Using molds, you can easily create small designs that you can either use by themselves or incorporate them into another product. Push the clay into a mold with your fingers, pull it out and leave to dry by itself. Textures will allow you to create interesting patterns on the surface of the clay. Just lightly press them into a rolled-out clay using a roller. You can then work with such decorated clay as you wish. The textured surface, after the product is dried up, can be further decorated using paints in order to achieve interesting effects.
