Nothing beats cute trays in your kitchen. Some of them are quiet expensive to buy so we will try to DIY one.
Faux Terrracotta Egg Tray | Airdry Clay Craft
I love the color of natural clay, Terracotta to be exact. I have a brown acrylic that I have not used for my projects so I added it with my clay mixture. I found this coloring technique easier and less mess.
Since I am trying to achieve a solid color, I added a lot.
Once my mixture is done I knead it until it does not stick to my finger. I added Vaseline on the side of our egg packaging to make sure our clay would not stick.
We will be using a clay packaging here as out mold.
Cut the top and the middle part of it for our clay to fit well.
Knead and flatten your clay according to the size of your packaging.
Gently press the clay to the mold making sure it won't create a hole. But if it does happen, you can cover it with your excess clay.
I wanted to create texture so I cut out a small piece of sponge and dab it to the surface.
I left it overnight to make sure it's fully dried and easier to remove from the mold.
Our faux terracotta egg tray is done 🙂
