Have you tried paper clay, yet? I love that it’s so simple, so forgiving and so very versatile. After seeing project after project on Pinterest about how easy it is to make clay bowls embossed with doilies and other items, I thought it would be fun to make a paper clay bowl and decorate it with stamps and ink. The gilding is a nod to the Japanese technique of Kintsugi—which means golden joinery—as I had the idea to maybe fill some of the uneven rim with the Creative Medium but ultimately used it to blend the different shades of green in the dried clay and add a bit of sheen and shimmer to the finished bowl.
