Damask Polymer Clay Jewelry Dishes!

 Damask Polymer Clay Jewelry Dishes!
 Back in April, I made some beautiful Damask Pendants!

And I love the technique so much I wanted to do it again!
So I made little delicate jewelry dishes.
Perfect to put by the sink for wedding rings while washing dishes...
Or on the vanity!

You will need an oven safe dish that you want to mimic the shape of.
I chose a square dish.
A damask background rubber stamp.  (Here's the one I bought)
White Sculpey Clay.
Rolling pin
Paint/brushes
 Warm up the clay in your hands.
 Use a rolling pin to roll it about 1/4" thick.
 Press the background stamp onto the clay firmly and evenly.
 Peel up the stamp gently.
 What a wonderful impression!
 Carefully lift the clay and set it in your desired dish.
Gently press the clay down to take the shape of the dish.
 Use a hobby knife or a kitchen knife to trim the edges off.
 Place the dish and all on a baking sheet.
Bake according to package directions.
I did 20 minutes at 275*
 Remove from oven, let cool.
Then carefully remove clay from the dish.
Mine had no trouble coming out.
 Now we are ready to paint.
 I painted one dish blue, one sea green.
Let dry completely.
 Then I added a slew of other blues and pink and just splotched them on the design.
 Add some pink
 And some aqua
 Like this.
 Now take a scrap of fabric or old cloth...and put it on your finger like so:
 Gently rub the paint off the top surfaces of the damask pattern.
 It will even remove the base paint as well...
Then I put them outside and spritzed them with some clear varnish spray.
 Let them dry and enjoy!
Super stunning and perfect for holding little things that need a home!
