Making a trinket dish with clay is a fun and easy project that can be completed in a few simple steps.
Start by gathering your supplies. You will need some red clay, a small bowl or cup, a spoon, water, and an oven.
Next, take the clay out of the package and break off a small piece. Shape it into a ball and then press it down into the bottom of the bowl or cup. Use your fingers to smooth it out and make sure there is a well in the center for the dish to sit in.
Next, use the spoon to wet the edges of the clay all around the top of the bowl or cup. This will help it to stick to the clay as you pull up the sides of the dish.
Use your fingers to smooth down the clay and shape the edges as you go around. Then, use a wet spoon to smooth out any areas where it looks like too much clay is sticking up. Press the whole dish together firmly to make sure that it sticks well and doesn't fall apart.
Finally, bake the dish in an oven at 275 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes or until it is dry all the way through. Let it cool completely before using with food!
Now you're ready to display your new creation on your desk or coffee table!
