Gloss or Matte Sealer
Tulip Soft Fabric Paint (optional)
1. Measure two parts cornstarch to one part Tacky Glue into a plastic bag.
2. Knead the mixture in the plastic bag until it’s smooth and pliable, which will take 5 to 10 minutes.
3. Add more cornstarch if the mixture is too sticky and add more glue if the mixture is too stiff.
4. When the clay forms a ball, it’s ready to roll out on a flat surface and cut out into shapes with craft knife. Or, pinch into pieces to form into a sculptured shape. Lay waxed paper on your work surface and over your ball of clay before rolling to keep your surface and rolling pin clean.
5. For a bow, cut strips of thin clay, ½” wide and form into a bow shape.
6. Let the finished piece dry for 24 to 48 hours.
7. Adhere bow to ring blank with a glue tab.
8. You can spray with gloss or matte sealer to protect your finished project.
Option: Cornstarch dough is white in color and ready to use. If you want to add color, you can add drops of Tulip® Soft® Fabric Paint and knead into the clay while it’s in a bag. Or, you can add color to a finished piece with a brush
