First, we are going to add some color to the white clay by putting the clay into a ziplock baggie and spraying in some of the Color Shine.
Mix it well by squeezing the baggie. Once you take it out of the bag the clay will be somewhat sticky, I suggest letting the clay rest for a minute or two before continuing to mix it completely.
Just because Color Shine has mica in it, you will not see the glimmer. But, you will end up with a beautiful grey color
Now you have your beautifully custom colored clay to add to the moon face mold. Being that my piece is thick, I let it dry overnight.
After the moon face mold dried thoroughly. Take the borders mold and black clay to form your edging. I chose the twist form. Lay down a layer of adhesive to the side of your moon face and attach the border. Let it dry completely.
Add accent painting and let dry. Stamp with script stamp and permanent ink.
To finish off the project add your piece to your painted wooden vaneer embellishment and then the entire piece to a completed wooden base. For a cute touch, I added mine to a miniature wooden easel.
