Materials Needed:

  • Sculpey or Fimo clay in 3 different colors
  • shallow glass bowl
  • circular items to use as stencils (lids, small bowls,etc.)
  • butter knife
  • pen with a flat end
  • scrap piece of lace
  • rolling pin

Roll Out Clay

Condition the clay by rolling it around in your hands for a few minutes. Once soft, start rolling it flat with the rolling pin to a 1/8-inch thickness.

Create a Lace Pattern

To create the lace pattern, lay the scrap piece of lace over the flat clay (image 1). Roll over the lace a few times with moderate pressure to imprint the clay (image 2). Pick up the lace to make sure the pattern transferred onto the clay (image 3).

Create Polka Dots and Stripes

Use the flat end of a pen to create a polka-dot pattern in the clay (image 1). To make stripes, drag a butter knife with very light pressure on top of the clay (image 2).
