DIY Marbled Ring Dish #tellmetuesdayblog
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)
Method

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.
