Charming clay medallions for seating guests


In order for the wedding to go according to plan, you need to think over every little thing in advance, including all the necessary wedding accessories. One of the important points in organizing a wedding is seating guests. It is no secret that guests are best accommodated according to their interests: youth with youth, adults with adults. Guests need good company, because at the table they will not be able to communicate with the main heroes of the occasion - the bride and groom. That is why it is worthwhile to draw up a clear seating plan in advance, taking into account the family ties and interests of the guests.

Next, it is important to write out the names of all the guests, which are useful for creating seating cards. In our master class we will be more modern, and instead of cards we will use medallions that can also be used as bonbonnieres.

On the wedding portal you can read about how to mold unusual and stylish medallions from artistic clay. Modeling is a very exciting experience. Moreover, modeling is very beneficial for health, because you have the opportunity to stretch the muscles of the hands, which improves blood circulation. You can also use special stamps with letters to create personalized medallions. Pass a rope or ribbon through the hole so that the medallion can be hung on a glass.

Color mixing palette

First, divide the white piece of clay into several equal rectangles. Form a ball from each rectangle. Do the same with blue clay, but make smaller balls. You can also create more shades - the color depends on the amount of blue that you mix with white.
