CREATIVE CHALLENGE – DAY TWENTY NINE

Polymer Clay is really fun to play with, and once baked, it’s nice and hard. But did you know if you wrap it around something made of glass, you can keep the glass in it, bake it, and have a waterproof and lovely shaped vase of your very own design? Pretty rad!

You will need

✚ Polymer Clay (probably more than you think, I used 4 packets for this small vase)

✚ Glass item to wrap around

✚ Baking paper, rolling pin (or use a cake decorating rolling pin and non-stick matt if the have them!)

What to do

Step one ⋙ Knead the clay to make it soft, and roll into snakes

Step two ⋙ Twist the snakes together, then roll out flat to about 3-5mm

Step three ⋙ Wrap around a glass or vase, mould and scrape off any excess

Step four ⋙ Bake in your oven as per the instructions on the back of the packet
