clay so inks don't seep under.

Use the last 2 colors of chalk inks to stamp images on the surface of
the clay. Try not to push the stamp in too deep.
Use the black ink to stamp the text over the entire sheet.
Brush liquid clay onto the surface of the black clay sheet. Layer the
inked sheet onto the black sheet. This can be a bit tricky, because the
ink will still be wet. Baking them wet seems to give the best results.
Find an interesting area of the sheet and use the shape cutter to cut
