Question: can you ever have too many little bowls? You know, the ones that can be used to maybe put some jewellery pieces in, or collect lost buttons (that might eventually make it back onto a shirt), or just leave on the sides because they look pretty. Well, my answer is ‘no’, you can never have too many little bowls, and that’s why I’ve made some more.
At the moment, I’m keeping some of my rings and earrings in them. I have so many pieces that it’s easy to occasionally forget them when they’re all buried together. By dividing my jewellery up into various bowls, I can see what I have and decide what I fancy wearing more quickly.
I’ve used a charcoal paint for these, but of course, you can use any colour you like – neon pink anyone?
The modelling clay I’ve used comes ready made and packaged. It can be dried in the oven, but I’ve found that a little more patience and letting the items dry naturally over night produces nicer results. If you’re interested in making these, read on for the instructions.
here's what you'll need...
- Ready made modelling clay
- A rolling pin
- A dessert bowl (one for each bowl you want to make)
- Cling film
- Lace cutoffs – the more variations, the better
- Paint brush
- Water based paint in the colour of your choice
- Small amount of water in case the clay gets dry
