Dia Ring Cones
Uniquely useful--display your rings with a contemporary twist.
- baking dish or tray
- wax paper (optional)
- sculpey clay
- cracked pepper
Gather your tools and materials. We love the look of cracked pepper added to the clay but you can add other dried herbs or dyes to give it a unique look.
Open the clay and break it in half along the part line. Warm the section by rolling it around in your hands.
Once you have a smooth consistency (about 3 minutes) dip one area into the cracked pepper.
Knead the clay to evenly incorporate the pepper.
Roll it into a ball. Once you have a uniform shape start applying more pressure to one end which will start to create a cone shape.
Smooth out the top and shape it how you like. You can make it taller than this but make sure not to get it too thin or the rings will fall to the bottom .
Stand it up and press down to create a flat bottom.
Repeat with the other side of the clay and place them on a baking dish (do not use wax paper in the oven). We baked ours for about 20 minutes at 275 degrees on the center rack. Follow the directions on the package if you created other shapes to make sure you are baking it the right amount based on the thickness.
Allow to cool. Stack up all your pretty rings to display.
