I wanted to make something free form and a little rustic, so I didn't make a mold. I just showed my rolling pin to some paper clay and set off on the journey.

The inside is painted with gilding size, powdered blue pigment and then gilded with 22 carat gold leaf.
The process has taken a couple of days and I was delighted to find the time to try some new stuff. It's really a bit too bling for me but if I ever get around to making a mold I'd love to make some resin bowls.
I like this kind of sporting challenge? How about a Wimbledon Plate Challenge?
