I am one of the lucky ones that gets to share a new type of craft sensation. It’s called Decoden. Today I am going to share with you Mod Podge Collage Clay. And how you can make a DIY Decoden Embellished Frame.
At first you might feel that Decoden is too much embellishing, but that’s part of the excitement. AND, when you get to work with it like I have recently, you will be hooked. Decoden is the art of decorating anything with trinkets, and “the more the merrier”.
As I have used Mod Podge Collage Clay, I was excited to make my DIY Embellished Frame.
Now, doesn’t that look fun? Let me show you how I made my frame.
I received these Mod Podge products: Collage Clay in Strawberry and Vanilla, Hot Melts, Mod Molds, and Collage Drizzle Paint.
My first step was to make some embellishments with the Hot Melts and the Mod Molds. Using a mini high temp glue gun I filled the molds and waited ten minutes for them to harden. You can also fill your Mod Molds with Collage Clay. Wait 24 hours to dry and pop them right out.
While I was waiting for the Hot Melts, I gathered my trinkets. I used glitter, crystals, shells, starfish, keys, sequins, and a few scrapbook supplies.
Now it was time to start my DIY Embellished Frame. I used the star tip with strawberry collage clay to cover the top of my frame. Making rosettes I was ready to add my embellishments.
I began to add my shells and crystals. Then the real fun started. I remembered “the more, the merrier” while I added my trinkets and embellishments.
I was having so much fun that I decorated a clothes pin to hold my picture. Some glitter and a shell was just the right touch.
Now it was time to let my frame dry. It takes a full 24 hours for the Collage Clay to dry. So, don’t be in a rush to use your Decoden art. Let it dry completely.
I have to admit I was a little nervous about designing an over the top look in my 3D collage clay. But using this new technique was a lot of fun. I KNOW you will enjoy it as well.
Collage Clay is not recommended for children ages 12 and under, and the product is not edible. Small parts are a choking hazard for children.
