I love making miniature polymer clay bowls and it seems I have tons of idea and techniques I want to try, but before I get to them I end up seeing another cane I want to use and I’m off again.

I’ve never taken the time to make a tutorial on how I make them. It was full of trial and error. When Carol Simmons finished making 26 tiny bowls using a lightbulb for a challenge. She was kind enough to post a tutorial on the process she uses.

Although the process she uses in not exactly the same it should get you started on ways to make your own mini bowls. Maybe one day I will get around to photoing my process using laminated sheets.

Here is a sampling of the bowls that Carol made for her challenge, aren’t they gorgeous!
