I think the reason I am on such a DIY clay project kick these days is because of these Cactus Clay Ring Holders I recently made. The minute I saw that I could create these beautiful clay Ring Holders using just clay I was Sold.

I mean look at how cute these look and they are literally the perfect summer project!

Materials needed for this project

Oven Bake Clay (this is the one I bought)

DecoArt Extreme Sheen

PaintBrushes

Baking Tray

The key to getting this beautiful glossy finish is because of DecoArt’s new Extreme Sheen paint line. The second I saw there new collection it had my name written all over it.

For this specific project I used the color Aquamarine and 24K Gold.

Since I knew I had to paint over the clay in the end hence I went with these neutral clay colors which I wouldn’t use in any other projects just as is (you know saving those beautiful colors for some other DIY Projects that you guys will see in the future)

And if we are being honest I am not at all the greatest sculptor on the planet but if I can create a cactus you guys can as well.

I first rolled out a a thick cylindrical cone which was going to be the main part of the cactus. For the “branches” of the cactus I created medium sized rolls but added a U bend in it.

Attaching the cactus “branches” onto the main part is also a really easy step, first you decided where you want to place each branch then you mould the clay slowly around the branches until they are firmly attached. Do smooth out any bumps.

I also created a mini little base for the cactus.

Since the clay wasn’t perfect looking, I kept with that theme and made the base rustic and a bit uneven as well.

This was another cactus ring holder I made with a different colored clay combination.

Let it air dry for a few hours then place it on a baking sheet and bake at 275F for 15minutes.

Then comes the fun part, playing around with color.

I used the Aquamarine shade on the cactus and the underside of the base.

The Gold I used on the inside of the base  as well as to make the prickly needles.

The beautiful extreme sheen paint is such a delight to work with, the brown clay was instantly transformed.

I let it dry before I went in and added the Gold colored “prickly needles”.

With a really thin tip brush I made the tiny dots all around the cactus. Adding such a small little detail really made it into a realistic looking cactus.

Since I loved how this turned out I ended up creating two prism shaped ring holders.

I painted one completely Gold and the other half gold with dots.

I mean honestly how stinking cute did these turn out!

My brain is on a roll with ideas on how I can make these ring holders in a million different colors.
