Agate has become a very popular part of decorating this year. I haven’t gotten on the band wagon due to not finding the wagon at a price I could swallow.
You know where this is going, right? I decided to try and make my own out of polymer clay!
First step was to pick my colors-
Second Step was cut out the shapes I wanted the Agate to resemble out of foam board.
Then cut out tabs so that they can be free standing.
The third step was to cut all of the clay in half and then flatten each color out and pile them up. Then roll the stack like a burrito and cut that into halves.
Flatten those out and then cut one in half- this will be the separation of the two ends.
Follow instructions on your clay and bake as directed. Mine was 300 Degrees for 10 minutes. I then let dry and decided I wanted them to have a more aged look.
I wiped on some dark wax and quickly wiped it off and then painted some navy craft paint around the edges and outlined some of the spots to show delineation.
Are they perfect- I don’t know- but agate isn’t perfect either- so I am pleased:)
Now just wondering what else I can make with clay!
Hope you have a wonderful day!!
