I tried different ways to find out what works best. And somehow almost every clay bowl I removed from a metal bowl, survived it! So I would recommend trying out different types of bowls!
– Rolling pin (Staedtler Fimo)
– Air dry clay (Staedtler Fimo Air Basic) *
– Cutter/X-Acto knife
– Acrylic paint (Schmincke)
– Pen for texture
– Aluminium foil for texture
– Aquapro professional varnish – N°2 Ultra Brilliant
I couldn’t find the exact same varnish on Amazon, but here are the alternatives from the same brand:
Decopatch Aquapro Professional Varnish *
Decopatch Aquapro Professional Varnish Satine No. 1 *
The packaging of the glaze I used says the surface becomes food-safe after 3 coats, but I couldn’t find any source that would say if that’s really 100% food safe or not. There is another varnish by this brand called “Aquapro Satin Varnish”, it’s supposed to be an approved food-safe varnish, but after researching it, some sources said it might be not food safe after all. So I don’t know what you can trust! I think it’s okay to use the varnish, if the packaging says it’s food-safe, but you still should be careful!
So if you want to use the bowls for food, be sure to research the different types of the varnishes you are consider using for that.
► Alternative for the process
You guys can also place the clay inside the bowl by gently pressing down the clay so you get the shape of it. When the clay is dry, it will shrink a bit and it will be easier to remove the clay bowl from the bowl as it will detach from the bowl itself! When I tested that I used a metal bowl, and it was so easy to remove it. Even easier than when I placed it on top of the bowl! But I would suggest just trying it out! Since I always got different results!
Keep in mind, that the drying time depends on the clay you are using. I would check after a few hours, if the clay is dry enough to hold its shape, so you can remove it from the bowl. If you wait too long, it might impossible to remove the clay, without breaking it. 🙁
But I can really recommend using metal bowls!
