Clay Covered Journal

As I was looking for my next protect I found an old journal I was planning on covering in clay. I hadn’t gotten around to it. Mostly because I was afraid of messing it up.

At the time I purchased it I couldn’t find any tutorials on how I should go about doing it. Was it better to bake the clay and cover together? Or should I bake the clay and glue it on after? Thanks to YouTube I was able to find a couple of tutorials and really just get the gist of how I wanted to go about it. Below are the ones I used:

This one was a good  start. She cut out pieces of clay and glued them on.

This was another “glue on” project. A little bit closer to what I was looking for as I wanted to cover the whole thing.

Then I hit the jack pot. This was exactly what I was looking for. She even used the same type of note book! There were no instructions to follow, but she recorded the complete steps  which were very helpful to follow.

Following these tutorials I cam up with my own design.
