Place a ball of clay on your sheet of canvas or on a clean table.
Roll the clay into a flat slab.
Cut the clay into your desired shape.
Pinch the sides for an organic feel, smoothing with a sponge.
Insert a paintbrush tip at the top, and create a clean hole that you will later put your ribbon through.
Paint the surface white, and express your emotions in blue.
Let paint and clay dry overnight.
Apply a thin mod podge layer for a sheen and seal.
Add a ribbon and hang your personalized piece anywhere in your home! I decided to hang mine in my studio space!
