DIY Gold and Marble Jar
What do you need :
- A jar of your choice
- Polymer clay in white and granit effect
- Gold spray
- Aluminium foil
- Craft knife
- Varnish and a brush
- Masking tape
- Protective canvas or newspaper
Step 1 : Decide where you want the gold part to end and protect the part of the jar with paper or plastic that you don’t want to be sprayed.
Step 2 : Go outside or in a well ventilated place to spray the jar in gold and let dry.
Step 3 : Condition the clay by kneading to get it more soft and moldable. Mix the two color by using this great technique that I found on The Felted Fox Blog.
Step 4 : Use a glass bottle or a rolling pin to flatten the ball of clay. Apply it on the bottom of the jar that has aluminium foil on it to protect it. Form the edges.
Step 5 : Bake the bowl form, with de aluminium foil in it, according to the manufacturer’s directions. Allow it to cool completely.
Step 6 : Varnish the bowl form. Ik you want you can glue onto the jar. But if you don’t, you can aslo use the clay part as a little bowl next to your jar.
