- Craft Smart® Oven-bake Clay – Red
- ArtMinds™ Clay Gun
- ArtMinds™ Clay Roller
- Copy Paper
Roll the copy paper into a cone. Staple or tape cone so it holds its shape.
Condition clay and load into the ArtMinds™ Clay Gun with the half circle disc installed. Extrude a piece of clay at least 12" long. You may use solid colors or mixes, such as red and white.
Starting at the thin end of the cone, wrap the extruded piece of clay around the cone. Form a closed loop at the top.
Bake ornament on the paper cone as directed on the package. Allow to cool before hanging on your tree.
Condition all clay by kneading until it is soft and smooth. Flatten each piece to 1/8" thickness using the ArtMinds™ Clay Roller. Fold sheet in half and repeat. Continue until clay is soft and pliable.
If kneading by hand, condition light colors first and clean hands with baby wipes between colors.
