This is a project from “Crafty Chica Collection” book – what you do is paint small paper mache boxes and then line them with air dry clay. You then use rubber stamps and press on the clay. Let them harden and then use your finger to rub paint over the embossed areas. I used pretty metallics. For some areas, you’ll have to remove the clay after it hardens and then glue it down. I then covered them with a high gloss varnish. It’s all about the shine, baby!
