For the small hand mirrors you will need:
3” round mirror
Cernit Phthalate free clay in Black 2.2 ounce pkg
Brilliant Gold and Silver Pearl EX
Victorian flexible push mold
Clay dedicated Pasta Machine
All links above take you to my husband's store Clay Factory and to the page where the supply highlighted can be seen and purchased. Or you can visit the Clay Factory site a http://www.clayfactory.net/
2. Roll out in your pasta machine on a thinner setting than the handled mirror, I used the 3rd thickest setting.
Put a thin layer of glue on the back of the mirror, let dry completely.
Place the back of the mirror on the sheet of clay.
3. Press the mirror down firmly.
4. Trim around the mirror with your craft knife leaving a 1/8” allowance
Press out all the air bubbles, you will be able to see them.
5. Press the clay up around the edges of the mirror.
6. Trim off the excess with your clay blade.
8. Cut a strip ¼” wide and long enough to go around the outside of the mirror.
Cut one end of the strip at an angle.
Press the strip on to the outside of the mirror attaching it to the clay on the outside edge.
9. Trim the end that’s left with your craft blade and butt the edges together.
Smooth your seams gently with your finger.
10. Mold little pieces of the Victorian mold and place on the strip.
Here you can see that I am not molding whole pieces, just parts of them, I am using ¼” balls of black in the mold
Place the mirror into the bag and shake the powder onto the clay around the mirror, again you will get powder on the mirror but you will be able to wash it off after you bake it
13. Bake in a preheat 275 degree oven for 30 minutes
14. Shut off the oven and let cool
Paint with Pearl-ex varnish, let dry and place back in a preheated 200-degree oven for 15 minutes, shut off oven and let cool
Place into a little bag and this little beauty is ready to give as a gift or go right into your own purse. Wouldn’t this make a great bridesmaid’s gift???
