Just when I would think to myself, what else could I possibly create with Clay, I always find something. In case you guys missed my previous “clay adventures” you should check out my Marbled Clay Bowls, Geometric Coasters, Ikat Clay Coasters and DIY Cactus Clay Ring Holder.
But lets get to todays little project
Oven Bake Clay (this is what I’ve been using in all my projects)
So basically the colors for the clay that I chose for this bottle was literally the “leftover” clay pieces from all the previous project mentioned above.
I had these small amounts of clay, in all the colors you can imagine but which you couldn’t really use to make anything out of, but I didn’t want it to go to waste hence I mixed them altogether into a ball.
Then I rolled it out completely flat and that is when you could see the beautiful marbling.
After this I took the empty bottle and sprayed it with a little Spray Adhesive.
And completely wrapped the beautiful marbled clay onto the bottle.
Of course it didn’t fit the whole bottle, so I had to play around with the clay for it to move around until it finally fully covered the bottle.
Since the clay was soft at this point, I thought it would be perfect to place my self adhesive gemstone on it.
I placed it one by one till the mouth of the bottle until it was completely covered.
Since the clay was soft the gem stones fit right in.
Then after that it was time for it to get baked at 275F for 15 minutes.
When it came out of the oven, the clay was hard and solid so it would stay in place.
And there you have it.
This was such a fun way to recycle those old bottles.
What do you guys think
Will you guys try this out?
