sculpey iii® glitter popsicle ring dish

Create this whimsical Glitter Popsicle Ring Dish with Sculpey III® clay.
Step 1

Protect your work surface with a disposable cover, such as wax paper (or disposable foil).
TIP: Work on a metal baking sheet (wax paper or foil). Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

Step 2

Start with clean hands, unwrap, and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay through a conditioning machine.
TIP: You can also condition by running clay through a pasta machine. Use a designated machine for clay purposes only. Clean hands with soap and water (or baby wipes) before switching clays. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

Step 3

Roll a snake of white clay approximately ¼" thick [.6 cm] by 4" long [10.2 cm]. Roll a snake of yellow clay the same size.

Step 4

Twist the two snakes together. Fold in half. Roll and twist again. Repeat this process a few times to marble the two clays together.

Step 5

Roll the marbled clay into a ball and then flatten with your roller to approximately 1/8" thick [.3 cm] sheet. Use the second smallest cutter to cut a circle out of your marbled clay sheet. Smooth the edges of your circle. Press the circle on to the base of your glass/metal dish. Push out any air bubbles from the middle out.

Step 6

Preheat oven to 275 °F [135 °C] and bake at 275 °F [135 °C] for 15 minutes. Once cooled, pop the marble dish off the glass dish. Set aside.
TIP: For best results:

  • Bake clay on an oven-proof surface such as metal or aluminum foil. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up.
  • Use an oven thermometer.
  • Do not use a microwave oven.
Step 7

Roll a ball of pink glitter clay approximately 2" [5.1 cm] in size. Shape this into a rectangular shape like a popsicle. Use the side of a Sharpie® marker or regular marker to create two indents on either side of the popsicle. Flatten the bottom of the popsicle to look like it is melting. Press it onto your marbled dish that you made to make sure it looks right. Once satisfied, remove from the dish and set the popsicle aside while you make the sprinkles.

Step 8

To make the sprinkles, roll tiny thin snakes of the following clays: purple, pink glitter, yellow, white, orange, string bean, turquoise and hot red. Cut little equal sized pieces from these snakes and roll them into tiny balls. Press the “sprinkles” onto the bottom portion of the popsicle and the melted portion. Stick the popsicle stick down the middle of the popsicle.
TIP: If your stick is too long, cut ½" [1.3 cm] or so off the end you are putting into the clay.

Step 9

Bake in the oven at 275 °F [135 °C] for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.

Step 10

Super glue the popsicle onto the little yellow and white marbled dish. Let glue dry completely.
