How to Make

  1. Make some air dry clay and roll it into a ball. Then press it down onto a flat surface using the palm of your hand to make a flat disk.
  2. Use smaller pieces of clay to create the Queen’s face on the top of the clay disk. Leave to dry over night.
  3. Once the clay has fully dried, paint it in a coat of white paint. Leave to dry.
  4. Once the white paint has dried, paint a coat of gold paint over the top. The white paint will help to make the gold appear brighter.
  5. Cut a strip of white card approximately 1 inch wide and 2.5 inches long.
  6. Use double sided tape to stick three pieces of ribbon to the front of the card strip.
  7. Stick the gold medal to the bottom of the ribbons using PVA glue and leave to dry.
  8. Finally, stick a self-adhesive badge pin to the back of the top of the ribbons.
