DIY Ring Holders | how to make Air-dry clay ring holders | by 

Last year sometime in September 2015. I found a new passion. It was creating with AIR-Dry Clay. Ever since my clay discovery. I've been hooked! One day I was creating a few clay dishes and was left with a few lumps of clay. Too small for me to make anymore clay dishes. I sat on my work stool, wondering what to make with my left-over clay? I began to roll a small lump of clay in-between my hands. When a finger-like shape appeared -CRAZY RIGHT! I just went with it and made Kooky Clay Fingers.

1. Roll your clay into a finger-like shape or any shape you prefer.

2. Sculpt into a finger (why not one that looks like your own) add a nail shape using a tooth pick.

3. Let Dry for 1-2 days

4. Add your flesh tones and nail colors using Acrylic Paint (let dry for about 1 hour). 

5. For the last step I used Americana Triple Thick Gloss Glaze just on the nails to make it resemble real nail polish (let dry for one 1 hour).

and that's it, you are all done.
