Supplies:
  • 4 oz clay (approximately)
  • Texture sheet
  • Blade
  • Clay extruder
  • Ruler
  • Brayer
  • Mold for knob
  • TLS
  • Powder pigments or paints for highlighting
  • Pot Directions:

    Step 1: Condition clay. (For this pot, I used equal measures of gold and copper clay.)Roll out two 8" x 3" sheets at the #2 setting (each about 1/8" thick) on your pasta machine.
    Step 2: Place one sheet on top of the other and bray gently to seat. Bevel cut the short end of the sheet.
    Step 3: Flip sheet over and bevel the other short end. Place texture sheet over clay (I used a light mist of water as a release) and roll over it with the brayer. Join the short ends, smoothing the seam carefully (you can use a small amount of TLS for added security if you wish).
    Step 4: You now have a 3" high tube of polymer clay. Stand the tube upright on one open end. Bring the edges in to form three legs, and pinch together.
    Step 5: Keep the legs as even as possible. Blend the pinched area, smoothing the seams.
    Step 6: I added small snakes to the bottom of the legs to give the bottom a "finished" look.
    Step 7: Check the shape of the pot, and gently coax into a circle if needed. Cure upside down. Cool, then sand any rough edges (I sanded the opening to round off the sharpness. Though it isn't strictly necessary, I wet sanded the vessel using 220 grit through 2000 grit wet/dry sandpaper).
