Make Your Own Custom Textured Mats

27 Aug

Quickly make your own texture mat using craft foam and scissors. Not only is it available in bright colors, but you can purchase it with an adhesive backing that works great for making quick custom texture mats for clay.

Purchase craft foam with an adhesive back.  It is available at many hobby and craft stores, as well as discount stores.

Cut shapes out of one of the sheets of the peel and stick foam.Image

Create a custom design by placing your cut-outs onto another sheet of craft foam.  Here I have used two levels of peel and stick foam (white and yellow) and attached them to regular craft foam (red).

Place the texture mat face down on a slab and use your rolling pin to transfer the relief pattern.
