Steps to Complete

Step 1

1. Start by sanding the outsides of your pirouline tins. This will just make it slightly more textured so that the clay has something to hold on to.

Step 2

2. Take a blob of clay, use your fingers or a rolling pin to stretch it out a bit and wrap it around your tin, working it and smoothing it until you have your tin covered.

Step 3

3. Take a small amount of clay and roll it out into a worm. Place it along the edge of one side of your tin, pressing it down so that the clay worm sticks to the clay tin.

Step 4

4. Pinch the top edge of your worm, so that it has little bumps.

Step 5

5. Repeat, making more clay “worms”, placing them around your tin and pinching them.

Step 6

6. Make one more clay worm. Form the one into a ring and press it down on to the top of your tin, giving it a finished look and covering up any rough edges

Step 7

7. Grab your spray paint and give it 1-3 coats, depending on how much you need! I used yellow and green for mine because I wanted them very cactus like.

Step 8

8. To give your clay tin a glazed look, mix a small amount of copper paint with a gloss varnish medium and brush it on over top of your spray paint. This just gives it a coppery metallic look.
