geometric clay wall art

You will love working with this super cool clay that, once hardened, looks and feels similar to leather. Cut clay into trendy shapes; then place on parchment paper. Bake in the oven for a maximum of 30 minutes at 265°F (130°C).
Step 1

Slice a piece of clay from each block.

Step 2

Knead and condition until moldable.

Step 3

For the mosaic pieces, roll the desired clay into individual snake-like shapes, then use your straight blade slicer to cut small, uneven shape pieces.
TIP: Be very careful! This blade is sharp!

Step 4

Use an acrylic roller (or a clay machine) to roll Sahara clay into an even sheet. Push uneven clay pieces into the sheet; then roll the sheet until it is even and a little less than ¼" [.6 cm] thick.

Step 5

Roll out additional sheets of clay in each color you’d like in your wall hanging.

Step 6

Cut clay with different shapes and sizes of clay cutters and/or use your straight blade slicer to make rectangles. Also, use a flexible texture sheet to add a design to the Silver clay, then cut shapes.

Step 7

Use the small stylus tool to create a hole in the top and bottom of the shapes.
TIP: When planning out your wall hanging, remember that the shape at the bottom of each strand would only have a hole pierced at the top. If you forgot a hole once baked, use a steel hole punch to additional holes.

Step 8

Bake the shapes for 30 minutes at 265°F (130°C). Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Step 9

Add a 7mm jump ring to each hole you created in Step 7.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 10

Lay out the shapes into three strands, with the middle strand a little longer then the two outer ones. Connect the 7mm jump rings at the top of each shape to each other with a 10mm jump ring, as shown.

Step 11

At the top of the two outer strands, add a 10mm jump ring to the top of the 7mm (added in Step 10) and then another 7mm jump ring to the 10mm.

Step 12

Twist three eye screws across the bottom of your stick, evenly spaced, and two across the top, also evenly spaced.

Step 13

Hang your strands from the eye screws across the bottom with the 7mm jump rings attached at the top of each strand.

Step 14

Attach 7mm and 10mm jump rings to each other to make a hanger, then attach each end to the screw eyes on the top of your stick.
