Wee Origami Dishes

Origami Dishes

I made these little dishes out of Super Sculpey and baked them according to the directions.  I know.  I suck at sculpting.  But this was my first time using Sculpey in well over twenty years.

BUT THEN.  I thought I would use découpage techniques (which I’ve never done before) and experiment with Mod Podge (which I have never used before) and paste some torn up bits of origami paper over top, make ’em look like they’re papier mâché or something.

So it was pretty simple.  I started with laying one untorn sheet on the bottom of the dish, as a base, and then I tore up other sheets in colours I liked for the rest of it.

Some Mod Podge and a brush later, I’m sticking away.

On this one I put a cutout of a key, to imply that perhaps you could keep your keys in this dish.

Then I just coated it all with a layer of Mod Podge and let it all dry.

Tada.

Simple but fun.

A corgi. A small boy. A sense of adventure. Chaos ensues.

    1. Mod Podge seems to be a magic American invention that I have only just discovered. It seems to be some sort of extra strength school glue (at least, that’s what it looks like), which also acts as a sealant. It’s neat stuff.

  1. Those dishes are beautiful. They are very versatile too. I once made something similar and used fancy paper napkins and modge podge. I decorated small gift boxes.You’ve inspired me to make the dishes. Thanks
