Souffle Canyon Memories Bowl

Starting at $2.79 leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. -Ibn Battuta   A trip to the canyons of the American Southwest inspired this bowl. Steep walls of rough textured stone, turquoise blue water and cloudless skies are all reflected in the design of this piece. A lovely memory to sit on a table and remind one of the places you have been and the stories you could tell. Design by Mari O'Dell

Additional Resources

    Getting Started:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Work ‘n Bake Clay Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.
Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 30 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Using a sheet of the copy paper, create paper patterns of the shape of the bowl and the texture "flap". Set aside.
Mix the 8 oz of the Grey Granite and 2 oz of Latte together. Make sure the clay is fully conditioned. Make a sheet of the mixture by running it through the second thickest setting of the clay conditioning machine. Working on a glass surface, (this makes removal easier) use your paper pattern to cut the main shape out of the sheeted granite clay mix. You may need to piece the clay to form the entire semi-circular pattern.
Now sheet the conditioned Poppy Seed Souffle on the second thickest setting of the clay conditioning machine. Repeat with the conditioned Gold Premo. Set both aside on a glass surface
Using the larger ripple blade from the Super Slicer set, make an angled cut in the granite clay semi-circle. Leave at least one inch of the granite clay at either end of the cut pattern free of cuts. Gently separate the granite clay, leaving room to manipulate a piece of the Poppy Seed (which has been cut into a thin ripple) into the divots. Snug the other side of the granite cut. Cover with a piece of candy paper and gently press the pieces together. Rub with a bone folder or an acrylic rod. Cut several ripple pieces around the granite piece. Make sure to snug and smooth each one as you make them. Now (using a thin blade) release the granite piece from the glass work surface. Turn it over and make sure the inserted pieces are well joined. Turn the granite piece over and cut a few circles with 1/8 " circle cutter, remove these with a pin tool. Cut replacement circles with the gold clay and insert them in the circular openings in the granite clay. Cover with a sheet of candy paper, burnish, meld and smooth as with the Poppy Seed ripples. Using the paper pattern, re-trim the granite clay if necessary. Smooth all the edges.
Release clay from glass work surface and carefully ease this clay onto the outside of your clean glass bowl, but do not press in place yet. Work with the glass bowl raised on a glass jar to allow for edge overhang.
Re-roll remaining granite clay and sheet through the third thickest setting of the clay conditioning machine. Spray the EDGY texture plate with water and place the sheeted clay down on the texture plate. Cover with a piece of candy paper and use the smooth round end of your acrylic roller to press the clay firmly into the texture plate.The candy paper should allow you to easily remove the textured clay from the plate. Set this piece aside.Now create another sheet of granite clay which has been sheeted through the next thinner setting of your clay conditioning machine. Repeat texturing as above.Use the smaller paper template to cut two of the same shapes out of these textured sheets. Place these pieces together (textured side facing out) creating a two sided textured piece. Smooth all the edges.
Slide one side of this piece under and one side over the clay already on your glass. Trim as needed to have two edges which are higher than the textured pieces. Gently meld the pieces together.Create the bottom of the bowl by cutting a 2.5" circle out of granite clay sheeted on the second thickest setting on the clay conditioning machine. Place on the bottom open area and meld in place.A foot may be added at this time if you wish. Use the 2.5" and 1.5" cutters to create a foot out of a double layer of clay sheeted on the widest setting on your clay conditioning machine.Cure the bowl (on its support) in a preheated 275 degree F oven for 40 minutes. Allow to cool.
Mix a small amount of Clear Liquid Bakeable Clay with a few drops of the alcohol ink color of your choice. Working on the outside of the bowl, apply to the textured areas with a brush. Don't use too heavy an application. Mix a small amount of Pearl Liquid Bakeable Clay with a few drops of alcohol ink and apply as with the tinted Clear. Allow the colors to run together and mix a bit , as this adds interest. Re-cure in a preheated 275 degree oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool slightly. Now apply the tinted Liquid bakable clay to the inside textured areas and the inside base, so that it appears to be a pool or lake. Cure for 25 minutes in a preheated 275 degree oven. Allow to cool.
Use a thin metal spatula to run around the top rim to loosen and release the clay bowl from it's glass form.
