This is a simple little DIY that is a pretty way to dress up your dresser. Ever since John and I got these mini tart tins for a wedding gift, I have wanted to use one to make a scalloped dish. Well, over three years later, I finally got around to it!
You will need:
- 1 mini tart pan
- 1 small package of Sculpey or other polymer clay
First, it is very important to massage and knead your clay until it is very soft and pliable. This will keep it from cracking in the oven and will help it mold to the pan.
Next, roll the clay into a ball and then roll out into a thin, flat pancake.
Place the clay into the pan, making sure the base is completely covered. Remove any excess clay from the rim of the pan.
Then, smooth and press the clay to ensure an even layer around the edges, pinching any extra off the top.
Finally, bake in the pan for 12 minutes at 275 degrees. Allow it to cool completely, then gently remove it from the pan.
Totally doable! I think this would make a cute little gift. It would be extra special if you pressed a piece of lace into the clay to add a pretty texture before baking.
