Last year while we were gathered for Christmas Day, we made
Sharpie Mugs as a fun thing to do together. You can see them here.
This year I saw these marbled clay bowls and thought they might
be fun to hold keys, change or jewelry. Instructions are here.
I laugh at this photo every time I look at it.
Everyone took their bowl making very seriously, apparently! haha.
You choose your colors and roll out long snakes.
Then you squish the snakes together and roll
into one long rope.
Then you twist it, overlap it and smoosh
it together, repeating a few times.
Then you roll to a 1/4" thickness
and cut into a circle.
Setting it in a bowl allows the center to sink a little,
creating a concave shape. Then you bake them for 15 minutes.
The final touch is a little shimmery paint on the edge.
Not too bad, although I don't think any of us had
better quit our day jobs! lol...
