We had some leftover clay from our Faux Glazed Ceramic Pot DIY (see that one here) and decided to make some ring cones!

|| What You'll Need ||

  • Air Dry Clay
  • Toilet Paper Roll
  • Nail Polish in your fave colour
  • Sandpaper  
  • Black acrylic paint (optional) 

Cut the toilet paper roll down the middle lengthwise and roll it into a cone shape and then cut off the access at the bottom (try a couple rings on it to make sure it's skinny enough). Next roll out your clay nice and flat but not too thin and lay it over the cardboard cone and begin shaping it. Get your fingers a little wet and smooth out the lumps and round the top so it's less "pointy", then using a knife cut off all the excess clay at the bottom.

Once it's dry (24hrs) use the sandpaper to smooth it out even more and then wipe clean with a dry rag and then time to paint. You really have freedom here with how you want to paint it, we painted ours 3/4 of it and did 2 coats to reach our desired shade. The nail polish worked great because it added a gloss finish so we didn't need to do that as well (and we liked that the bottom wasn't glossy but just the matte clay).

If you like the black dots then just mix a little black acrylic paint with some water and dip your brush in it (smaller is better) and "flick" the paint onto the cone. We recommend doing this outside as it can splatter quite a bit. Then let dry.

We are so happy with how it turned out and now all our rings have a cozy little home.
