Hello it is LuLu and welcome to my Creative PaperClay® Link Party Project!
I have been creating these cones for a few years now and have them in colors to match every season. They are super easy to make light weight and will add height to any area in your home that needs a little bit :)
So here we go!
You will need the following:
one paper mache cone
a package of Delight ™ Air dry Modeling Compound
1 paint brush
ribbon and lace
a clay roller
The first step is to apply Gesso to Your paper mache Cone.
Start with a piece of Delight ™ air dry Modeling compound
Roll to approx. 1/16" thickness
Using your scissors cut random heart shapes
Keep repeating the roll out and cut out steps until you have about 12 hearts in varying sizes.
I stop at this point as to not have them dry out.
Take a piece of lace and lay over your hearts
Start rolling with light pressure to get an impression in your hearts. You will have to go over the hearts several times to get all areas of the heart imprinted with the lace pattern.
next take watered down gesso and apply to the back of the heart
You will now start piecing like a puzzle the hearts onto your cone. If you run out of hearts just goo back and repeat Steps 2-3.
a 14" cone took an entire package of Clay ;)
once you have covered your cone start to paint.
There is no need to wait for the Clay to dry.
a watered down wash of Acrylic paint is best and a light touch
leaving the in between areas unpainted continue to paint the hearts all the way around the cone.
Once you are finished painting allow your project to dry
You can embellish the bottom with ribbons, flowers or trinkets :D
