Does anyone else remember the “Gets Lost in Space” episode of The Magic School Bus? Its okay if you don’t, you can stream it on netflix. You guys… there was even a computer game based on that episode! Can you believe it? Well there was. With my recent obsession that is the amazing Miss Frizzle, I thought it only appropriate to bring some of the space inside. Not to mention that I’m trying to spark some joy into my orgainzational life… so this project is kinda 2 fold. I’m a little in love with the way this marbled galaxy jewelry dish turned out and how super easy it was to do!
Marbled Galaxy Jewelry Dish
What you’ll need:
Polymer Clay (in Black, fushia, purple, teal and silver)
Shallow ceramic dish slightly smaller than your dish(I used a small soy sauce dish)
Glass or bowl the size your want your dish to be
Rolling pin or wine bottle
Silver paint pen
Time: 15 minutes + cook time
Cost: $10 or less
Skill Level: Easy
Grab your polymer clay and lets start by grabbing the amount of each color you’ll need. About half a block of black and small amounts of each of your colors.
Roll each amount of clay into a snake and stack them together. You’ll want them to be about 4 inches in length.
Roll these snakes together and twist to you get a candycane like twist. Roll it again like a snake until you get an 8 inch length. Continually twist to keep that pattern.
Fold the candy cane snake in half and twist again! Roll into another snake and then smoosh it into a ball!
Roll the ball in your hands or on your work surface until you get a smooth ball. If you’re happy with the amount of colors presented smoosh it flat and grab your rolling pin. If all of the colors are not visible on the top of the ball, tear it in half and smash the smooth sides together.
Grab your rolling pin, or in my case a Zevia bottle, roll your clay into a flat pancake. You can experiment with different directions and see what kind of effect that gives!
Once your clay is rolled flat, grab the something circular the size your want your dish to be and place it inverted on the clay. I used a pint glass so mine turned out kinda small.
Use the craft knife to cut around the edge of the clay for a circle dish.
From here, gently place the clay circle into the shallow dish. You want it to sag just a bit in the middle. Bake according to the directions on your clay. Mine was 275 for 15 minutes.
Once your clay Galaxy Jewelry Dish is cooked allow it to cool before gently tapping it out of the shallow dish.
Using your silver paint pen, embelish silver around the sides of the dish and add a few extra stars in the middle.
Voila! You’ve got some space in your jewelry area!
