Air dry clay is very simple to use and, as the name suggests, it will cure and harden in the air and does not require heating in a kiln or oven. When hardened air dry clay is varnished it is waterproof and ideal for making items like coasters.

Materials Required
  • Air dry clay
  • Craft rolling pin
  • Rubber stamps
  • Paint and clear acrylic varnish

Instructions

To make a special air dry clay coaster, simply roll out a piece of air dry clay to the required thickness (about 1/8" thick will be fine).
  • Cut this to the required size and press a rubber stamp into the surface as required
  • Add any further surface decoration as required
  • Leave this to one side to dry
  • Paint the coaster and finish with a coat of clear varnish
