Foil Spray Finish for Creative Paperclay®

Krylon Metallic Foil Spray
Polymer Medium
Dimensional Paint (for dots)
Burnt Umber Paint

I added dots with dimensional paint in a bottle. Any brand will work. This was added so I could see how foil works with texture. When the dots dried, I coated the dog shape with polymer medium in order to seal the surface. The foil will absorb into the clay if it is not sealed and loses the foil look.
