DIY Ring Cones
I’m back from Painting it Purple to share a simple DIY project with you all. I’ve been seeing some amazing ceramic ring dishes and cones all over the internet and with a pretty high price tag, I couldn’t bring myself to buy any. Instead I decided to attempt to make my own with some clay and acrylic paint.
These DIY Ring Cones are really easy to make, cost very little and I think they turned out pretty great.
What You Need:
- Sculpey clay
- Acrylic paint
- Paint brush
- Sculpey glaze
Step One: Cut a piece of clay whatever size you want to use (mine was about 1 inch x 1.5 inches)
Step Three: Roll into a cylinder like shape.
Step Four: Start to form your cone. Place one end of the cylinder on your surface and begin to shape a cone.
Step Five: Place your cones on a baking sheet and bake your clay according to the directions on your package.
Step Six: Paint with your acrylic paint. You may need to do a few coats.
Step Seven: Once your paint is dry, paint over with the glaze.
I obviously chose different shades of purple for all of my cones. I was going to add black or grey speckles but I decided I liked the purple swirls and didn’t want to risk ruining them with my not so great speckling skills. I will definitely be making more (Christmas gift ideas!) and eventually I’ll try out some speckling because it just looks so fun!
