Hi, I’m Melina and welcome to Expert Village.
Today we are going to make a polymer clay bowl. For this next step we’re going to create
an outer edge to our polymer bowl. So, we’re going to take some clay any colors that you
want and blend them any way that you see fit. We are going to keep rolling around our clay
until we get a nice consist color. What we’re doing is creating a piece that’s going to
go along the outer edge of our bowl. So, measure long and make sure that you have a nice size.
Try to keep it even. There we go. So you’re going to go around your bowl and you have
some oil you’re going to want to smooth it down. Smooth around the edges and believe
it or not olive oil really is great for working with polymer clay. Get a nice clean look and
then you just wash it off with soap and water when you’re done. The clay it’s not sensitive
to water. What we’re going to do is we’re going to go ahead and put some foil down because
we’re creating the bowl upside down we’re going to go ahead and once we’re done making
the bowl we are just going to pop it right in the oven, on the piece of foil that we
are going to create it on. Then we are going to fold the piece of foil and this way we
don’t have to lift it up when we are done, and this is what we are going to use to cook
it in the oven.
