I've seen simple bowls made from polymer clay, and I've been wanting to try it myself.  This is the cute little ring dish I made for myself yesterday:


I did a step-by-step walkthrough on my blog, but the basics are:  roll out the clay, stamp a design, cut out a circle, add the clay heart to the center, press it onto an upturned oven-proof bowl, and bake.  After baking, I made a twist of the two colors of clay for the rim, pressed it in place, and baked it again.


To make it nice and shiny, I used a thin coat of Varithane polyurithane varnish.  It dries quickly, so I only had to wait an hour after varnishing the back before I could varnish the front.

I made this ring bowl first for a partner in the Craft This Tote Round 2 swap; here's hers:


I love this dish, and there are a lot of other things you could do with it.  Next time, instead of the heart or flower, I want to stamp an inked leaf impression onto a light-colored circle for the center detail.  I also want to come up with a more delicate-looking edge for the next dish.  Any ideas?

These are cute little bowls!  I looked at your blog and I was wondering where you got your texture stamps.  I love them!  And the braid on your bowls is amazing!  Mine never turns out that good.

I think I got the texture stamps at Michael's, but I recently looked at the Sculpey website and I think you can order them there--or find links to stores where you can order them.  I want to get a bigger variety!
