Seasonal License Plate Frame
While this license plate frame has Halloween bats, a haunted house, tree and a special message, I can’t help but think of how many different ways you could add your own sentiment for any holiday or occasion. Christmas, Valentine’s day, July 4th, anytime you want to change your frame to suit the occasion you can do it easily and inexpensively with clay. I glued my clay elements on my frame because this one is plastic. My next frame will be metal which will allow me to arrange the clay directly on the frame and bake it in the oven.
Before you begin, condition clay. Cutting should be done on plastic film, which will allow you to easily rotate or lift off 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 9 - Bake the bats, the house, the tree and the message strip in a 275 degree oven for 30 minutes. Allow to cool completely before handling.
