Christmas gift wrap ideas using Sculpey polymer clay to make Christmas ornaments and accented with buttons. The projects brought to you today are part of a Sculpey ornament hop. I chose to make my ornaments using a mold and add them to my homemade wrapping paper.
To use a mold you simply condition the clay. Press the clay into the mold and remove for baking. Some molds need to be dusted with cornstarch or a mold release. Others you can bake in directly. Since I made 16 ornaments I made mine and and baked them all at one time.
I used three blocks of clay and made a ton of ornaments okay maybe not a ton, but I did make 16.
The mold is from Krafty Lady Molds. They are super fantastic and work great.
I mixed the colors together to get a wide variety of one shade to create almost an ombre effect. I painted all my wrapping paper and wanted to make unique toppers too.
