DIY Monogram Jewelry Dish - Anthropologie Inspired

9 Materials
Make a gorgeous jewelry dish from polymer clay! This DIY is super EASY!
To begin, take a lump of clay and start working it with your hands. The aim of the game is to warm this bad boy up so it’s easily pliable
After your clay is nice and soft, roll it out with a rolling pin. I’d say to roll it out to the recommended thickness on your package. Once you're done, smooth out any imperfections with your hand.
Next, take a glass or another oven safe container to mold your clay on. Fold it over and smooth out any air bubbles
You may want to lift the clay from the sides and smooth down to release any bubbles that may be trapped inside
After it’s buttery smooth, take a sharp x act knife to cut the clay to your desired depth.
Bake the clay according to the instructions on the paper then pop it off the glass
With a fine grit sander, sand down the imperfections. This may take a bit so be sure to watch your fav show!
This was a complete rookie mistake but I began painting the copper initials. Ideally I would have painted first.
Paint shadows on the letter and circles and begin to paint around the letter
Keep going by mixing gray, white and very little black! Paint on they inside and the outside
Finally, when you’re all done, I took a copper leafing pen and traced the top of the dish. You can leave the dish matte, or add some clear acrylic spray to make it nice and shiny.
