Free Rock Purse Tutorial

Over at the Blue Damselfly Jewelry Blog, I believe the writer’s name is Julie, you will find a really fun tutorial on making rock purses. While not a new idea, it’s always great to have a new take on an old technique.
Rock purses are pretty much what it sounds like. You use a real rock as a shape form to bake the clay around.The possibilities are endless considering every rock is different.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ Years ago I made a bunch of Rock Purses. This was after I spent many weeks searching for the perfect rocks on job sites I visited with my hubby.

This one is in Linda Geer's collection

My very 1st try many many years ago

made with Sculpey Ultralight clay

With a larger rock you can make bowls and covered dishes like these 2 I made.

A few more tutorials you can find on the web to make rock purses, vessels, bowls and boxes.

    Tonya, I love your blog and read it daily! I keep trying to sign up as a follower, but it won’t let me unless I sign up for FB. Not ready to sign up for FB yet… Am I missing something?

    Thanks Janie ๐Ÿ™‚ Networked Blogs is part of Facebook, but you can follow any blog using a RSS feed reader like Google Reader, My Yahoo or even some email programs. I use Mozilla Thunderbird for my emails. It had a built in news & blog reader.

    When you are on my blog, up in the address bar, on the right, you should see a little orange square with 3 white curved lines. Mouse over that icon and text will pop up that says subscribe to this page. Click it and a drop box appears that shows the different feeds you can subscribe to. Pick the one that says “Subscribe to Tonja’s Polyclay Corner RSS feed”. The next page will give you several options as to what program you want to use to subscribe (follow) my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚
