Make a Name Plaque from a Flexible Mould

with Sue Heaser

Sculpey Flexible Mold results(see also pages on using Sculpey Flexible Moulds and Layering colours in Sculpey Flexible Moulds)

Sculpey Alphabet moulds can be used to mould letters for children’s name plaques. These have dozens of uses such as for party name place markers or room door plaques. You can also glue them above coat pegs, onto box lids and even onto larger toys such as a toy car ride-on.

Name Plaque

Roll out a sheet of turquoise clay and lay it on a tile. Cut out a rectangle with a wavy cutter. Use the Sculpey Alphabet mould to make the letters of the child’s name and arrange lightly on the rectangle.

Clay cane made by Sue HeaserDecorate with slices cut from polymer clay flower and leaf millefiori canes. Arrange the cane slices onto the plaque around the name. When you are happy with the design, press all the pieces down to secure.

Bake the piece on the tile for about 30 minutes or according to the clay manufacturer’s instructions. Ease it off the tile when cool.

Party Place Name Marker

Use the Sculpey Alphabet mould to make different coloured letters of the child’s name. Mould a party hat and a balloon from the Sculpey Party Time mould (or other pieces of your choice).

Roll out a sheet of yellow clay and lay it on a tile. Cut out a rectangle with a wavy blade and remove the excess clay.

Lay on the child’s name and the moulded pieces. The balloon has a little piece of wire applied for a string (be sure to trap the top of the wire under the balloon to secure it). When you are happy with the arrangement, press the pieces down to secure them.

Bake the piece on the tile for about 30 minutes or according to the clay manufacturer’s instructions. Ease it off the tile when cool.

Experimenting with Finishes

Wedding Place Setting The baked moulded pieces can be painted with acrylic paint. For best results, first de-grease the surface by brushing with alcohol (methylated spirits). You can varnish the pieces for a shiny effect.

Try brushing pieces moulded in black with metallic or Pearl Ex powders before baking for really glittery results.

Use PVA glue to attach the moulded pieces to card or paper. Use superglue to attach the pieces to wood, plastic, magnets, brooch backs or anything metal. Two part epoxy glues also give a very firm bond onto metal, wood or plastic.
