Happy Labor Day! I hope everyone is enjoying a day off from work! I'm going to spend it grilling with my family and John's. It should be a great time!
I want to share with you a little project I did yesterday. I have been looking for a way to prettify my jewelry storage, and so I made a jewelry dish out of Sculpey clay. I used to make Christmas ornaments every year out of Sculpey and I had bunches of extra packages lying around. I found a little tutorial for jewelry dishes out of Sculpey which I modified to fit the materials I had around the house.
I chose an iridescent blue clay for the dish and rolled it out with a glass jar on a piece of wax paper. For my texture, I used a hair pin with a pretty design. Instead of a paper bowl, I used a small pyrex dish to form my dish.
I popped it into the oven, and once it was cooled I sanded the rough edges with a very fine sandpaper and applied a high gloss finish. I think it turned out great!
I have a bunch of other ideas for texture/color combinations. . . . Maybe I'll be making lots of these for Christmas this year :) I hope you enjoy the day off, do you have any fun plans?
That's really pretty. It turned out great. What a neat idea for a jewelry holder.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I'm pretty excited with how it turned out, especially with the gloss. The pictures don't do it justice!ReplyDelete
