Step 1:

Pull or cut a piece of PLUS Air Dry Clay off about the size of a walnut. Without over-working the clay, shape the clay into a ball by rolling in between hands.

Step 2:

Begin forming the handle of the stamp by grasping ball in the middle and pulling and rolling a handle or doorknob shape.

Step 3:

Tap the ball end of the stamp lightly on a flat surface to make the stamp work space.

Step 4:

Take a pencil and make a design in the clay that is deep enough to leave a good impression. At this point, do not moisten either piece as this will make it very hard to remove the pressed in object.

Step 5:

(Optional) Use a cheese cutter to cut around the stamp to make a more interesting design.

Step 6:

Allow to dry thoroughly. The PLUS Air Dry Clay will become lighter in color and will not be cool to the touch. This may take a day or two. Spray the stamp with clear acrylic spray to make it water resistant. Let it dry and then spray lightly with a cooking spray for easy release.
