Yes! Here we are back at it again with another Clay Project.
Incase for some reason you missed my last week project, hop on over to see these beautiful Confetti Resin Coaster and these Festive Resin Coasters which are just the perfect gift idea or home decor for the upcoming holidays.
I don’t know about you but I like to personalize my Fridge with colorful magnets because let’s be real who can we deal with a boring stainless steel finish refrigerator all day, everyday!
Even though I chose the Aztec Pattern for this project which is personally my favorite pattern out there, do check out my Southwestern Table, Kilim Bench Makeover and Aztec Inspired Lamp Makeover to see my obsession.
Lets move on to todays project now Shall We.
Materials Needed To Create Magnets
So with all my clay projects the clay that I use is called Oven Bake Clay. It works perfectly and gives amazing results every single time. You should check out my Marbled Clay Bowls and Flower Coasters for more inspiration.
The colors that I chose for this project were Turquoise, Blue, Purple and Pink.
Start by taking a small piece of the clay, almost the size of a Quarter.
Roll all the clay pieces into perfect balls.
After that use a bottle or any flat even surface to flatten out the balls into a round shape.
Do it to all the other four.
Then place your pieces onto a baking tray and bake at 275F for 15 minutes.
When the clay has completely cooled that is when you go in with the White Acrylic Paint and create your pattern. I chose an Aztec image by a quick google search and tried recreating the Aztec Pattern.
At this point you can customize the magnet the way you want, you could paint your initials, a quote etc
It didn’t take me long since the surface area to cover with the pattern wasn’t that big to begin with.
Let it dry.
The last step is to use Elmers glue to apply the pieces of magnetic sheet on to the backside.
Let them dry completely before you proceed to use it on the fridge.
And there you have it.
The last step is optional but you could use Sculpey Glaze to give your magnets a subtle sheen.
Which color is your favorite.
If you liked this project then be sure to Pin it for later.
