Instructions on how to make bowls with stamped pattern

Today, on Euromaxx DIY, we’ll be making little bowls for your jewelry and odds and ends. It’s surprisingly easy and we’ll show you how you can do it yourself.

You'll need

  • air-drying modeling clay. You can find it in crafts shops or on the internet 
  • a rolling pin or just use an empty bottle 
  • a rubber stamp  with an attractive pattern 
  • a colored inkpad in the color of your choice
  • some acrylic paint – for example gold
  • a bowl – of any size you like
  • and Some sandpaper

 

Instructions

Take a piece of your modeling clay.

Roll it into a ball, and then roll it out flat with the rolling pin.

The clay should be perfectly smooth but not too thin. 

 

Press the stamp onto the inkpad and then start imprinting the design right onto the modeling clay. 

It’s best to begin in the middle.

Take your bowl as a stencil and press it deep into the clay top down.

Now take the knife and cut out the circular form.

Lay the disk into a similar-sized bowl with the stamped side up.

Press the clay carefully into the bowl to form its shape

It takes the modeling clay about 12 hours to harden thoroughly.

Use the sandpaper to round off the edges.

Now the bowl itself is finished. 

But if you trace the edge with golden acrylic paint you'll give the bowl a nice contour and a more substantial look. 

Finished!

 

Good to know

If you don’t have any rubber stamps around home, you can print some very nice designs with a lace doily.  You can also stamp designs in relief with cookie cutters, but be very careful not to push the cutter all the way through the clay.
