Since we're on the topic of signs, I though I'd share this project with you as well! A few months ago just after I had posted the project showing how to make pictures with modeling clay, here, I was thinking how fun it might be to make signs from modeling clay. Just an hour or so later after that thought crossed my mind, my daughter arrived home from school with none other than signs made from modeling clay! I honestly was in shock, but happy to know that I'm somehow in sync with what is going on in my daughter's life.
Oh, and in case you're wondering, these signs are written in Hebrew script lettering. the top one says "mamad room", which in our house is the toy room, and the second sign says "children's room." Isn't that sweet?
- modeling clay (plastalena)
- white glue or modge podge
- thick cardboard or even pieces of wood
- Make shapes from modeling clay and affix to surface with white glue or modge podge
- Cover entire surface with clay shapes or thin snake-like strips.
- Form letters from snake-like strips and affix with white glue or modge podge.
- Using a paint brush cover entire surface with at least one coat of white glue or modge podge.
- Set aside to dry for 24 hours.
- Frame your creations in simple frames from the dollar store (plan ahead and cut cardboard base to fit frame), or hang with a decorative ribbon.
