Who knew clay could be so fun? Every since I decided to buy some clay and make this DIY Jewelry tray, I have been itching to use it again.
It hit my one day while staring at my fridge trying to decide what to make for dinner. Magnets! I could totally make some cute magnets. So a DIY was born. Geometric Clay Magnets.
- Polymer Clay
- A craft knife
- Paint Brushes
- Magnetic Sticky Stripes
- Super Glue (maybe)
I took a lump of the clay and made a small cube about the size an inch. With the knife, I began to make cuts all along the edges to give it a nice geometric shape. Smooth out the edges and sides to get ride of the cut marks if you need to.
After I made a few, I stuck them in the oven at 275 degrees for 30 minutes.
Wait for them to cool before you start painting.
I wanted them to have a unique look, so when I did start painting, I choose different sides to keep in the shape of the geometric idea.
Wait till they dry before you place the magnets on each piece. Cut the magnet strip to fit the side you want and place the sticky part to the clay piece, if they don’t stick, use some super glue to make it stick.
