Paper Clay Art Projects

Last summer, while doing some cleaning of our stuff, I found an art kit in one of the boxes we shipped from Riyadh when we came back to the Philippines. It was a paper clay art kit by JNBM, which I bought from Market! Market! Taguig more than 3 or 4 years ago.

The kit included an illustration board with a picture on it (outline only), 2 sticks and about 10 colors of paper clay. It is rather easy to do this art project but you need to be patient because it takes time. It’s just like coloring a picture but you’re using paper clay instead of crayons or color pencils to do it. So, just get some paper clay using the 2 sticks and put it on a spot of the picture where you want it to be. Be sure that the paper clay does not cover any of the black or blue outline and then you can prick the clay to spread it, let it stick and give it its unique texture when it dries up.

When Kristel saw the kit, she said that she wanted to do it. The problem is, the paper clay was already dry so I had to buy a new set of paper clay. The cost is P15 per color. Instead of Kristel only who did the project, everyone in the family helped except daddy. I had to do more of the difficult parts. Here is the finished project.

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord - Paper Clay Art Project #1


Since we still have a lot of the paper clay leftover, I told my kids that we will make another one. But this time, I asked my son to draw on an illustration board the verse ” Love is patient, love is kind.” Then, we worked on adding the paper clay on it. This is what the second paper clay art project looks like.

Love is patient, love is kind - Paper Clay Art Project #2

Now, the only thing I have to do is have them framed and hang them on the wall.

Do you like this art project? You can see more beautiful paper clay art creations at JNBM’s facebook page.  If you would like to buy their art kit, they have stores at Market! Market! and SM Megamall. Just check out from their page where their other stores are located.

By the way, I forgot to mention that JNBM is open for franchising. So, if it’s not available in your area or country, perhaps you can introduce it as a business. I just remembered this after reading one comment.

I always see those paper clays at the mall. I was wondering naman if I will purchase those kinds, where will I display them. We have this huge hauling problem in the house that we have a lot of stuff to dispose so as much as I want to, pass muna.

You don’t have to buy if you don’t find any need for it. I don’t have many decors for our home. I prefer to put pictures or DIY art projects on our walls.

But it’s so tempting as they are almost on 70% off on the mall when I saw them before. Oh the impulsive in me always says that it’s on sale! Haha..

I remembered my elementary days… I had so much fun doing different crafts for our project! This is a good way to keep them busy and develop their artistic side too

Paper clay. That is something new to me. Sounds interesting. Btw, the words are inspiring.

My daughter chose the bible verse for the second project.

This is interesting and good activity for kids. I like your works, so colorful.

Thanks. Medyo time consuming din lang sya. Saka pag medyo matanda na pala, masakit din sa fingers.

I must say, you stored it well! I haven’t done anything artsy lately maybe time to explore getting crafty again. IT is a good gist for Christmas

Very nice wall art that could be! I actually haven’t seen or used a paper clay before.. I guess it is like a thin clay perhaps?

It’s not really like clay or play-doh we know. I think it’s made of mashed paper with thin liquid glue.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice. Image taken from http://health.vic.gov.au/headlice/ When we came back to the Philipines , I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
