Materials and tools:
- Polymer clay (colors of your choice)
- Czextuder + LC Disk 2 (extension with 3 holes)
- Scalpel, blade
- Liquid polymer clay
- • Bowl (mold – I used ø10cm)
Condition polymer clay in two colors. I used brown and green. Brown clay fills up ⅔ of the Czextruder barrel. Green clay fills up the rest (⅓).
Put both colors in the Czextruder and extrude the clay. Use the extension with 3 holes from LC Disk 1.
Let’s make the bowl. Prepare your mold. Coil the first extrusion to make a spiral. Continue till you reach the end of the extrusion.
Take another extrusion and continue. Smooth the joint.
Continue this way with the third extrusion.
Extrude clay in the green color. Roll the extrusion to make one end thinner.
Make 3 small balls and use liquid polymer clay to stick them to the bottom. Bake according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Let it cool down completely and remove the bowl from the mold.
