  • Step 1Decide which animal cut-out you will use for your design and then gently attach it to the middle of your frame with glue.
  • Step 2Begin rolling small sphere shapes from Magiclay. We mixed some of the colours together to create an orange and a brown.
  • Don’t roll too many at a time as they dry out quickly and they will not stick to each other.
  • Step 4Begin to attach your small spheres to your picture.
  • Step 5Follow your design to create a beautiful Aboriginal-inspired work of art.
  • Step 6Continue to add small spheres of Magiclay until you have completely filled in your design. Set aside to dry for at least 24 hours.
  • You may like to use paint or collage to add colour to your frame. You could also add more Magiclay spheres or just leave it plain.
