As you may or may not know, I am the official "cat lady" here at the blog. I'm mostly the designated CL because (a.) I'm the only one around here that actually has cats, and (b.) it's totally true. My vet recently sent my cat Charlie a birthday card, and instead of thinking, "Cat birthday card? So dumb!" I thought, "There's obviously been a huge mistake, her birthday isn't until next month! I'll save it for her..." Being the only cat person, I'm usually alerted to any adorable cat-related cuteness, and recently Elsie showed me some precious ceramic cat face coasters that I just about died for. One of the cats had a black and white pattern painted on it that made him look just like a cat I had growing up named Jade (the sweetest Tuxedo cat you'd ever meet), and I thought I should recreate the kitty coaster idea and make them look like my personal favorite felines instead (Jade and my current kitties Mac and Charlie). So fun!
Supplies:-oven bake clay -kitty coaster template�(right click to download)-X-Acto and plastic clay knives-nonstick mat and rolling pin-acrylic paint-clay sealer
1. Roll out some clay that is at least 5" X 6" big and about 1/4" thick (I use acrylic rulers on either side that are the same height so my clay has an even thickness).
