Shamrock Clay Essential Oil Diffuser
from Patti Makes
Use stamps and air dry clay to make a car diffuser, diffuser necklaces, ornaments, magnets
… imagine all the possibilities!!
You’ll need air dry clay like this. Air dry clay is a natural earth clay which air-dries to a hard solid. You can find it here as well as at Walmart, Michaels, JoAnn’s, and other craft stores. Prices will vary; it should cost less than $5 for a container like this.
You can buy air dry clay in white and then color it to any color you want using just about anything soluble! You can use paints…craft paints, artist acrylics, or oils paints. You can use cake colorants (not food coloring) that are made in paste and gel form and also the ‘pearl dust‘. Artist pastels, crushed into a powder and mixed into the clay will make soft, pastel colors. You can also use the inks and chalks popular for scrapbooking and rubber stamping. There are also colorants available that are specially made for tinting air-dry clay and cold porcelain, but these don’t seem to be readily available in USA (yet).
Once you have the air dry clay colored how you want it, then roll it out, stamp it uses stamps like those below, and cut it out (a cookie cutter makes this really easy and gives professional looking edges). If you’re making a diffuser necklace or ornament, punch a small hole for the cord that will be used to hang it. Then let it dry. That’s it! Super easy and a fun craft to do with kids!!
