oven bake clay feathers


Last year I shared how to make a canvas feather necklace and now that I have my own lovely rubber stamps made from my feather drawings, I decided to create another version of a this necklace using my stamps- this time with oven bake clay.

There are all kinds of different ways to use rubber stamps but I think one of my favorites is with clay.

I rolled out white oven bake clay and then pressed the stamp into the clay to make an imprint. I trimmed the around the feather, poked a hole in the end and baked the feathers in the oven. They are BEAUTIFUL plain and white but I wanted to add a little color to mine.


Using acylic paint, I painted over the top of the clay feather.


While the paint was still wet, I wiped a damp paper towel over the surface to remove the paint, leaving pigment in the grooves of the feather.


I added a few little details with paint.


Last, I added a jump ring and chain.

  4. I have a set of your feather stamps, and this is a fantastic way to use them! I'll have to scrounge around to see if I have any white clay on hand. Thanks for sharing such a great idea!

  11. Hello! I’ve just spent a lovely hour reading lots of your postings - you make beautiful things! I’m eager to try some clay projects. I have bought some Fimo Soft Polymer Modelling Moulding Clay, some lovely looking Adirondack Alcohol Inks and a jar of Fimo Polymer Clay Water Based Gloss Varnish. I am now officially one of those “all the gear and no idea” girls :)
    Do you have any experience with inks/varnish on poly clay? I'm wondering when I make my item if I should bake/paint/varnish in that order? Or should I paint/bake/varnish… bake/varnish/paint/varnish….?! Any help would be hugely appreciated!
