Get ready to make this super cute personalized jewelry dish!  It's very easy and only uses a few supplies.  Here we go...

* Take a nice chunk of clay off your brick of DAS clay.  Roll it into a ball and flatten it.  Roll it out to a thickness of around 1/4".  I used a clear acrylic rolling tool but you can use a small rolling pin or even a bottle.

*Use a round glass to cut out a circle in the clay.  Remove the excess clay from around the circle.  This is your round dish!  

*Put the clay circle onto a dish or inside a bowl to create a small raised edge (you don't want your rings falling off!).

*You can smooth out any rough edges b

y going over it with a wet finger.

* Use a Burin embossing tool (also known as a Stylus) to carve out an initial. You could also use something with a fine end like a skewer or a toothpick. I carved the letter C because that's what my name starts with :).  I found a cursive "C" online as a guide for me, then I drew it out on a piece of paper to use as a reference for carving. Again, use a wet finger to soften any rough edges.

*Let the clay dry for around 24 hours.  I place it on a paper drink tray so that the air could flow underneath which would allow the clay to dry evenly.

*Once dry, give the entire dish a coat of white Gesso.  Let dry.

* Separate your napkin layers.  This napkin has 3 layers (2 white and 1 printed).  Arrange your napkin on the dish where you would like the pattern to be.  Use a wet paint brush to paint the napkin around the dish.  Separate the outer napkin .  Do this gently because it tears easily.

*Position your napkin piece on the dish.  Lift a small section and apply some Mod Podge.  Place the napkin back down and cover the top with a coat of mod podge.  Continue this process all around the dish until the whole napkin is glued.  Make sure to push the napkin down into your letter carving.  Let dry

*Paint the back of the dish with 2-3 coats of metallic paint. Let dry.

*Paint the edge of the dish with 2-3 coats of metallic paint. Let dry.

*Paint the engraved portion of the letter with 2 coats of metallic paint.  You'll want to use a very small paint brush. Let dry.

*Give the entire dish 2-3 coats of Triple Thick varnish.  This will make it very glossy!!  Love it!

We hope you enjoyed the fun and easy project.  See ya next time!!
