Step 1 : Condition the clay by kneading to get it more soft and moldable. Mix the two color by using this great technique that I found on The Felted Fox Blog.

Step 2 : Use a glass bottle or a rolling pin to flatten the ball of clay. The flattened has to be thick so it will be heavy enough to support the photographs. Cut le little mountains forms.

Step 3 : Cut the forms almost in two, so that you place de the photo.

Step 4 : Flattened the bottom by pressing the mountain onto a flat surface.

Step 5 : Bake the mountains, placed on aluminium foil, according to the manufacturer’s directions. Allow them to cool completely.
