These look complicated but are actually super easy. I use them as spice bowls on my table.

You will need:
paper clay
drops of craft paint
talcum powder
small bowls
  1. Take a piece of clay and add a few drops of craft paint to it.
  2. Knead the paint into the clay, but don’t over-knead.
  3. Roll out the paper clay in a little talcum powder until about 3mm thick.
  4. Use a glass to cut out circles and drape them over small bowls to give them shape.
  5. Let them dry for 24 hours.


Only use the bowls for dry products—wet things will make them soggy.
