Lunar Trinket Dish

 

Materials

  • Air dry clay
  • Rolling pin
  • Baking paper or surface your clay won't stick to
  • Gem gravel and small tumbled gems
  • Clay blending tools (or use the end of a small spoon)
  • Water
  • Seal with a gloss varnish

Method

  1. Roll your clay flat (as thick as you'd like - enough to press your gems in) and cut a circle out.
  2. Make a moon shape in the center and fill with crystals, pressing them into the clay. 
  3. Roll out a long piece of clay and add around the edge of the dish. Blend by gently pushing the inside of the rolled clay border, down to the dish base.
  4. Smooth out with a little water on your finger tip. Allow to dry and paint if you desire. Seal with a gloss varnish.
