Shaving bowl with a texture

Hopefully it’s an easy one.

I looked at the art store this week and found some polymer clay that I can cook in the oven. It’s not very expensive and if it doesn’t work, it’s no big deal.

I don’t have a wheel to do pottery and I never made a pot out of clay before. But… trying new stuff is always fun. Even if it fails…

My plan is make a shaving bowl with a texture inside. I’ve been looking at pictures for a while now but I’m not sure if the texture is raised from the bottom of the bowl or if I will need to push and make a trench(let’s call it like that for now)? I don’t think it matters much (if it’s raised, pushed in or a combination of both) but who knows? I don’t want to break the space continuum…

I will post some results when I have them. Thank you all!

Cooked! And it works!

So, this is now hard but light. Since it’s polymer, it’s not hard like clay. Out of the package, it’s a bit harder than playdoh but soft enough to work with.

I did not apply any finish or sealer since this isn’t supposed to be porous. I will report back if anything changes while I use it.

The more you work it raw, the softer it gets.
Looks like a success story!

Interesting design Luc. Considering that you made it free hand with no potters wheel etc it turned out rather well. I am also interested to see how long it may last.

First pot, zero experience with that (closest thing is playdoh or plumber putty), no wheel.

So far it’s holding no problems
