Oscar Party Napkin Ring
Wolfgang Puck would be proud to set his Oscar party tables with these elegant napkin rings designed with the golden statue prize in mind. Mica powder rubbed on black clay creates a brilliant, metallic looking contrast, setting the right tone for the party. The template for the stencil is included with the instructions. Once cut, it can be reused to create more rings. Wipe off remnants of the powder with a damp cloth before reusing the stencil.
Before you begin, condition clay. Cutting should be done on plastic film, which will allow you to easily rotate or lift off the work when necessary.
IMPORTANT NOTE - Setting numbers vary on clay conditioning machines. On my machine the thickest setting is 1 and the thinnest is 9.
step 2 - Condition the black clay and sheet it on the # 2 setting of the conditioning machine.
step 6 - Blow away any loose powder. Blot the image with a barely damp paper towel to keep powder from migrating to other areas of the clay.
step 7 - Carefully remove the painters tape and the card stock.
step 8 - Cover the clay with bakers plastic. Flip it over and peel away the plastic from the backside. Using the perfect straight edge as your guide, cut the clay to measure 1.25 x 5.50”.
step 9 - Handle the clay using the plastic cover to prevent finger prints or smudged powder.
step 11 - Cure the clay standing upright on a covered baking sheet in a 275 degree oven for 30 minutes.
step 12 - Allow the clay to cool. Peel the cardboard away from the clay.
