You will need:
- Soft modelling clay (I used Fimo) in white (120g) and dark blue (20g)
- Rolling pin
- Sharp knife
- Small oven safe bowl
- Gold high-gloss acrylic enamel paint and Fimo glaze (optional)
Step 1: Firstly, make sure all of your tools, working surfaces and hands are very clean. The white Fimo will pick up even the slightest specs of dirt.
Step 2: Roll your white and blue Fimo into 2 separate balls, then place the blue onto of the white. Gently start working the blue into the white.
Step 3: Once there are no lumpy bits of blue work and twist the clay into a cigar shape about 15cm long.
Step 4: Take your rolling pin (or other round object such as a large jar) and roll the clay into a flat pancake.
Step 5: Take your bowl onto of the clay and carefully cut out a circular shape.
Step 6: Gently peel your circular shape off your working surface and place into the bowl, carefully working the clay into the curves.
Step 7: Place into the oven and bale as per your clay’s interactions (in my case 150C for 15 minutes).
Step 8: Remove bowl from oven and allow to cool before carefully removing the clay dish.
Optional: there are glazes readily available for Fimo, however I left mine unsealed. If you would like a little more bling on your bowl, paint the rim with gold high-gloss acrylic enamel paint.
