A Creative Adventure

Engage your child's hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and imagination with Du-Kit clay from Five Star Products. This versatile material opens up a world of colour combinations and artistic possibilities.

What You'll Need:

  • Du-Kit Clay from Five Star Products

  • Patterned serviette

  • Skewers

  • Rolling pin (or cylinder)

  • Wax paper

  • Cord (or string)

  • Knife

  • Elastic


Preparing Du-Kit for Use: Condition the Du-Kit clay by hand to soften it and make it pliable. Break off small pieces and knead them until smooth. Roll the clay into a long snake, fold it in half, twist it together, and roll it into a ball. Repeat this process until the clay is soft and workable.

Step 1: 

Flatten and roll out the Du-Kit clay between waxed paper to prevent sticking. Roll between two skewers to achieve an even thickness. Cut the clay to size and shape.

Step 2: Select a 3-ply serviette and remove the bottom two layers, leaving only the top layer with the pattern. Cut the pattern slightly larger than the clay shape, creating one for each side of the bookmark.


Gently press the patterned serviette onto the clay

Step 3: Gently press the patterned serviette onto the clay, ensuring it adheres smoothly. Place waxed paper over the serviette and rub in a circular motion to eliminate air bubbles. Repeat for the other side.


Step 4:  Use a skewer or circular cutter to make a hole for the cord. Place the bookmark on a tile or baking paper and bake at 130 degrees Celsius for 1 hour.


Step 5:  Once cooled, soak the bookmark in water for half an hour. Gently rub away the paper layer to reveal the transferred pattern.
