- air dry clay (about 300-400 g)
- plastic placemat
- rolling pin
- a bowl as sample
First, place the air dry clay on the placemat and work it with the rolling pin to get a flat rounded shape (3-4 mm high). You can cut the clay to give it the shape you prefer.
Now cover the inside of a bowl with cellophane and gently place the clay into it. The clay will create folds but that’s what we want to.
Let it dry completely and eventually remove imperfections with sand paper (optional), then paint the inside with golden spray paint and, once dry, the outside with white paint.
Voilà! The final bowl looks so beautiful even if it’s so easy and cheap to make! As I said, I matched it with the other Christmas decorations I had placed around the livingroom, I like how festive it looks thanks to the gold touch. I hope that you liked this DIY air dry clay gold and white painted bowl as much as I do and that you found this tutorial simple and useful.
