Hello…As they always say, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Today we’re going to do a DIY decor project that provides a home to your jewelry. Handmade ring dishes out of clay. Here is an easy and cheap way to make them.
These are the supplies needed to make our marbled ring dishes:
- Oven bake clay in different colors
- Molds ( or oven bowls )
- Rolling pin
- Solid knife( or plastic clay knife )
- Varnish ( or paint & a brush )
I chose these colors : black, white, pink, grey and green glitter.
So….We start by cutting the desired quantity of clay ( Be careful with the dark colors, do not take too much )
Make rolls of 14 cm of each color ( one or more as you like )
Twist the rolls together.
Make a sausage with the twisted rolls, it helps our colors mix and prepares our marble look.
Then we create a ball with the clay.
Flatten the ball with the rolling pin which will define our drawing/marbled clay.
If you don’t like the results, go through the following steps again: cut, roll, ball and flatten.
Cut out your shape ( here around the mold ).
Then place the cut in our mold, which will slightly raise the edges and form a small dish.
I wanted to create two dishes so I did all of this twice.
Put it in the oven.
( Temperature and time according to what is stated on the package of the dough you bought)
Remove from the oven and wait until it cools before removing the dishes from the molds.
Put varnish on the edges of your dishes ( or paint them ).
Once the varnish dries, your cups are ready to use 🙂
If you want a brighter and/or stronger look, you can varnish them.
You can use these dishes for any small items really. Jewelry is just one of them!
So, what do you say ?
