Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Mardi Gras Monogram Key Chain CHA Make & Take


Today in the Makin's Clay® Booth #1421 at the Craft and Hobby Association Mega Show in Anaheim, CA, Design Team members Candice Windham, Lisa Haney, Steph Ackerman, Irit Shalom and I will be showing attendees how to create their own Mardi Gras Mask & Monogram Key Chains with Makin's Clay® and Makin's Brand® tools.  If you are at the show, stop by and see their great new products, and make your own Mardi Gras Mask 
& Monogram Key Chain with their Designers! 

Project Supplies:

Makin’s Clay® - Multi-Pack 120g 
Makin’s® Mask Push Mold #39010 
Makin’s® Square 3 Piece Cutter Set #36002
Makin’s® Texture Sheets – Any Patterns  
Makin’s® Alphabet Cutter Set #37001  
Makin’s® Clay Roller 
Makin’s Professional® Tool Kit OR Clay Tool Set 
Makin’s® Cutting Mat 
Key Chain or Key Ring 
Mica Powder

Project Instructions:

Step #1  Roll black clay on cutting mat with roller to approximately 1/8” thick.   

Step #2  Use selected texture sheet to apply texture to rolled clay.


Step #3  Use largest square cutter to cut square from textured clay.  

Step #4  Use clay tool to make hole in one corner of square for key ring or key chain. 


Step #5  Use Mask push mold to mold face from any shade of clay. 

Step #6  Apply light coat of Mica Powder to mask. 


Step #7  Roll complementary shade of clay to approximately 1/8” and apply texture.  Use Alphabet clay cutter to cut monogram.  

Step #8  Mount monogram letter and mask to key chain as desired.  Fresh clay adheres to fresh clay without any additional adhesive.  If needed, moisten with a small amount of water for quick adhesion.  Let dry 24 hours before adding key ring or key chain. 


HINTS:  If clay starts to dry during project, just spritz with water and kneed in fingers until soft again.
             Set aside the ornament to dry overnight or until clay is completely dry.
