How to do a polymer clay washi tape style amp for your phone - lifehack!

I was looking on Pinterest and saw this, it's a toilet paper roll and washi tape to make a holder.

But then I remembered that if you put a phone in a cup you can create a sort of "amp" for it. I've done it during art classes in a group setting and it creates nice background music. So why not convert an aluminum can into a holder AND amp for your phone? So that's what I did. Inspired by a Pin... watch how I did it!

How to create polymer clay and recessed metal leaf stenciled design

Learn this easy polymer clay and stenciling technique. You will keep people guessing how you made it! All you need is some metal leaf a blade and a stencil and you can create this unique look.

I am all about experimenting and this came about in one of my early morning experimental sessions. I wanted to find a way to have the metal leaf in the outline of the design and this worked perfectly! It looks like its so hard and time consuming to create but its really easy. Hope you will give it a shot!
