Clay Ornaments with Stamps

Thank you so much for all your outpouring of love on my previous post where I shared Colorado Craft Company’s newest Anita Jeram Christmas release!

I made a quick process video for the way I used these stamps to make ornaments — please refer to the instructions on your Sculpey box and also check your toaster oven settings. My toaster oven isn’t calibrated properly so I had to experiment quite a bit until I found just the right temperature and figured out the right amount of time for my clay ornaments to bake and not burn.

I also recommend placing your ornament on a piece of cardstock (not hard to find if you’re a paper crafter) and using aluminum foil as a tent over your ornament. Just make sure your aluminum isn’t touching the clay.

That’s really all there is to it! So simple. And once the ornament has cooled down, you can color the stamped image with any supplies you choose … again, experiment and see what you like. I hope this video is helpful. If you still have questions after watching, please do leave a comment here and I’ll do my best to help.

Now for the random pick from the comments on my previous post. The winner is…Beckie Walden!! Congratulations! Beckie wins one Hanging Stockings Mini stamp set!

Hi there, I am Mansi, a self-taught artist based in Silicon Valley. I was a full-time communications professional for two decades, with a desk job and a six-figure salary until I decided to become a mom. Motherhood, as many will attest, can be extremely exhausting, especially in those first years. Art became my quiet place. It restored my sense of self. It gave me renewed energy. It helped me become a better mom. I was led down the path of creation by instinct and “discovered“ in early 2019 by a fellow kindred spirit at one of my art pop-ups who asked me to join her entrepreneurial venture. While I immersed myself full time in the role of CFO and co-founder of this women-led venture supporting local women makers, I missed experimenting with mixed-media. So, in 2021, I've decided to focus my energies full time in finessing my craft, producing more online tutorials and offering in-person art workshops for both adults and children. Thank you for joining me on this adventure as I experiment, learn and continue creating custom pieces of joy.
