I love how these turn out. You simply drape the clay over a balloon and let dry. It looks like a piece of art.

You will need:

paper clay
talcum powder
  1. Roll out the paper clay in a little talcum powder until about 3mm thick. Make uneven edges so it looks very organic.
  2. Blow up a balloon and place in a bowl so it stands up securely. The bigger the balloon the wider the bowl.
  3. Drape the clay over the balloon and leave it to dry for about 24 hours.
  4. Pop the balloon and you’ll be left with a beautiful bowl.


The striped bowls are made the same way and painted with watercolors!
