Use claycrete to make a wall hanging to display nature's treasures!


  • Step 1
    Collect weeds, leaves and stones from nature.

  • Step 2
    Decide how many colors you want to create and portion out claycrete into empty bowls, one bowl for each color. Measure out the water needed for each color separately, according to package directions. Before mixing Claycrete with the pre-measured water, add a few Tablespoons of your chosen Watercolor Magic Liquid Watercolors to the clear water. Wearing gloves, add the colored water to the correct amount of Claycrete.

  • Step 3
    Keeping gloves on, lay out a plastic bag and create a relief design using the Claycrete.

  • Step 4
    Place weeds, leaves and stones into the Claycrete and let dry for 1-2 days.
