The much promised polymer clay bowl tutorial! :la: Sorry it took me so long to finish it :( (useless information: I took 98 photos to complete this tutorial).

Oh man, it's been years since I first found this. Now, I'm actually making my own mniatures using clay and coming back to this, I can understand it so much better. I can't wait to make these bowls properly and make some dolly sized ramen!
This was very good, I think I can make bowls now.

I love this. I'm not sure, but I think bowls this size would be perfect for the scale I use. I'm saving my clay for other projects right now, but I definitely want to save this tutorial for when I'm making accessories- and figure out where to find a decent-sized marble.

Hello! I'm so glad that you liked it, I really hope you'll try it :) what scale are you using?
UtorDifferentia's avatar
I'm not precisely sure what the scale is because my figurines don't have normal proportions. They're all about 3 inches high, but their heads usually make up about a third of their total height. Size-wise, they seem to go well with Japanese puzzle erasers and a 1:12 dollhouse couch I bought years ago, so I think 1:12 scale might work. I'm hoping to pick up a bottle of Ramune at the grocery store this week, so I'll have to see if the marble in the bottle will work. I'm not sure how else to get a single marble as opposed to a 4-ounce bag.
Talty's avatar
oooh I see, then it will probably work :) the couch may be a good reference.

I was lucky I saved my marbles from when I was little, if you know any small child you may ask them to borrow a marble. They come in a lot of sizes, so you may be able to find the right one for your figurines.

I made my first bowl! If you want to see how it turned out, it's here. I think it could be better, but that's probably because this was my first time using this tutorial. I have a few ideas about what I can do to improve.

Just out of curiosity (yes, I'm going to try to do this once I start claywork), this doesn't ruin the marble, does it? I know you can make crackle marbles by baking then dropping into cold water, but I'd probably make a bowl with some of my dad's marbles, and he'd kill me if I ruined his marbles because I baked them :iconnoooooplz:
