This clay owl coaster tutorial post is a little special to me. This is the first post by a guest contributor on this site… and who is this guest contributor you ask?! Just like me, he has a deep interest in arts and crafts and has been a closet artist for long. My continuous nagging has finally brought one of his art projects to light… our latest guest contributor – my dearest husband !!
Clay owl coaster tutorial:
The below template was designed in Photoshop and this was used as the outline for the coaster. The dimensions of the coaster was kept a little big upon my request.
Make a ball with the air dry clay – take enough clay for the coaster based on its size and thickness.
Using a rolling pin, flatten the clay ball evenly.
Print out the template, place it on the flattened clay and cut out along the outline.
Smooth-en uneven edges if required.
Now draw the outline for painting. A thin outline has been drawn using pencil.
Using black acrylic paint, fill inside the outline drawn.
Along the thick black outline, a thin outline is drawn using white acrylic color.
A few more lines have been drawn for the owl’s wings to make it look much more complete.
..And a pattern has been drawn within the outer circles as shown.
Once the paint is dry, apply two coats of matte finish varnish and allow it to dry.
The coaster is done!
