Rubber Stamped Tiles with Apoxie Sculpt

By Carmi Cimicata
 
Tools: Rubber stamps, x-acto knife, non-stick work surface, clear ink
Materials:  Apoxie Sculpt, Gilder's Paste
 
I wanted to make some interesting clay tiles using one of the rubber stamps in my collection.
 
  I made a batch of black Apoxie Sculpt and flattened it onto a non stick work surface. (you can work on waxed paper too)  I used a watermark ink pad (which is a clear ink) to condition my rubber stamp.  I knew I would be pressing the rubber into the Apoxie Sculpt…and needed to be sure I could pull it away without stretching or distorting the impressed image in the clay.
 
Success!  I managed to pull away my rubber stamp!  The rubber stamp is very detailed and I was not sure how much of the image would be impressed into the clay.
 
I used an x-acto knife to slice all the tile sections at this point.  This way the clay would cure and already be cut into 9 different sections.
 
Here they are after being left alone overnight.
 
I applied a layer of Gilders Paste to each tile to make the images pop again!
To use these tiles as pendants or bracelet sections, you can punch holes before the clay hardens.
