neutral clay wall hanging

You will love working with this super cool clay that, once hardened, looks and feels similar to leather. Simply make trendy shape cutouts from clay and connect with jump rings.
Step 1

Slice some clay from each block. Knead and condition until moldable. Blend some of the clay into various shades of neutrals.

Step 2

Use an acrylic roller (or a clay machine) to roll each clay into an even sheet.

Step 3

Use a texture sheet on a couple of areas of the clay sheets.

Step 4

Cut into assorted shapes from both smooth and textured clay. For the grey bar shape, use your straight slicer.

Step 5

Roll two pieces of Ivory clay pieces into 4" [10.2 cm], then twist together.

Step 6

Plan your wall hanging, then use the small stylus tool to create holes in the top and bottom of the shapes. Pierce a hole just at the top of the twisted clay bar.
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 for additional holes.

Step 7

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

Step 8

Cut a 6" [15.2 cm] piece of hemp cord. Fold it in half, thread through the top hole in the top shape, then tie into a lark’s head knot. Tie the cord ends together with an overhand knot.

Step 9

Add a 6mm Copper jump ring to each hole (except the top hole with the hemp cord).

Step 10

Connect each shape by the 6mm jump ring with smaller, 4mm jump rings.
