DIY Ring Cones

new

So I stepped out to Michaels a few days ago and bought a bunch of materials…which means diys are on the way (hopefully). Here’s one that is one of my favorites! This project is so adorable and almost everyone needs to make one! (I mean come on, who doesn’t own a few rings?) As you can probably tell by my last post, I’m obsessed with water marbling and decided to give it a go on clay. It turned out great and I couldn’t wait to share it! Read on for the how-to!

 

Materials: Oven bake clay, nail polish, cup with water, glass dish (to put in the oven)

1. Start out by getting the clay to the size you want. I made two ring cones out of the pack I bought.

2. Roll the clay into a ball.

43. Apply pressure to one side to form the top and smooth out the clay as necessary. Make sure your rings fit the top and do not fall to the bottom.

54. Press down the clay onto a flat surface to create the bottom and make sure the ring holder stays standing. It took me a couple of tries to get the shape I wanted!

65. Put your ring cones onto a oven safe glass dish and bake according to clay instructions. My package said to bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, but I felt the clay was not fully hardened so I went for an extra 7 minutes.

76. After baking, let cool. I noticed that the clay was a little bit dirty with dust particles so I decided to spray paint both cones white for a clean finish.

87. Begin the water marbeling process! I’m no expert on explaining this, but you can find some tips in my last post here! Basically, fill your plastic cup with water and start putting nail polish drops in the water. The nail polish should start to spread out and you can create different designs with a toothpick or pointed stick if you work quickly.

8. Dip the cone into the water to get the design to transfer. I did the process several times to cover the cone completely. Let dry overnight and seal with modpodge or a spray gloss!
