycle. I love the sea, which is not surprising since my dad is retired captain of cargo ships and I crossed all the oceans with him. Also, I love to play with Makin’s Clay®. So this holder is a combination of several of my loves. It is great for its multifunctionality, and will bring a touch of summer in every room and remind your on holiday even during winter days. 

MATERIALS LIST:
Makin’s Clay® - Natural 60 g
                         - Push Mold - Sea Shells
                         - Clay Mixing Ruler™
                         - Roller & Cutters Tool Set
                         - Professional® Cutting Mat
2 Empty and clean cans
Hank of thinner rope - about 5 to 10 meters in length
Beacon’s™ Quick Grip Permanent Adhesive
Beacon’s™ Premium Tacky Glue
Heyda Ink Pads - gold, turquoise and lavender 
Wide hard painting brush
Small bowl for color mixing
Water - 4 to 5 tablespoons
Pliers
Hammer (optional)
Sharp scissors

INSTRUCTIONS:

STEP 1.
Place Makin’s Professional® Cutting Mat on your working table. Unpack Natural Makin's Clay® and using the Mixing Ruler measure piece of clay in H hole. With fingers press one part of measured clay in the starfish segment in the Sea Shell push mold. Flat clay in the mold with Makin’s® Roller and remove any possible excess of clay with spiky (pointy) modeling tool which is included in Mixing Ruler set. Release the piece from mold (flexibility and non-sticky of the push mold allows you to remove the clay quite easily) and bend it around one can. Repeat whole process 4 more time, because for this project you’ll need 5 starfish. Then measure clay in G hole and make thin shell. Also, measure two pieces of clay in F hole of the Mixing Ruler and make two smaller shells. 
NOTE: Having the right of amount of clay for the mold work better than trying to add large amount of clay and trim away. So, use Mixing Ruler for measuring. How to use this great tool you can find out HERE, and also if you check other April's projects made by Makin’s Clay® Design Team.

STEP 2.
Take gold ink pad and dub lightly on every starfish. Move the can to ease access to clay. Take lavender ink pad and dub lightly on all shells. Then use turquoise pad and dub it on all shells. Finally, dab the gold pad on shells. This way, the shells will get a pearlescent appearance. Now bend shells around tin too. Leave clay on can aside to dry for at least 12 hours.

NOTE: You do not have to cover the complete surface of clay with ink pads, but only to accentuate certain parts of the textures.

STEP 3.
While the clay dries on one can, take another tin and with pliers squeeze the sharp edges inside it. If you need, process edges additionally with a hammer to make sure that you can’t be injured on it.

NOTE: I used cans of Zvrle’s (my cat) food, but you can use any tin regardless of the size and depth.

STEP 4.
Apply small amount of Beacon’s™ Quick Grip Permanent Adhesive near the opening of can. Place
rope (as shown in photo) on Adhesive to secure it in place. Leave for few minutes to dry, and then start to wind up rope tightly around can.

STEP 5.
During the winding, periodically press threads with fingers for better adhesion and to prevent visibility of metal as much as possible. At the end of winding, apply a thin layer of Beacon’s™ Quick Grip near the bottom of can, cut the rope with sharp scissors and place end of rope on glue. Leave aside for few minutes to dry.

STEP 6.
In the bowl mix 4 to 5 tablespoons of water with 1 tablespoon of Beacon’s™ Premium Tacky Glue. Dip brush in the mixture and apply it on rope. The mixture is quite liquid, so be careful that there is no uncontrolled leakage. Also, be sure that you smeared all surface of rope and that mixture is entered between the threads. Leave aside for about 10 to 15 minutes to dry. This way rope will stick to the can and will get a nice, subtle sheen.



STEP 7.
Remove the clay from the can. On the bottom of each clay form apply a small amount of Beacon’s™
Quick Grip and put it on a wrapped can. Press clay pieces a bit to shape them around the wrapped can and to secure them in place. Leave to dry for another 12 hours.

NOTE: After drying for about 12 hours the clay is still flexible, but at the pressure you can’t disrupt its shape or texture.

Put your pens or crayons in the holder, and enjoy your creation. This holder is multifunctional and also can be used as a vase (just add water inside and put a flower bouquet) or as pot for succulents, spices and other plants.
