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!

Happy Claying !

Looking for a fun new tutorial to try this weekend. Make this reversalable Pendant

Looking for a simple but complex looking project to try this weekend. Check out this reversible pendant tutorial I found by Svetlana Belova. It is written in Russian but the photos are easy to follow.

I love scrolling through Pinterest to see what fun ideas I like. Here is one I found and like it’s quite simple in the design.

I can imagine this being done in colors from a subtle monochromatic, complementary, or even a wonderfully bold triad color scheme.

All you need are a few basic polymer clay tools.

And your choice of polymer clay colors.

Happy Claying,
