1 Mold the design

Use a home stamp-making kit to create the seahorse stamp, or, if you prefer, purchase a similarly sized stamp to create the mold. Brush olive oil onto the mold, making sure to reach into all of the indentations. Roll a 12-gram lump of pmc3 to a 4-card thickness oval sheet on a ceramic tile. (See page 26). Rub a little olive oil on the clay surface and press clay into the mold. Lift clay and place on tile.

2 Cut out the shape

Cut around the seahorse shape with a lightly oiled craft blade knife, working carefully but quickly. Immediately place the excess clay back into its original airtight container. Use a knitting needle to make a hole V\6n (2mm) from the top and bottom center points and allow the project to dry completely. Carefully sand any rough edges or sharp points and wipe away dust.
