NAP­KIN RINGS

What you’ll need:

White poly­mer or air-dry clay Ruler Tooth­pick Small rolling pin Wax pa­per Di­rec­tions:

1. Knead the clay and form into a ball.

2. Us­ing a rolling pin, flat­ten clay out on wax pa­per to form a smooth shape about 1/2 inch thick, 1 inch wide, and about 6 inches long.

3. Don’t worry if the edges are not straight, but try to get a smooth sur­face and an even thick­ness. 4. Form the shape into a ring about 1 1/2 inches in di­am­e­ter, and press one end to the other to close the ring. 5. Us­ing the tooth­pick, cre­ate tex­ture on the sur­face with dots or lines. You can use your thumb to make in­den­ta­tions. 6. Bake the rings us­ing pack­age in­struc­tions or al­low to air dry.

Note: Do not use mod­el­ing clay, which is non-hard­en­ing and might be a fire haz­ard when baked. You can pur­chase poly­mer clay at se­lected arts and crafts stores like Deovir Art Sup­plies.
