clay jewelry holders

Step up your clay crafting and create adorable textured jewelry holders accented with a little paint.
Step 1
Start by softening the ¾ of the block of black clay in your hands by kneading together. Roll it out with a clay tool until it is about ¼" thick.
 
Using the medium size round cookie cutter, cut out a circle. Set aside.
 
Soften half of the block of orange clay and roll out to ¼" thick. Cut out a small circle with the cookie cutter. 
Step 2
Use the Sculpey® texture tools to imprint patterns on the clay. Press hard enough to indent the print, but not so hard that it goes through the clay. Use different texture blocks on the two circles.
 
Roll a piece of foil into a bowl shape so that when you set the clay on top, the outside edges are higher than the middle. It should scoop down like a bowl. Do this for both bowls.
 
Place clay bowls in the foil and then into the oven and bake for 15 minutes at 275°.  
Step 3
Remove bowls from oven and let cool thoroughly.
 
Gently rub blue paint on the inside of the black bowl, leaving the grooves from the texture unpainted. Let dry.
 
Paint the bottom and the edges of the black bowl with white paint. Let dry. 
Step 4
Paint the inside of the orange bowl with white paint, leaving the grooves unpainted. Let dry.
 
Paint the bottom and edges of the orange bowl with black paint. Let dry.
