Custom Business Card Case
Dressing up a metal business card case can make it an extremely special possession. Search for plain card holders online and you’ll find many to choose from. My gold tone one came with a calculator inside and can be used to carry credit cards too. I chose clay colors that appeal to me but you could make the same pattern using different colors. Bake the clay right onto the metal case but don’t forget to remove the calculator first!
Before you begin, condition all clay colors. Cutting should be done on wax paper which will allow you to easily rotate the work when necessary.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Setting numbers vary on clay conditioning machines. On my machine the thickest setting is 1 and the thinnest is 9.
step 17 - Turn the case clay side up. Remove the plastic wrap and set the case on a piece of cardboard. Bake it for 30 minutes in a 275 degree oven. Allow the case to cool completely before handling.
To create wider slices, make the rectangular shape in step 13 thicker than .75”.
