Step One: Roll out a ball of clay until it’s about 1/16” thick.

Step Two: Press a cutting of greenery into the clay. Use a rolling pin to gently flatten.

Step Three: Use a pair of tweezers to carefully remove the greenery.

Step Four: Meanwhile, press the rim of a cup down onto the clay to form the round shape of the ring dish.

Step Five: Use a butter knife to trim the edges.

Step Six: Place the round of clay into an oven-safe small shallow bowl. Carefully press down and smooth out the edges.

Step Seven: Bake according to the package instructions. To minimize the risk of the bowl cracking, place the bowl in the oven before preheating. Let it fully cool down in the oven before removing.

Step Eight: Once cooled, use a metallic paint pen to colour in the greenery outline.
