painted paper clay

Here are my completed paper clay bowls.  I am really loving how they turned out.

A bit of paint with gold accents.

Then a little wax on the insides which gives them a nice weight and feel (the purple one doesn’t have wax).

They will be given with the rock inside, but the bowls would be nice for holding special jewelry, yes?

    I love these so much! We’ve not played with paper clay but now I want to try it. Maybe when a few more leaves come out we can press leaves into it. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Oh yes! Definately 😀

  4. These are lovely Regina! How do they hold up to use, as far as dropping in jewelry or change, whatever? Both: how does the paper clay hold up against breaking or chipping, and how does the wax finish hold up, does it stay pretty? Just gorgeous!

    • They actually hold up really well. They get little scuff marks, but nothing too noticeable. The encaustic wax I buy is a high resin to wax ratio (it’s a 8:1 ratio) so they harden very nicely. The girl I usually buy it from doesn’t sell it anymore, but I love it. Oh, and I’ve dropped them and they don’t break or chip (yet)
