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

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

4) Optional: use a cheese cutter to cut around the stamp to make a more interesting design.

5) Allow to dry thoroughly. The PLUS Clay 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.

6) Enjoy your new stamp! It can be used on all other air dry clay to make a unique impression!
