I spend an inordinate amount of money on monogrammed things. Lately, with a slew of friends getting married, I wanted to get them something special with their future names on them. Well, my monthly student loan payment rolled around and I realized I could not do that. Never fear, Pinterest is here!
I made this adorable polymer clay ring dish for my friend who is getting married soon, and it has her future name in it! I love giving little dainty dishes when my friends get engaged so they have a cute, and safe, spot to place their rings if they need to take it off (showers, doing dishes, etc)
So my normal supplies: A wine bottle (because I do not own a rolling pin), a cheese board (because I have no adult cutting board), an x-acto knife (because I have very few priorities in life), a block of polymer clay (used one small block to make the dish), a stamp kit (the only reason I wanted to do this), and a few oven-safe glass bowls.
I cleaned up the edges a little bit with an x-acto knife.
I had a cute Martha Stewart stamping kit that had tons of letters to set and a little contraption that holds the letters together.
Unfortunately, I did not apply even pressure to the stamp, so the word didn’t come out so pretty but I didn’t want to risk the dreaded double-stamp and have to start over, so this is how it ended up getting baked.
I love seeing people make other polymer clay ring dishes. I’ve seen using multiple colored clays rolled together so that it creates a marble effect, so this may just have to be another project for another day!
