How to make a DIY Clay knot
step-by-step instructions for making knot decor out of clay.
Total time: 1 day
shape Clay into long rolls
You may want to place a piece of parchment paper down first to avoid stains on your counters. Roll the clay between your hands to warm it up a bit so it’s easier to mold. Then, shape it into a long roll. Repeat this step a second time so you have two equal rolls of clay. My pieces were about 12 inches long each. Put both rolls together as shown in the photo.
Form a Knot
Carefully form a knot with these two cylinders together. It took me three tries until I got it exactly how I wanted it. Cut the ends of the knot off where you see fit.
Smooth out Cracks and air dry
Use a bit of water on your fingertips, and smooth out cracks and blemishes on the clay knot. Make sure you don’t combine the two cylinders – you want to see the double knot shape. Once you are satisfied – set your clay knot somewhere to dry. It will take at least 24 hrs depending on how big your knot is – mine actually took 72 hours to fully dry.
Spray Paint and let Dry
Spray paint your clay knot any color you want, or you can just leave it the same color as the clay. I chose to use a stone effect spray paint and then covered this with white paint. I wanted this clay knot to look like stone! Allow the paint to dry and coat with a clear acrylic spray.
