How To Work With PaperClay and Wood

Hi, today I want to share with you how I get Creative Paperclay® modelling material to adhere to a vertical wooden surface.  My trick is actually pretty simple, I just brush on a generous coat of watered down tacky glue before I lay the clay sheets down.  When I apply the clay to the wood I apply pressure carefully, and I try to wrap the clay around any sharp edges and overlap the next layer of clay.

Here are some examples of how I have done this in past projects:

                                                    (Applying a 50/50 water glue coat)


                                               (Overlapping clay around corners and edges)

I hope that you find this tip useful and have fun working with clays!  Thanks for stopping by.
