Clay Tags - Faux Leather


I made these clay tags using my new mini oven - another of my christmas presents.  I made the colour by mixing light brown, white and black clays together.  Stamped into the clay but didn't really know how much pressure to put on which is why some impressions are better than others.  Using some of my metal tools I made marks in the clay to give the impression of stitches.  I made the hole using a straw.  Once baked I added black acrylic paint and wiped most of it off.  I applied different colours of metal paint and rub n buff to some of the tags.  Added string to finish.
