Roll this piece into a ball and then flatten once again.
To get maximum marbling, flatten again and cut into four strips. Stack the strips.
Roll once again into a ball then flatten once more. This time flatten enough to get your circle to create the bowl.
To make a bowl with a ruffled edge, use a wide mouth mason jar ring. Use the outer edge to cut a circle. Take this circle and put into the inner ring making the ruffles as you go. Use the mason jar ring to hold the bowl in place as it bakes according to the package directions.
To make a simple bowl shape with no ruffles, you the outer edge of a small oven safe bowl to cut a circle. Drape the circle over the back of the bowl and smooth out. Bake according to the package directions.
Once baked and cooled, finish the inside of your bowl with one coat of the glitter paint.
Then finish the edge if desired with the liquid leaf. Allow everything to dry and give as a gift or keep for yourself.
