Mmb-1 Pin-it%402x

Gather your materials for the project. You'll need the white and tan Sculpey, as well as a baking pan, a rolling pin, an oven safe bowl and wax paper.

Mmb-2 Pin-it%402x

Place a piece of wax paper down to protect your table surface. Divide your white and tan clay in half. Begin kneading one portion of the white clay out in your hands.

Mmb-3 Pin-it%402x

Create long logs out of the clay and place one on top of the other. Roll the combined pieces together between your palms.

Mmb-4 Pin-it%402x

Bend and twist the clay to create a swirling pattern. Repeat rolling iit n your hands

Mmb-5 Pin-it%402x

You'll repeat bending and twisting the logs at least 3 times. Do the same to the clay pieces you set aside.

Mmb-6 Pin-it%402x

Put both pieces of kneaded clay together and roll them into a ball in your hands. There is no exact science here! We rolled ours around for less than a minute.

Mmb-7 Pin-it%402x

Flatten out the ball of clay with a rolling pin over a piece of wax paper. Turn the paper in different directions so you're rolling out the clay evenly into a circle.

Mmb-8 Pin-it%402x

Roll out until the clay is about 1/4" thick.

Mmb-9 Pin-it%402x

You might want to look at both sides of the clay and determine which side you'd like on top since they will have different patterns. Place the bowl you are using over the top and flip the clay into the bowl. Peel off the wax paper.

Mmb-10 Pin-it%402x

Use your fingers to smooth the clay into the bowl. You can lift up the edges carefully to help you get out any air trapped underneath. Air will cause the clay to lift up during baking so be sure to have all edges touching the bowl, including the bottom. This is your chance to smooth out any marks or edges.

Place the bowl onto a baking tray. Set your oven to 275 degrees fahrenheit , bake for 15 minutes. If you've adjusted the tutorial make sure to follow the baking directions on the packaging for guidelines.

Mmb-12 Pin-it%402x

Allow to cool completely out of the over. Once cool remove the clay bowl from your oven safe bowl and you're all set to use it.

The only place I can log in is at the comment section. I try to log in when I open the site but it doesn't work. BTW I had extra clay left over so I rolled little tiny balls of clay and rimmed my bowl with them all around. Very cute!

I love how this turned out! At first mine was mysteriously all white on both sides, but I separated it in half and re-rolled it and it made a really nice creamy wave pattern. Great project!

I made this a little wider on the bottom and fluted the edges. It made an absolutely gorgeous soap dish.

Now I'm going to make some little soaps to go in it.
